Pepe Bordalas fears Cristiano Ronaldo will hit form for Real Madrid at Getafe

Pepe Bordalas fears Cristiano Ronaldo will hit form for Real Madrid at Getafe
From ESPN - October 12, 2017

Getafe coach Pepe Bordalas has played down the idea that Cristiano Ronaldo is going through a "mini crisis" ahead of his side's meeting with Real Madrid on Saturday.

Ronaldo missed the first four games of the La Liga season through suspension and has failed to scorein the three top-flight matches he has played since returning despite 22 attempts at goal.

However, the Portugal captain has scored four times in World Cup qualifiers for his country already since the start of the season, as well as netting four times in the first two Champions League group outings for Madrid.

Bordalas indicated to radio show "El Larguero"that the media had overblown the talk that the 32-year-old was struggling, saying: "We are used to Cristiano Ronaldo having a amini crisis.' We know how he can fix that situation, very quickly.

"We have no doubt that he is a great player, the best, and in any moment he can appear and be decisive. He has shown he is the best over a long period.

"For any coach he is a reference point, he has won absolutely everything and remains as ambitious as he is."
