Jorge Valdano

Jorge Valdano said on the ‘El Larguero’ radio programme that Real Madrid «passed up a great chance to win». He then surprised everyone with his comment about Cristiano Ronaldo: «He is really static in attacking positions and needs help, now he doesn’t take players on, he can’t seem to create a move and then finish it off.»

For Valdano, «Real Madrid kept hold of the ball just so as not to let Atlético have it, but not because they were looking to score a second goal. They were happy enough just controlling the situation without doing any damage to Atlético de Madrid». The Argentinean described Real Madrid’s play as «not especially defensive, they are a tidy side, but very careful to keep their shape and not lose control, they care more about not making mistakes than they do about taking risks.”
