Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti states that he is not concerned about the dip in form suffered by Cristiano Ronaldo over the last few weeks. Just over a month ago, the Portuguese superstar held in 12 goal advantage over Lionel Messi in the la Liga goalscoring charts.
This advantage has been reduced to just two due to a combination of Ronaldo going on a barren form and Messi on an unstoppable run. Ronaldo has missed two matches during this period due to suspension. Since his return in the 4-0 thrashing against Atletico Madrid, he has not scored in back-to-back matches.
As a result, the spotlight is on the 30-year-old ahead of the Champions League knockout match against Schalke. The German club will be warned enough about the Portuguese, who performs extremely well when he is often questioned. The form shown by Ronaldo appears to have translated to Real Madrid as well. The Spanish club had a strong advantage in the la Liga race going into the winter break, but now the lead has been cut to just one point after 23 matches. Ancelotti is keen to rediscover the winning feeling starting with the European encounter. Schalke’s recent poor run of form will give Real Madrid a lot of confidence. Continue reading →
The 2014 FIFA Ballon d’Or seems to be one of the major topics of discussion that emerges when C.Ronaldo is being talked about as the Portuguese forward continues reaching milestones along with his rival Lionel Messi, it really is no surprise why both players are considered to be the best in the world with no one else even coming close to what these talented performers are accomplishing with their respective club.
In one of the latest League matches of Real Madrid, they faced off with Celta de Vigo in a game where Cristiano Ronaldo scored all the goals of the entire match as he secured a hat-trick which was more than enough for Real Madrid to snatch their 12th victory of the season meanwhile Lionel Messi also played a pivotal role for Barcelona as he also scored 3 times when his club played against Espanyol.
Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo says that he is confident that his former team can return to winning ways under Louis van Gaal, but they need to give the manager time. The Dutchman took charge of the club in the summer, but his first few months have been very poor indeed. United are facing the prospect of another season without Champions League football since they are struggling to assert their superiority in the top four race. Performances of late have certainly improved, but they are at least a season away from winning the title once again according to Ronaldo.
Ronaldo managed to win numerous Premier League titles with United before moving onto Real Madrid for a then world record transfer fee of £ 80 million. During the last 12 months, there have been several rumours that Ronaldo is keen on a return to Old Trafford where he is still adored by the fans. The 29-year-old has spoken with interest about playing in front of the United faithful once again. He is unlikely to come cheap since Madrid could command more than £ 60 million in transfer fees for the player. Ronaldo says that Chelsea, this season, are the team to beat and United will find it difficult to overcome Jose Mourinho’s men.
“Sometimes the coaches need time to change the team to what they want. In the Premier League all the teams are fighting a lot for points and even the clubs at the bottom of the table can beat those at the top. So it is tough. To get a good squad and a good team takes time so lets give Van Gaal the time he needs. He is a fantastic coach and very experienced and I am certain he will make United champions again, if not this year then very spoon after that,” said Ronaldo.
