Real Madrid fans urge Ronaldo to stay during CL celebrations
Madrid: Real Madrid supporters urged Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club during celebrations at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Sunday to mark their third consecutive Champions League title after an open-top bus parade through the Spanish capital.
Ronaldo had overshadowed Madrid's 3-1 win over Liverpool in Saturday's final in Kiev to lift a record-extending 13th European Cup by dropping a hint that he was about to leave the club in an interview moments after collecting the trophy, declaring "it was beautiful to be at Real Madrid".
The Portuguese looked in a far better mood during the celebrations in Madrid and lifted supporters' hopes that he would not be leaving by declaring "See you next year" while the team were gathered at the Cibeles fountain where they traditionally celebrate trophy wins. Ronaldo was given a hero's welcome at the Bernabeu as fans chanted his name and sang "Cristiano please stay".
Madrid's all-time top scorer gave an optimistic speech saying: "I feel proud to play at the biggest club in the world. I'm very comfortable here."
