Cristiano Ronaldo must reinvent himself if he wants to prolong his Real Madrid career, according to Sky Sports La Liga Weekly podcast. The forward, who turns 32 in February, was recently substituted for tactical reasons for the first time in his seven years at the Santiago Bernabeu in Reals 2-2 draw at Las Palmas. Ronaldo shows his displeasure after being substituted by Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane at Las Palmas However, while Real head coach Zinedine Zidane was criticised in some quarters of the Spanish press for the move, with Ronaldo himself visibly unhappy with the decision, Sky Sports Spanish football commentator Rob Palmer thinks the Frenchman made the right call. Ronaldo turns 32 in February and he is now at the veteran stage of his career, but the problem is he has not quite accepted that now, Palmer told this weeks La Liga Weekly podcast.He still thinks he is a young man and he parades himself round the field and that does not help him. Ronaldo scored four goals including a perfect hat-trick as Portugal annihilated Andorra 6-0 in Match Day 2 of the World Cup qualifiers When he gets to the point where he accepts that he is no longer the great Cristiano Ronaldo when he was 27, 28 and scoring 55 goals a season and has to slightly reinvent himself, like Lionel Messi is having to do at the moment, then he will maybe become more acceptable to the general public.

You would have to say though that as a manager, he would be your problem in the changing room because you would still want to get the best out of him, massage his ego and you would want Cristiano Ronaldo in your team.But I thought it was great management by Zinedine Zidane the other week to bring him off as he was not being effective in that game. It would be foolish to get rid of him when he is 31, 32. He is not at the peak of his powers, but he is not past it yet either. Rob Palmer, Sky Sports Spanish football commentator And when you looked around the players and thought: Who should I bring off who is not having an impact on this game and who will raise the game of everybody else? and he brought Ronaldo off.If you can bring Ronaldo off, then that gets everybody elses backs up, as if he is going to go for the first time, and it was the first time he had been taken off tactically, then this manager actually means the business.So I thought it was great management by Zidane, even though he got hammered in the Spanish press for it at the time. Cristiano Ronaldo was far from impressed after being substituted for Real Madrid at Las Palmas If Ronaldo wants to maintain his career in the Spanish capital, though, the Portugal international - whose current deal at Real runs until the summer of 2018 - must copy the likes of Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta and change his game, Palmer thinks.It is how Cristiano Ronaldo reinvents himself - he keeps coming out with: I am going to play until I am 40, I am still a great player. So he just needs to look in the mirror really, he said.But he can still be an effective player till he is 35, 36 if he reinvents himself as Xavi [Hernandez] did, as Iniesta is currently doing, as Messi has done as well.But he has been injured and maybe he came back a little bit early and maybe Real Madrid are guilty of playing him before he is ready. Once he is back in the changing room, he is on the pitch as they want him to play. Zidane (right) may need to start managing Ronaldos time on the pitch to prolong his career at the Santiago Bernabeu Equally, however, if Ronaldo is to keep playing at the highest level until the end of Real contract, then Palmer believes Zidane will need to keep managing his star mans game time going forward.He has always played the full 90 minutes when he is fit, so maybe he has to be managed a bit more and Zidane has to be that man who goes head-to-head with him, he added.But it would be foolish to get rid of him when he is 31, 32. He is not at the peak of his powers, but he is not past it yet either.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the British Masters on Sky Sports.

Better still, its in the same team and there are 13 races left for it to develop. The dominance of Mercedes, which has swept all six races and all six pole positions so far, prompted fears that this season was becoming even more predictable than the last, when Sebastian Vettel won the final nine races and Red Bull crushed everyone. Then, at last weekends Monaco GP, a feud erupted out of nowhere between Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to add some much-needed spice to a dull campaign. Hamilton has won four races this season, but Rosberg captured Sundays race from pole for his second victory and reclaimed the overall championship lead with 122 points to 118 for his teammate. "Were fierce competitors, so you can never expect us to be best friends and compete as fiercely as we do," Hamilton said after the Monaco GP. "But I will try to remain respectful." Hamilton ignited the row by taking the brash step of publicly claiming that Rosberg, the son of former F1 champ Keke Rosberg, has less hunger than him after growing up in the luxurious environment of Monaco. Rosberg didnt respond to those claims verbally, but in the eyes of Hamilton he responded to them on the track by making a surprising last-gasp mistake in qualifying that led to a yellow flag. The session was abruptly halted, ending any hopes that Hamilton, at full throttle just behind, had of winning pole. The fallout escalated quickly. An incensed Hamilton insinuated that Rosberg -- cleared by stewards of any wrongdoing -- had done it on purpose, suggesting he would watch his own back the way the late Ayrton Senna did when he fell out with Alain Prost when they drove for McLaren in the late 1980s. With tensions running high, the two Mercedes drivers were not in the postt-qualifying team meeting together and were at opposite ends for the traditional pre-race jaunt around the circuit.dddddddddddd After Rosbergs win, there was no handshake from Hamilton, who came in second to give Mercedes a fifth straight 1-2 finish. There have been fiery team rivalries before, notably the one between Vettel and Mark Webber at Red Bull. That got very bitter, with each driver ignoring team orders to let the other one pass and making blunt comments about the other. But the crucial difference is that, apart from 2010 when Webber challenged for the title, the four-time defending champion Vettel was always winning. Relations were ice-cold, but there also seemed to be a mutual acceptance they would never get along and the professional working environment within Red Bull continued to operate smoothly. The matter is more delicate for Rosberg and Hamilton because theyve known each other for such a long time, racing karts against each other and even going on holiday together -- something that was never going to happen with Webber and Vettel, and even less so with Senna and Prost. Rosberg is less experienced than Hamilton, with five GP wins compared to Hamiltons 26, but the German has shown real consistency with top-two finishes in all six races. Hamilton would still be ahead, though, but for the engine failure that forced the British driver to retire in the season opener at Melbourne. That technical glitch, on what is the most reliable car in F1, likely still rankles him. After several frustrating seasons with McLaren, Hamilton has a great chance to win his second F1 title six years on. But standing in his way is his childhood friend. That relationship is going to be severely tested and the spotlight will be beaming straight in the face of both drivers at the Canadian GP in two weeks time.
