Alonso: Madrid do not depend on Ronaldo

The former Liverpool midfielder does not think that los Blancos have become overly reliant on the Portugal international, who plundered two more goals in a 3-0 win in Bilbao

Xabi Alonso insists that Real Madrid are not dependent upon Cristiano Ronaldo and claims that the entire team have "come good" at exactly right stage of the season.

Ronaldo was once again the star of the show as los Blancos cruised to a 3-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday evening, scoring twice - a stunning free kick and a bullet header - before setting up Gonzalo Higuain for a goal of his own.
