Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo said “if we were all at my level maybe we would be leaders” after his side’s 1-0 derby defeat by Atletico Madrid. A first defeat under Zinedine Zidane leaves Real nine points off leaders Barcelona, and four below Atletico. Real were missing Gareth Bale and Marcelo through injury, while Karim Benzema was replaced at half-time. “I don’t want to disrespect anyone, but when the best players aren’t available it’s harder to win,” Ronaldo said. “I like to play with Karim, with Bale, with Marcelo. “I’m not saying the others like Lucas Vazquez, Jese and Mateo Kovacic are not good players – they are very good players – but it’s not the same.” Afterwards he sought to clarify his quotes, telling Marca: “When I say that, I am talking about my fitness level, not my level as a player. I am no better than any of my team-mates”. Ronaldo used an expletive to describe how he feels the media describe him and added “but I don’t listen to what the press say. The statistics and numbers don’t lie”
