In a short interview ahead of the epic UEFA Champions League final showdown in Cardiff, the 32-year-old goal poacher added that he knows that his achievements will always be there as a mark.
He said: "I haven't broken so many records by accident. I am aware of the fact that what I’ve achieved in football has already left and will continue to leave a mark," he said.
"I don't consider myself a galactico. But I consider myself a player who has created history in Manchester, Madrid and with the national team."
Ronaldo and team-mates who are holders of the prestigious UCL title will want to retain it, but will face a strong Italian side who have only conceded three goals en-route to the final.
