Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo said he is not obsessed about breaking the La Liga goalscoring record this season.
The Portuguese attacker has netted on 36 occasions for Jose Mourinho’s side in the league this term, and needs just three more to break the all-time record of 38 set by Athletic Bilbao’s Telmo Zarra (1950-51 season) and Real’s Hugo Sanchez (1989-90).
Most recently, Ronaldo hit a hat-trick in Real’s 4-0 win over Getafe at the weekend, and the former Manchester United attacker has just two league matches left to net three more goals to earn what would be an impressive achievement.
The Portuguese leads Barcelona ace Lionel Messi by five goals in the race for the Pichichi trophy, awarded to the golden boot winner in the Spanish top flight.
The 26-year-old, however, is not getting carried away with his achievements, simply putting his flurry of goals down to teamwork.
“I’m fighting to reach a very important mark, but I’m not obsessed about doing it,” Ronaldo told Real’s official site.
“I’m not thinking a lot about that (the record), I prefer to do my thing to help the team to win and if I beat the records then that would be good, but if I don’t to be honest I don’t care about that.”
“I just want to play to enjoy it and keep well myself.”
Ronaldo’s tally of 49 goals in all competitions has already broken the club record of 47 in a single season set by Real legend Ferenc Puskas in 1959-60.
