Published Add your comment

Real Madrid forward Cristano Ronaldo and devoted his Primera Divison golden-boot to his team-mates after scoring twice in his side's victory over Almeria.

Ronaldo reached the 40-goal mark this weekend to beat the record held by Hugo Sanchez and Telmo Zarra, of 38.

And the Portuguese former World Footballer of the Year says he owes the award to each of his team-mates.

"The only reason I have scored so many goals is because of my teammates, and I am extremely appreciative. The Pichichi is for them and the fans," he said.


"I am generous with my teammates and they are generous with me. I wouldn't have scored 40 goals in La Liga without them."

"We are happy to end this season in this fashion. It isn't easy to score 102 goals, so hats off to my teammates. The coach wanted to end the season with a lot of goals in order to start the next one with ambition, and we did."

"It will be hard to score this many goals again, but nothing is impossible and I will work hard to do it."
