Ronaldo says salary not an issue


MADRID — Cristiano Ronaldo is still "feeling sad" at Real Madrid but denies it's because of money as he committed himself to the Spanish club on Tuesday.

Ronaldo revealed his feelings after scoring twice in a 3-0 victory against Granada in the Spanish League on Sunday, saying professional reasons had made him unhappy at Madrid without revealing them.

"That I am feeling sad and have expressed this sadness has created a huge stir. I am accused of wanting more money, but one day it will be shown that this is not the case," Ronaldo said in a statement.

"At this point, I just want to guarantee to the Real Madrid fans that my motivation, dedication, commitment and desire to win all competitions will not be affected. I have too much respect for myself and for Real Madrid to ever give less to the club than all I am capable of."

Madrid has not responded to Ronaldo's comments.
