Real Madrid GM Valdano: Ronaldo does not need peptalk

Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano says there's no need to lift the confidence of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Before last night's defeat of Espanyol, Ronaldo was targeted by a section of Real fans over his scattergun form.

"For me, against Real Sociedad he was one of the most important players of the team. When he found space in the last 15 minutes of the match he was virtually unstoppable.

"He does not need encouragement. If anything he has enough personality to deal with these difficulties," said Valdano.
