Dani Carvajal has said nobody doubts Cristiano Ronaldo as he is set to feature in his 400th game for the club after a recent frustrating run of form.
Madrid travel to Borussia Dortmund for a Champions League game on Wednesday — Ronaldo’s 400th game — and speaking at the prematch news conference, Carvajal said: “Nobody doubts Cristiano.
“I have the good luck to enjoy him all year — every training session is spectacular.
“He always pulls us along, and the shots will end up going in. Whenever he does not score for a while, he ends up shutting us all up.”
Real Madrid have kept just one clean sheet in their first six La Liga games and are now seven points behind leaders Barcelona, but Carvajal said he believed Zinedine Zidane’s side would solve those problems.
“If I knew why I would tell the boss and we’d correct it,” he said. “We have conceded goals — it is something we must correct. But we are at the start of the season, and we will get tighter at the back.”
