In an interview, Ronaldo said hewas not satisfied with the result as he blamed luck and insisted that Manchester United could have suffered a very heavy defeat.

“Manchester didn’t do much, they created two chances from set pieces. English teams are always looking for set pieces.”

Ronaldo, however, shifted focus to their remaining group fixtures as he insisted that his team can qualify from the group as they continue their quest for another place in the final.

He said, “But we will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of the group and we are good.”

“We are a good team but it is a long way to the final. These people and the club dream of winning the Champions League but we take it step by step.”
