BAWS har förmånen att ge er en exklusiv intervju med Cristiano Ronaldo i samband med lanseringen av de nya MERCURIAL SUPERFLY CR7-fotbollskorna.
WHAT DO THE NEW MERCURIAL SUPERFLY CR7 BOOTS SAY ABOUT YOU?
The boots are well-suited for me because they’re elegant, beautiful, and they really shine differently. I think we’ll have a perfect relationship.
WHY WILL YOU WEAR THESE BOOTS FOR THE FIRST TIME ON EL CLÁSICO – IS IT THE PERFECT STAGE?
It’s not because it’s a classic or a derby. I’ve always liked trying out new boots, new collections, new colours. Obviously it’s a special game against a big team but it doesn’t mean I’m happier or less happy about a new boot than if it was another game. What I want the most is to play with the boots that I feel good in; the boots Nike creates; the most beautiful boots, and therefore, it will certainly be a special game and I hope that people will enjoy … and that I can score goals.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR EL CLÁSICO?
Always the same, my preparation for all games is always the same. I try to work the same way during the week. I try to focus. I try to do the same things as any other game, so, my preparation is always the same – Taking care of myself, resting and eating well, doing my best in training, to improve more and more, so, whether I play against Barcelona or any other team my, preparation is always the same.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR THIS SEASON?
Basically, it’s doing what I did last year. Obviously, I always want to try and perform my best, to help out the team with assists, with goals, and with good performances.
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION TO STRIVE FOR THE NEXT LEVEL YEAR AFTER YEAR?
I think that, for me, my greatest ambition is to continue to be at the highest level for as many years as possible. Every season presents a different challenge for me, so this year I won’t break the mold and will try to perform the same with the same objective – to always be the best. If we always think this way, we will all be better at our jobs.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO PLAYERS WHO ARE TRYING TO GO PRO?
I would say to always believe in your dreams and in your potential and in your self worth, and really commit to the player’s profession and work hard. This is my advice: focus, work hard, rest, listen to your coaches and… dream.
