Cristiano Ronaldo wants to play as much as possible and begs not to be rested.

The Portuguese winger is on the way to produce a sensational, incredible season as he has already 22 goals to his name and it’s only January! Tiredness may slow his march towards an amazing goalscoring record but he does not want to rested.

‘This time last season the boss gave me a break for four or five days,’ he told the Daily Mirror.

‘But people who know me will know that all I want to do is play. I just want to play, score goals, make assists and do good things for the team.

‘I’m enjoying staying here in Manchester. There isn’t much sun at the moment, but it’s not a problem. The weather is not the most important thing.

‘I had a great season in 2007 and played really well. I scored a lot of goals, made a few goals and it was a wonderful season for me.

‘But this season I’m at the same level. I’ve scored quite a few goals, played at a good level and the important thing is to keep going like that. I want to learn more and play more.


It’s not true that he is at the same level: he is much better.

‘I want to score as many goals as I can. I have many opportunities to score because my team-mates make good passes and because there are so many games, not just the Premier League but Champions League and FA Cup.’

Hopefully there will be.
