Carvajal: Ronaldo will shut up critics

Dani Carvajal believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to form is imminent and he will once again prove his doubters wrong.

The Portuguese forward has failed to score in each of his two La Liga outings this season and Madrid’s game at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday will be his 400th match for the club.

“There isn’t anybody who doubts Cristiano,” Carvajal is quoted as telling his press conference by Diario AS.

“Every training session with him is amazing and I’m lucky enough to be able to enjoy him all the time.

“He is the player who always ends us pulling him up and eventually his efforts will start turning into goals, he will shut everybody up.

“Our defence? We have conceded goals and must work hard to correct it but this is the start of the season and there is plenty of time to rectify the situation.”
