Ronaldo out? Real Madrid fans want Ballon d’Or winner dropped

A staggering 32.2 per cent of Real Madrid fans would drop three-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a poll in Spanish newspaper AS.

On a weekend that saw Real Madrid lose their grasp on top spot in La Liga for the first time time since November, fans of the Spanish giants have had their say on the team’s current predicament.

Supporters were first posed a question regarding formation, and an incredible 92.1 per cent of fans called for Carlo Ancelotti to ditch his current tactics and revert to a 4-4-2 formation.

That would mean one of Madrid’s impressive front three, the so-called ‘BBC’ of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, would need to make way.

In the poll, Bale, who has been jeered on a couple of occasions despite his impressive start in the Spanish capital, was top of the pile, while Ronaldo was second.

Benzema, therefore, has proven to be the most popular member of Madrid’s frontline; a stat which will surprise many given Ronaldo’s previous success at the club.

Bale picked up a worrying 46.1 per cent of the votes, while Ronaldo would be dropped by 32.2 per cent of supporters.
