Cristiano Ronaldo admits he is feeling at home at Real Madrid.
The Portugal international forward moved to Spain this summer in a record-breaking £80million transfer from Manchester United.
Despite the burden of sporting the world record price tag, Ronaldo has started in style, scoring in each of his four Primera Liga outings so far.
The World and European Player of the Year insists he never had any doubt that he would settle in quickly, but has paid tribute to his team-mates for helping him assimilate.
“I knew things would go well,” he told the club’s official website.
“I just needed to be patient and stick to the same plan I had in Manchester.
“I understand that there are people who do not like what I do on the pitch, but it is just the way I play. That is who I am and I will continue being that person.
“I am happy in Madrid. I am adjusting to life little by little. I wanted to come here for some time and the club helped me make it a reality.
“Thank God things are going well, and it is all due to my team-mates. They are helping me a lot.”
Real look set for a battle with arch-rivals Barcelona at the top of the table this season, with the Catalan outfit also yet to drop a point this term.
Ronaldo accepts that Pep Guardiola’s side represent the sternest competition to Real’s ambitions.
“Barca are a great team and they have a solid squad,” he said.
“We are going to go head-to-head all season long, so we’ll see who comes out on top.”
