Ramos Warns United: Ronaldo is at His Peak

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United, you’ve been warned: Cristiano Ronaldo, your former player, is on fire, and he’s coming to get you. At least, that’s what Real Madrid’s stand-in captain, Sergio Ramos, is saying ahead of the monumental UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first-leg clash between the clubs at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Following Ronaldo’s latest hat trick -- the 20th of his Real Madrid career -- on Saturday in a 4-1 demolition of Sevilla, Ramos said: “Cristiano is going through the best moment of his career and we are so lucky to have him at Real Madrid. United is the most important game of our season. We are going into this super-important match and mentally the group is convinced we will beat United.”

Ronaldo has 24 goals in 22 games played for Los Blancos so far this season, and 38 goals in all competitions. As Real legend Emilio Butragueno said, "It seems almost routine that Ronaldo scores a hat-trick. We are looking at a phenomenon. I don’t remember anything like it. And also his goals are beautiful.”

As impressive as Ronaldo’s numbers are, perhaps Butragueno has never heard of FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, who has 35 goals in La Liga so far this season, and 46 in all competitions.
