The Madrid press is convinced Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s powers are waning.
Ronaldo was again flat for victory over Malaga and was even jeered by home fans.
Alfredo Relano, of AS , declared: “I think the worst thing happening in Madrid is that Cristiano is now the shadow of himself.
“For years, Madrid relied on him, his fifty goals per season. It was as if Real were entering the field with a goal. It is a thing of the past, Cristiano does not score, nor even intimidate. I do not think it’s forever, though.
“He just needs to adapt to a new role, but it takes time.”
