Real Madrid star Ronaldo: Best form of my life

Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo says he's in the best form of his career.

But the former Manchester United star insists he's not obsessed about winning a second Ballon d'Or.

Ronaldo said: "This is the best time in my life, both physically and psychologically. I want to keep it up and enjoy myself much more with Madridistas because my connection with them has evolved considerably in recent months. I feel very close to them and that's why I want to stay here a long time. I want to show my love for this shirt and do my best for the team.

"I guarantee I'll try to improve on this year's numbers. I may not be able to score more goals, but I can serve more assists. It's harder each time, but I always try to do better. Usain Bolt ran 100 meters in 9.58 seconds and it will be practically impossible for him to do better than that, but I'm sure he'll try.

"I'm not too concerned about the Ballon d'Or because the most important thing for me was to win La Liga, which is a difficult title, if not the toughest in Europe. I don't vote for the Ballon d'Or and everyone has different tastes. Several Real Madrid players and myself did enough to deserve a nomination and I cannot hide my desire to win it because it is the greatest accolade a player can win on an individual level."
