God can’t please everyone – and nor can I, says Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that some fans have been disappointed with his so far this season – but added, “Not even God can please everyone”.

The Portuguese has scored 25 goals in all competitions, but has been frustrated with some of his team’s performances, leading to some criticism from fans.

“Everyone can think what they want [about me],” he told El Mundo.

“I go to bed every night with a very clear conscience and sleep well. We can’t live life obsessed by what others think of us, otherwise we wouldn’t live. Not even God can please everyone.

“[My actions on the pitch] come out naturally, they’re not planned. I do them because I don’t like to lose, but sometimes I regret them.

“Everything I’ve achieved in football has been because of the way I am. I can’t be asked to change. If you ask me to improve, I’ll accept that, but changing is very difficult.

“Some people love me, some people hate me and say I’m either arrogant, conceited or this or that.

“It’s part of my success. I was made to be the best.”
