The Portuguese has expressed his frustration at not claiming the league in the last four years and says Zinedine Zidane’s side need to be more confident and consistent
Cristiano Ronaldo has told Real Madrid they have to win the league this season after failing to land the Liga title since 2012.
While los Blancos have won the Copa del Rey and two Champions League title in that period, Ronaldo admits the club’s reputation demands they must win the league more often.
Zinedine Zidane’s side resume domestic duties currently joint top of La Liga with Atletico Madrid and visit Real Betis on Saturday hoping to end a run of four consecutive draws.
“A club of Real Madrid’s stature can’t go so long without winning LaLiga,” Ronaldo told Marca.
“It is a competition we must be more consistent in and we are confident we can win it.”
After Saturday’s clash Madrid face Legia Warsaw at the Bernabeu, with Ronaldo admitting his side want to become the first team to retain the Champions League.
“In the dressing room, we’ve talked about becoming the first team to win consecutive Champions Leagues,” he added.
“It’ll be difficult though, and there is a reason why no team has managed it before.”
“The Champions League is special and has a completely different feel. It radiates something different and you can feel how Real Madrid are the club with the most Champions League titles.”
