"Perhaps there are players who shouldn't be at Madrid"

The Italian coach also suggest that Cristiano be more auto-critical: "He missed two clear chances and should look at his own conscience".

Cristiano Ronaldo’s polemic declarations following the Madrid derby are still generating fall-out in the world of football. The latest figure to comment on the Portuguese striker’s words was former Real Madrid coach, Fabio Capello. The Italian took advantage of his weekly slot on the Fox network to analyze Cristiano’s comments.

Capello stated that he understood the sentiment behind Cristiano's words when he observed "If every player was at my level, then we’d be first in the league". According to the 69 year old Italian, there are certain players at the club not worthy of wearing the famous white Real Madrid shirt. “On occasion we may tend to agree with Cristiano and openly say that there are certain players who maybe shouldn’t be at the club”, he observed.

He also recommended to Cristiano that before speaking out the player from Madeira should look internally at his own short-comings. “At the same time, Cristiano missed two decent chances at key moments during the Madrid derby; he needs to examine his own conscience before signaling others”
