Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has made a shock admission: 'I'm not perfect'.

Well, those weren't his exact words, but the confident Portuguese superstar only rates himself as a nine out of ten.

The 28-year-old, who has averaged a goal a game since his £80m move from Manchester United to the Bernabeu in 2009, says there is still room for improvement in his game.

When asked how he rates himself out of ten by TV channel Cuatro, Ronaldo replied: “Nine. I always want to improve and 10 is the maximum. I’m not a 10.

“My mentality is one of playing well, training well, and that is the target.”

Ronaldo, who must have been feeling in a particularly modest mood, then described his life as "normal" when asked to sum himself up in one word.

"My attitude to life is normal," the 2008 Ballon d'Or winner added. "I try to do the right things, to do them well.

“I’m a footballer and I try to make people happy.”

Ronaldo has scored an astonishing 12 goals in 10 games for Real Madrid this season - and appears to be on course to replicate the last three seasons by scoring over 50 goals for Los Blancos.
