Ronaldo happy with season

United are at the top of the Premier League, five points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea.

“I’m very happy with my season,” he said.

“I’ve scored a few important goals and I want to carry on, but I don’t need to think about what’s going on in the next weeks. I need to do my job, carry on and help the team.

“If you win every game 1-0 it’s good. Sometimes it’s important to score goals but Everton were not an easy team.

“I think we have to appreciate the attitude and the character of the team – 1-0, three points, it’s okay.”

Ronaldo also took time to heap praise on United’s veteran goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar.

“It’s unbelievable. Edwin deserves it; he’s a great man, a great goalkeeper. He works a lot – for his age! – and I’m really happy for him,” he added.
