Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has stated his desire to win this season’s La Liga title as the team enjoys a fine start to the season, having won each of their three opening matches, the latest a 5 – 2 victory over Osasuna on Saturday 10 September.
The Spanish giants are the defending European champions but they last won the La Liga in 2011-12 and have since seen city rivals Atletico Madrid win the competition on one occasion, in 2013-14, with Barcelona capturing every other league title.
Ronaldo opened the scoring against Osasuna as he played his first game since suffering an injury in the final of Euro 2016 and speaking afterwards he said he would love to end the season with the league title, as well as a clean sweep.
‘I want to win all possible trophies and would love to win La Liga,’ said Ronaldo, as reported by Goal.com.
‘It is a title that we will be going after and the team is looking good and solid. We’ve started well and I hope we can continue to do well. It is a long competition, but I am convinced we will win it this year,” he added.
Since his move to Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009, Ronaldo has won just one La Liga title but he has two European titles to show as well as several individual accolades.
