Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Cristiano Ronaldo can be even better than he's been in the last two seasons, according to

"He'll come back hungrier than ever, because he hates losing and has been on the brink of reaching the Champions League final the last two seasons. I'm sure he'll want to erase that from his memory, like we all do, and win the trophy. I've got no concerns at all about his physical condition", Mourinho said in his typically confident manner.

The question of whether Ronaldo can maintain his incredible form of the last two seasons, when he's scored over 40 goals a year in La Liga, is one that has been circulating around Real Madrid.

Club managers love the effect Ronaldo has had on his teammates, as they believe he has made them more competitive and more professional.
