Some fans and pundits have worried that Madrid’s star player may need a break after playing every minute for Los Blancos this season apart from the game against Real Sociedad. The 29 year old also went to this summer’s World Cup with Portugal.

Despite some people’s concerns, Ancelotti insists his star player is fit and ready for the challenge Elche will bring on Tuesday.

”No, for now Ronaldo does not need a rest. He’s in great shape, in good condition, mentally focused.

”We need him even more when he’s on top form.”

The Italian also spoke about Ronaldo’s position in the side after he scored a hat trick in Real’s 8-2 rout of Deportivo at the weekend.

”Where he plays is circumstantial. I think that Cristiano has to be given freedom to do what his instinct tells him on the pitch.

”If he has to move over to the right, he does. Interchanging positions between the forwards is a good thing, because it adds unpredictability to our attacking play.”

The Portuguese star has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks after reports suggested he was unhappy at the Santiago Bernabeu.
