Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has labelled his club as "great" as he has been impressed with everything he has observed.

The Portugal star also promised to try and win the Copa del Rey, and score a goal against bitter rivals Barcelona in the final.

"I've never seen a club as great as Real Madrid. It is impressive on all levels: in its greatness, in its fanbase, in its history," Ronaldo revealed to Cadena SER. "The reaction we get is incredible wherever we go.

"I'm accustomed to dealing with unpleasant situations. I sometimes get bothered by things I hear or that people say to me, but they are a part of my life. I only listen when they say 'This Portuguese player is very good.' I don't need people to annoy me in order to play well.

"I always try to give my best when I'm on the pitch and I try to help my team win with goals and passes. I always try to be the best."

Ronaldo admits to being a target by his opponents, but has learnt not to retaliate.

"Look at my legs and see how bruised they are. But that's normal. I'm used to being challenged," he said. "I try not to answer back. I get up and continue playing.
"I was kicked around the same way when I was a kid, and I got up and carried on because they were all bigger than me."

"In order to be successful you have to believe and feel you can become a footballer. If you work hard I'm sure you can achieve what you want. Everyone has one chance in their lives and they have to make good use of it.

After being involved in 34 appearance for the Blancos this season, Ronaldo says he is still feeling strong and ready to perform for the second-half of the season.

"I don't feel tired. I feel very well," continued the Portuguese midfielder. "I've felt even better in the last stretch of the championship. I think this is obvious on the pitch."

"We will win the Copa del Rey final and I will try to score."

The 26-year-old has scored 34 goals this term. Real Madrid sit in second place in La Liga, seven points behind Barcelona.
