Man Utd's Ronaldo: Speculation doesn't concern me

Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo insists he's never unsettled by press speculation.

"What the press speculate about goes over my head," Ronaldo said. "I have already been used to it for the past two years.

"I am calm. Everything's clear and I will repeat it once again so that the whole world understands: there will be news in two or three weeks.

"At the moment I am here, I am going to give my best and do the best possible in the European Championships."

The winger feels he is not far off from being officially declared the best in the world but rejected the suggestion that a good Euro 2008 would be the decisive factor.

"I had a great season," Ronaldo continued. "I was the top goalscorer in England, Europe and the Champions League.

"I think that I have nothing left to prove, but I always want to do well and do my best for myself.

"I am going to try to do things well and give my best, to do everything for a good European Championships.

"Now it depends on all of us. Our unity is going to make the difference. If we remain united I think we will go far.

"We'll have to see if I manage to score as much as I have done for Manchester United.

"I hope so. I can't promise anything apart from that I will work for this."
