Ronaldo, who played for Manchester United for six years before joining Real Madrid, said he “learned the elementary and basic rules of football, especially discipline” while in England. But he said La Liga was the best league in the world because it “relies on players’ skills and techniques.”

Ronaldo spoke Wednesday at the Dubai International Sports Conference.

Ronaldo is the Spanish league’s top scorer this year and says he has no intention of leaving Spain. While insisting he could adapt to any league, Ronald said he wants to stay at Real Madrid, adding “frankly I’m just enjoying the moment.”
