Brazilian and Real Madrid right defender has described how happy Real Madrid are have Cristiano Ronaldo.
Real Madrid required Ronaldo to help them come from behind last night in the Champions League to record 3-1 win at home to Paris Saint-German in the first leg of their last -16 tie.
Ronald cancelled out Adrien Rabiot’s opener for the visitor from the penalty spot and become the first player in Champions League history to score 100 goals for the same club.
The Portuguese superstar grabbed another seven minutes from time, while Marcelo netted to give Real big advantage going into the second leg.
And Marcelo has admitted Ronaldo gives so much joy to Real, because he is such a big-game player.
When asked about Ronaldo’s display, Marcelo said: “Cristiano did not surprise us.
“We know that he works hard, pushes himself, and he is always there in the key moments.
“It makes us happy knowing we have the best player with us.”
Meanwhile, Luka Modric insists the result shows that Real can beat anyone left in the competition.
He said: “The result was good for us, we played well from start to finish and now we're contented.
"This was the first, we still have one to go, but the way we played tonight, we can beat anyone.
“Until now, this was probably the most important game of the season, it means a lot to us.
