Ronaldo obsessed by Man Utd's 1999 Euro triumph

Cristiano Ronaldo admits he's become obsessed with Manchester United's amazing 1999 Champions League triumph.

Ronaldo said: "Many times I have watched on television as Manchester United won this trophy. It is something I want to do as well.

"I was 14 years old then, living in Madeira. Since then, I have watched the match time and time again on TV at home in Manchester.

"The manager has said United should have won it more than twice. I think the same. This is a fantastic club with great players. We have the experience. We have the team. We have a great chance.

"It is a great competition and it would be such a great experience to win it.

"Every one of the lads wants to win not just the Champions league but the Premier League also.

"We know we have a good chance because we are in such a good position."

United look the best team in Europe right now and Ronaldo admitted: "Maybe we are the best team at the moment.

"But we must not forget you have Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and also Barcelona. Even so, we are in a very good position right now.

"To win 2-0 at a big team like Roma is a very, very good result.

"And the lads know if we carry on like this we have a good chance to win the Champions League. But we have to take it game by game. If we do that, then we will be OK."
