Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Ronaldo ego positive thing

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has defended Cristiano Ronaldo over claims he is selfish. Ronaldo was dubbed "egotistical" earlier this week by television presenter Sara Carbonero, who is also the girlfriend of Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

"A forward has to be selfish," he said.

"It's a positive egotism and it's a big characteristic in strikers that score lots of goals.

"Against Espanyol, even when we were winning 3-0, Cristiano was coming back to defend the corners, which shows he is a team player and not selfish."
