Real Madrid ace Ronaldo insists no rift with Mourinho

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo insists there's no rift with coach Jose Mourinho.

Ronaldo believes Mourinho is the best there is.

"He knows what he has to do to make the team win and I am sure we will do better in his second year at Madrid, as happened with me," he said.

"Mourinho is the best: he has shown that in all the leagues he has coached in. He knows better than anyone that we have to improve in all aspects and only those who work with him know what he is like."

Ronaldo scored 40 times in the Primera Division to break the record shared by former Madrid great Hugo Sanchez and Athletic Bilbao legend Telmo Zarra, but the Portuguese says he would prefer titles to goals.

"I would prefer to have scored half the goals and won the league or the Champions League," he said.

"But I've felt more comfortable (than last year) and, individually, this was perhaps my best season."
