UCL: Fernandes makes claim about Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Madrid clash

Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has claimed that fellow teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, has a smell for goal.

Fernandes said Ronaldo has a reputation for doing things differently in the Champions League, adding that the former Juventus and Real Madrid star has won the tournament many times.

He said this on Tuesday during his pre-match press conference ahead of Man United’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.

“Cristiano has won this competition many times,” Fernandes said.

“Everyone knows in this kind of competition he has that smell for the goal, he has that smell for doing different things.

“But in the same way, we have Rapha (Raphael Varane), who has won the Champions League four times and is a player capable of doing it.

“When Cristiano won the first one, he probably was not the most influential player or had more experience in that competition (than others) and he won it anyway, and he helped the team win the Champions League.

“Being Cristiano or another one, the most important for us is winning the game and going through this stage,” he said.
