Ronaldo: I give myself 10 out of 10. Real Madrid? 9 out of 10

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has given himself '10 out of 10' for the season just gone.

And the former Manchester United ace says title winning Real deserve '9 out of 10' after finishing above Barcelona in the Spanish Liga standings.

He said in AS: "I would give my season a 10 on an individual level and collectively a nine, because we wanted to win more titles, the Champions League for example."

Madrid's bid for a record 10th European Cup has been at the very top of the club's wish-list for a number of years now, but Ronaldo believes the wait will soon be over.

"We've been close this year, but we need to stay calm. The 10th will arrive in the next season or two. We know that everyone is focused on winning the Champions League. You notice it in the street, but we need to stay calm."

Asked if he felt he deserved the crown this year, as has been suggested by his coach Mourinho, Ronaldo said: "I'm not the one who judges who deserves to win the Ballon d'Or, but I think I've had a fantastic season.

"I've won the most difficult league in the world. I agree with what Mourinho said, but what I want now is have a great European Championships, because that could also help me in the Ballon d'Or, although honestly it's not a matter that concerns me much.

"I'm happy with the season that I've had, but I'm already only thinking of helping my country now."
