Valdano: Ronaldo has same spirit as Real Madrid

Real Madrid general manager Jorge Valdano insists they're not a one-man team.

Cristiano Ronaldo rescued Real again with a two-goal salvo in their 3-2 defeat of Osasuna last night.

"The saviour of this team is the team," insisted Valdano, before adding: "But Cristiano Ronaldo is someone who has very similar values to those of Real Madrid. Therefore, the fans expect much from him and wait until the last breath because they know he is a player who gives everything.

"Our fans recognise this and why they demand so much from him."
