Real Madrid coach Pellegrini satisfied with Ronaldo form

Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini insists he's satisfied with Cristiano Ronaldo's form after his goal against Espanyol on Saturday.

Ronaldo has found himself under the spotlight after struggling to hit top gear following his £80million move from Manchester United, and Madrid sporting director Jorge Valdano recently said he felt the FIFA World Player of the Year was "somewhat nervous" about proving his worth.

However, Pellegrini is not of the same belief, saying after Saturday night's 3-0 victory over Espanyol in which Ronaldo came off the bench to net his second goal in successive league games: "I don't think Ronaldo has a weight on his shoulders.

"I think that people are looking at him through a magnifying glass. The player is adapting to the league and to the team.

"I don't think he has any problems and he looks calm to me."
