Several players from Real Madrid’s roster have openly expressed having doubts about Cristiano Ronaldo’s physical level

Madrid, Spain – Following their 40-match unbeaten run, Real Madrid has suffered two losses in as many games and several Merengue players have openly expressed having doubts about Cristiano Ronaldo physical level as they do not feel he is the solution to their recent woes, according to Paco Garcia-Caridad from El Chiringuito.

“There’s a ruckus among the teammates, they doubt him, there are important players who believe that he is not in a good shape and that he’s not a solution. It worries them to see the way he loses balls and now the trend of Cristiano Ronaldo has no solution. If he does not change in March or April, will he have taken a dangerous trend?” said Garcia-Caridad.

Ronaldo has been in the eye of the hurricane for most of his career, whether it is antics, the things he says or his style of play. Regardless of this, the Portuguese has lifted both The Best FIFA Men’s Player award and a fourth career Ballon d’Or awards while winning the Champions League with his club and Euro 2016 with his country.

However Madrid’s 2-1 La Liga loss at Sevilla last Sunday, and then Wednesday’s 2-1 Copa del Rey quarterfinal first leg defeat at home to Celta Vigo, have led to a huge swing in sentiment, particularly among the local media in the Spanish capital.

The feeling, not only left with the Spanish capital local media, but also with Real Madrid’s roster, and not just any players as it was pointed by Garcia-Caridad.

This brings the question, should Real Madrid be concern about Ronaldo’s health? Should he be bench for another player? or should Zinedine Zidane change the playing-scheme?
