Real Madrid manager, Rafa Benitez has insisted that he does not have issues with Cristiano Ronaldo as long as his performances don’t drop.

The pair were caught on camera having a feisty argument in training, after Benitez disallowed Ronaldo’s goal for offside.

Few days later, the Portugal captain put in a fine display, as Madrid crushed Manchester City 4-1.

Benitez explained that what happens on the pitch is most important.

“My relationship with him is good,” he told reporters in China when asked about Ronaldo.

“When someone gets angry during a training session, but then does their job, there’s no problem, it’s fine.”

The former Inter Milan boss also admitted that he would have selection headache, when James Rodriguez is fully fit.

“As a coach I am delighted to have players with quality like that,” he said.

“To be competitive, they need to be at 100 per cent and after that I will make my decision. Both of them are going to make my job much harder.”

Madrid will play Inter in the International Champions Cup on Monday.
