In a recent interview, former Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello has suggested that he believes that Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo is at the moment, Real Madrid’s biggest problem for the current season. As Zinedine Zidane’s team lie level on points with their domestic rivals and La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid, the former Los Blancos’ manager does not seem too pleased with the last three fixtures against Eibar, Las Palmas and Villarreal ending in a draw.
The 31 year old forward did not make the start to the new season, as he took a knock to his knee during the Euro 2016 final, with the Italian manager feeling that the attacker’s fitness issues are still holding Real back and hampering their progress.
The ex England boss spoke to Onda Cero radio show El Transistor and stated, “Real Madrid’s current problem is Cristiano Ronaldo.”
“Because for me he is not perfect physically, he does not have the same balance with his knee.”
“I have seen him missing shots that he never misses, never.”
“And he is their goal scorer and the most important player in the team. Then they are missing important mid-fielders too.”
Ronaldo has so far only managed to score a total of three goals in as many as six appearances for Madrid, which is quite low by his usual standards.
However, one major boost for the champions of Europe would be the fact that the former Manchester United man struck four times for his national side in their recent 6-0 win over Andorra on Friday.
