Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has dismissed concerns that star striker Cristiano Ronaldo was getting anxious in the 2-0 win over Espanyol during the weekend.
Ronaldo failed to score in the game as Alvaro Morata and Gareth Bale came up with the goals in either half to secure a fourth consecutive league victory for the table leaders. Reigning Ballon d’Or holder Ronaldo was least happy with the result given that he failed to score in yet another league match. This has been a difficult campaign for the 32-year-old Portuguese star, who continues to trail Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the La Liga goalscoring charts.

The Liga fans often have the complaints with the match officials that they deliberately happen to be a little more sparing towards the top teams and that perception would only have got stronger after yesterday’s match between Real Madrid and Osasuna.
There was a moment in the match when Cristiano Ronaldo made a clear case for getting booked as he disregarded the call of the referee, but, he ended up not getting punished for it.

Cristiano Ronaldo will not accept the offer of a new challenge in Asia, not for all the tea in China it would seem.
The three-time Ballon D’Or winner reportedly received a mega-bucks offer from an unnamed Chinese Super League Club, believed to be worth £86million a year in wages, but the Portuguese knocked them back and pledged his future to Real Madrid instead, saying that 'there is more to life than money'.
Never one to conform to type, Ronaldo is bucking the recent trend of overseas stars chasing the Yuan and moving to China.

Cristiano Ronaldo had a year to remember in 2016. The 31-year-old won the Champions League with Real Madrid last season and then the European Championship with Portugal in France in the summer. In December, Ronaldo was awarded the Ballon d'Or 2016 and a month later he was voted as The Best FIFA Men's Player.

Without a shadow of a doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo will go down in history as one of the best footballers to grace the field. The Portugal star recently claimed a fourth Ballon d’Or award after an incredible year that included a Champions League crown, a European Championship success and a World Club title – and he now sits just one World Player of the Year accolade behind Barcelona star and arch-rival Lionel Messi.
At 31 years old, Ronaldo’s time to claim the Ballon d’Or is running out but he is still capable of holding his own against the greatest players on the planet; as shown by his achievements this year.
While you could viably argue that Ronaldo was helped by Real Madrid’s success in the Champions League and Portugal’s triumph at Euro 2016 but at the end of the day, his influence in both competitions was clear for all to see and he certainly deserved to prosper on an individual basis.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo says that he at least has 10 more years of football left in him.
The forward recently signed a new contract with the Spanish club which would see him remain at the club until the summer of 2021. It is a major sign of commitment from Madrid given that Ronaldo is 31 years old. The Portuguese has been showing the first signs of his decline after having a very poor start,by his impeccable standards, to the league campaign. He has ‘only’ managed to come up with seven goals in 12 appearances for Madrid.

Whenever Cristiano Ronaldo had to leave the pitch in the middle of a Liga match in the past, it was either because of injury or something, but, never was it done by his coach tactically.
However, the unthinkable happened yesterday versus Las Palmas when he was called back into the dug-out by Zinedine Zidane without any injury probably because the Blancos boss thought that some other player would give him more value on the pitch at that time.
