Russia’s national team coach Fabio Capello says that Real Madrid should fully investigate the reasons behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s dip in form. After being one of the renowned goal scorers in the world, the Portuguese superstar has now gone to matches without a goal.
This is unlikely to be a major concern for any other player. However, Ronaldo has scored an astonishing 30 goals in just 20 games this season. His performances have been a major factor in Madrid setting a new record in Europe by winning 22 matches in succession. Capello says that there must be other reasons to Ronaldo’s dip in form.
Capello managed Real Madrid for a short period of time and led them to the league title. The Italian is now in charge of Russia, where his future is also less certain after not having been paid for several months. The Russian FA is understood to be not in a position to pay the £ 6 million per year contract of the Italian. Until now, rich benefactors have made it possible for Russia to hire coaches like Guus Hiddink. At this situation, this has not been possible, but Capello is not worried about the situation with Russia. The former England boss has called for the Real Madrid medical staff to investigate Ronaldo.
“It is very important that he is not at his usual level. At the end of last year Madrid began the game already 1-0 ahead, because they had Cristiano. But he is an extraordinary player and we will return to 100 percent very soon.There should be a talk with the doctors to know how each player is, including looking at their blood tests. When you have a defence which helps you and gives you security, you do not make so many mistakes,” said Capello.
