Judge us on silverware - Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo says the quality of the Manchester United side can only be gauged at the end of the season.

United are attempting a Premier League and Champions League double, with boss Sir Alex Ferguson claiming his squad is the best he has had at his disposal.

"I also think that this is the most talented team," said winger Ronaldo, 23, whose side face Barcelona in their Champions semi-final on Wednesday.

"But you can only confirm this at the end of the season, by what was won."

Ronaldo has been in inspirational form for United this season, scoring 38 goals during the campaign.

On the way, he has overtaken George Best's record of 32 goals in a season by a winger at the club, which was set in 1968.


United, who are being pushed by Chelsea in the battle for England's top-flight crown, achieved the Treble in 1999 but Ronaldo has played down making any comparisons with Red Devils teams of yesteryear for the time being.

"There is a lot of talent, I think that we are going along the right path," added Ronaldo.

"Game after game we have shown that we have a fantastic team, with a lot of talent and magnificent players, but at the end of the season we will be able to provide a definite answer if this team is the best Manchester United side of all time.

"If we win the Champions League or the Premier League we will have a better idea."
