Real 5-2 Sociedad: Ronaldo grabs hattrick in Los Blancos win - FCNaija

Cristiano Ronaldo has said he always believed he would return to top form despite a poor start to the season.

The five-time world player of the year grabbed a hat-trick for Los Blancos as they thrashed Real Sociedad 5-2 at the weekend and he said he never stopped working hard and never lost hope.

Ronaldo told Goal on his return to form: “I always look to show my best level, but sometimes things don't go as we would like them to.

“But experience has taught me that we have to keep working hard to achieve our goals.”

Madrid host PSG in the first leg on Wednesday and Ronaldo said: “We are going to play against a great team with excellent players, which we respect very much.

“But we have already shown that Real Madrid have a very strong and united group, with a lot of experience in this competition.

“We know we have to be very focused and play two very good games to move forward in the Champions League.”
