Real Madrids Cristiano Ronaldo: Goals part of Champions League history
Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo has called it a privilege to be the Champions Leagues all-time leading goal scorer.
Los Blancoscoach Zinedine Zidane said on Tuesday that his injured star playerhas been passed fit to returnto the field for Wednesdays Champions League semifinal return leg against Manchester City after Ronaldo missed thefirst-leg 0-0 drawat the Etihad Stadium.
The much-anticipated return to action has buoyed Real Madrids chances for much-needed offense and also means that Ronaldo can pull further away from Barcelona rival Lionel Messi at the top of the all-time goalscoring charts.
With atotal of 93 UEFA Champions League goals, Ronaldo is clear at the top after Barcelona lost to Atletico Madrid in quarterfinals and ended Messis chances of adding to his current total of 83.
The 31-year-oldReal Madrid forward told UEFAs official websitethat the statistics dont lie.

I dont doubt that I will go down in footballing history, Ronaldo said. Whether people like it or not, the numbers speak for themselves. I will be up there with the rest. Some like it more, some like it less, but I have no doubt that Im already in the history of football.
Its a privilege to know that Im the leading goalscorer of all time in the Champions League. Obviously I feel very happy at having achieved that. Its a special competition and a competition that Real Madrid love.
Ive been lucky enough to win it twice and obviously I want to win it more -- hopefully again this year. Fans love the Champions League and obviously I also love it, because its a special competition.
Ronaldo has missed Madrids past three games with a muscle problem in his right thigh but underwent an intensive recovery programme in recent days. He took part in training with his teammates on Tuesday morning and will resume his part in the clubs bid to seal a record 11th European Cup triumph on Wednesday.
