Ronaldo Nazario: Real Madrid have Cristiano and Benzema, they don’t need another No. 9

With no wins from their opening three home games of this LaLiga season, there has been a lot of talk suggesting Real Madrid need another No. 9 in their squad, but former striker Ronaldo Nazario says there is no room for another forward in the team.

Alvaro Morata was allowed to leave this summer for Chelsea, leaving no real like-for-like alternatives to Karim Benzema, but the Brazilian thinks Los Blancos should have enough firepower in their squad.

“Real Madrid’s approach is perfect,” he said, speaking at a charity golf tournament.

“They have Cristiano Ronaldo, the best player in the world, and Benzema, they do not need another No. 9.”

Ronaldo does not believe that their disappointing start is the disaster that many think it is, and still expects the club to challenge come May.

“Real Madrid have shown their ability in the last few years,” he added. “In other years it has been similar and they have still won titles.

“I hope the good results come back.”
