Cristiano Ronaldo featured in Real Madrid’s 4-0 thrashing of Rosenborg last night. But the Portuguese superstar couldn’t have his name on the scoring sheet. The goals came from Lassana Diarra, Karim Benzema, and skipper Raul. Watch the highlights on our Video Page
Los Blancos’ game against Rosenborg was their last opportunity to warm up ahead of Saturday’s La Liga opening encounter against Deportivo La Coruna.
Speaking about Real Madrid’s upcoming league campaign, Cristiano Ronaldo declared:
“We are comfortable, calm, and ready for the league to start.”
He continued: “The objective is to always win but we must be calm and take it step by step. The team is ready and we will build a winning form bit by bit and always thinking positive.”
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to perform at his best for the Spanish giants. The former English Premier League Golden Boot winner has netted three times for his new club and two of those goals were penalties.
Cristiano Ronaldo fans are anxiously waiting to see their favorite player shine like the star of Real Madrid. According to coach Manuel Pellegrini, it will take time for the 24-year-old World Player of the year to be at his best.
“In pre-season there has been a lot of hard work and Cristiano has had to cope with many changes: a new country, a new league, and that takes time to adapt. I think he’ll be in good form for the start of La Liga.”
