Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has expressed his delight over Cristiano Ronaldo ending his scoring drought against Schalke 04 in the UEFA Champions League.
Ronaldo, who had not scored in 3 games, scored the first to put the Spanish giants ahead, and later provided an assist for left-back Marcelo to seal a 2-0 win.
“Today we needed a game like that, with this attitude. Everything went well.”
“He scored, he played well and gave an assist,” added Ancelotti. “It’s not a problem for us if he doesn’t score for a game or two but it’s obvious that the goal did him good.
“It wasn’t only a goal for the statistics. It was an important goal – the lead goal.”
