Real Madrid manager, Rafael Benitez has heaped praise on star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, following their 3-1 victory over Real Sociedad.
Ronaldo missed from the spot, but made up for it by scoring from the spot and putting the club in front following a Bruma equaliser in the second half.
Benitez was more than pleased with his men’s display, but had to single out Ronaldo for his performance.
“We controlled the game, apart from 10 minutes. We created many chances and if we had taken more of them we would have been more comfortable,” he told reporters after the match.
“Despite missing the penalty, Ronaldo took another one and [carried] the team on his back. The whole team showed character and responsibility.
“If we had taken more of our chances we would have had a much more comfortable game.”
