‘I Will Get Fit If Real Madrid Need Me’

​Former Real Madrid striker and football legend Ronaldo has joked that he will get fit and come back to play for the club due to their goalscoring issues. The Los Blancos have struggled for goals this campaign, scoring just nine in five games and they now lie seven points behind leaders Barcelona.

The Brazilian, who played for Real Madrid between 2002 and 2007, now claims that he is ready to return and solve Real Madrid’s problems.

According to AS, as reported by ​FourFourTwo, the Brazilian said, “We have a lot of players who can score goals and I’m sure it won’t be a problem. And if something happens, I’ll get back in shape myself if I’m needed.”

Real Madrid’s form has lead to the fans voicing their concerns, with the club winless in their three games at the Santiago Bernabeu, but Ronaldo has urged everyone to be calm, stating that it is too early to write them off.

“I don’t think Madrid have been lacking anything over the last few years, they’ve already shown what they are capable of. Last season they went through something similar and went on to win the league and the Champions League. This season is only just starting.”

“Even after winning everything we’ve won up to now, three poor games at home means the questions are starting but there is absolutely no doubt about the capabilities of the team,” he added.

Real Madrid next take on Deportivo Alaves before a Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund and they will look for an upturn in their form and get back to winning ways, though it is unlikely they will be able to utilize the services of Ronaldo.
