Raul scolds Ronaldo for timing of complaints

Ronaldo protested Monday, a day before Madrid played Arsenal in the Champions League, saying he may be forced to leave at the end of the season. Madrid lost the second-round, first-leg match 1-0 at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

"His only mistake was in the day. It wasn't the best time. He disturbed the magic of the Champions League thinking of himself more than the team," Raul was quoted as saying by news agency Efe on Wednesday.

Raul said Madrid players "would help him so he feels better."

"We need Ronaldo at his best and he must fulfill his obligation by scoring goals for the team. He is loved at the Bernabeu when he does things well," the Spain striker said.

On Wednesday, Madrid denied a report suggesting it may sell Ronaldo at the end of the season, while AC Milan president Adriano Galliani said he would welcome the chance to sign the Brazilian.

Ronaldo has scored 94 goals in 144 appearances for Madrid.
