Camacho urges Real Madrid ace Ronaldo to wind back media commitments

Former Real Madrid coach Jose Antonio Camacho has told Cristiano Ronaldo to step back from his media commitments.

Camacho, now in charge of Osasuna, says Ronaldo is "talking too much" in his first months at Real and risks mental fatigue.

Certainly, Ronaldo's interaction with the media has gone up a couple levels since his time with Manchester United and Camacho says: "He talks too much about everything about Real Madrid, for better or for worse.

"If you keep talking, you only encourage fans to target you.

"Look, when I played for Real Madrid, my mother couldn't go to away grounds because of the abuse I would receive. But when I played at the same ground for Spain, I was a hero. Playing for Madrid is unlike anyother club."
