Ronaldo: I'm commited to Real cause
Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed his commitment to Real Madrid after declaring himself as "sad" in the Spanish capital.
The Portuguese forward refused to celebrate as he scored two goals in a 3-0 victory over Granada, confessing to his unhappiness in the post-match press conference, but declining to offer any explanation.
The Spanish media were quick to suggest that the 27-year-old, who has scored 150 goals in 149 matches for Real, was eager to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, with free-spending Paris St Germain bandied about as a possible destination.
But tonight Ronaldo took to Twitter to reassure his fans that, despite his apparent malaise, he remains fully committed to the Spanish champions' cause. "That I am feeling sad and have expressed this sadness has created a huge stir," he tweeted.
"I am accused of wanting more money, but one day it will be shown that this is not the case," he added. "At this point, I just want to guarantee to the Real Madrid fans that my motivation, dedication, commitment and desire to win all competitions will not be affected.
"I have too much respect for myself and for Real Madrid to ever give less to the club than all I am capable of. Abrazos [hugs] to all madridistas."
This morning PSG were quick to distance themselves from the possibility of a move for the Portugal international.
