Real Madrid extend their unbeated run to 38 games as they gasp a 3-0 victory against Sevilla in the first leg of the round of 16 in Copa del Rey. "Everyone in the team wants to play all the time, and we all go through bad moments".
"All of us who are in the team always want to play but I am fine", he told beIN Sports.
The Sun's Emanuele Giulianelli reported Monday that Manchester United had made an inquiry into James' availability for a summer transfer.
However, the decision paid off, and Zidane confirmed after the game that Ronaldo will lead his Real Madrid attack in the La Liga clash with Granada.
"I am staying, I am staying".
Cristiano Ronaldo won his fourth Ballon d'Or title in 2016, is already a Real Madrid and legend and will go down in history as Portugal's captain who lifted the Euro 2016 trophy.
Sevilla, a point behind Barca in third, face a hard trip to in-form Real Sociedad (fifth) while Atletico Madrid (sixth) travel to mid-table Eibar.
Real manager Zinedine Zidane is more than pleased with the contributions of the attacker, knowing it's necessary to have a large squad of performers to avoid a midseason slump like they experienced last season. "He scored two goals and did an important job, like everyone else", the Frenchman said.
"And here I am living that dream". I'm happy here, but I want to play more.
"I don't think [those critics] doubt his potential, because it's tremendous and his statistics show that", Zidane said.
However, Trigueros pulled one back to make it 3-1 on the night and give the Yellow Submarine a vital lifeline ahead of the second leg at El Madrigal in a week's time.
