Cristiano Ronaldo is known for breaking records and setting new ones but the Portuguese has stated that he record follows him and he do not chase after record.

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo stated that he doesn’t follow record but rather followed by record.

The Portuguese is known for breaking record and setting a new one but claims it just come naturally without him focusing too much on it.

Ronaldo set a new international goalscoring record the week after his transfer to the Reds was announced and is currently on an astonishing 115 goals for Portugal.

In December, he scored against Arsenal to pass 800 career goals and then, on his way to a hat-trick versus Tottenham in March, he surpassed Josef Bican as FIFA’s all-time record goalscorer in competitive matches.

“The records [are] coming in a natural way,” he added. “I don’t follow the records, but the records follow me so it’s good.

“It’s still my motivation to carry on working hard, to still love the passion for the game, and of course Manchester and my teammates help me all the way so I have to appreciate all the people who help Cristiano.

“It’s always nice to score goals for this club. When it is a hat trick it’s even more [nice].

“But the most important thing for me is to try to win the games and try to win some championship or some cup but I believe that Manchester will be where they belong. Sometimes it takes time, but I still believe.”

Ronaldo grab the attention at Old Trafford despite a disappointing season, scoring 24 goals across all competitions and netting various individual awards.

He is glad that the fans have always been behind him from that memorable first game back, and admits he was ‘nervous’ prior to hitting a brace in a 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle United in M16.

“What I have to say to the fans is they are amazing,” Ronaldo told club media. “Even when you’ve lost the game, they always support us, they’re always with us.

“The supporters are always in my heart and it’s the people that all should respect because they are always on our side.

“For example the first game, of course, I not just felt it in the game but one day before in the hotel.

“I was a little bit nervous before which is normal, but things go well. I start the game, I score two goals and it was very, very nice.”
