Carlo Ancelotti says that it is not a tough job to manage Ronaldo

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says that it is not a tough job to manage a player like Cristiano Ronaldo.

Regarded as one of the best in the world, it has been suggested that Ronaldo is too much of an ego within the dressing room. The Portuguese superstar has been criticised for failing to celebrate goals scored by his teammates and instead concentrating on his own inability to find the back of the net on some occasions. His desire to score goals at a frantic pace has partly been responsible for the 30-year-old getting an astonishing 48 goals in just 38 games this campaign.

Ancelotti reveals that Ronaldo is a player who manages himself and he certainly does not give any problems at all. The former Manchester United man is regarded as a great professional and someone who looks after his body well. Ronaldo needs just a couple of goals in order to better his tally from last season. His goals have helped keep Madrid in the title race, while they have qualified for the Champions League semi-final of the beating archrivals Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals. Ronaldo has not been talking with the media for the last few weeks after facing intense criticism for his lack of celebration following Gareth Bale’s recent goal.

"Is it hard to manage a player like him? Quite the opposite he manages himself,” said the Real Madrid manager. Ancelotti also defended the selection of Javier Hernandez in the starting line-up for the match against Atletico Madrid. "Chicharito played very well. He has suffered a lot this season, has played very little, but in the end he deserves this very important goal for us. He never dropped his hands, even in difficult moments, trained very well, and in the end it paid off for him,” continued Ancelotti.
