Can Man United end Tottenham’s 100% start to the season at White Hart Lane on Saturday? Click here for Gavin Beech’s thoughts on the match plus all the best prices.

Real Madrid sporting director Jorge Valdano believes Cristiano Ronaldo is nervous about proving he is worth the £80million the Spanish club paid for him during the summer.

The former Manchester United man moved to the Bernabeu in a world record move, but has had a fairly quiet start to his career in Spain so far.

The Portuguese attacker scored from the penalty spot in Madrid’s 3-2 win over Deportivo on the first day of the season, but he also squandered several good chances.

However, an unconcerned Valdano told RNE: “I liked Cristiano in the first league game. He scored, even if it was from the penalty spot, and he had a couple of good moves.

“Maybe he is somewhat nervous because he is a very good professional and he always tries to be the best, but you have to wait a couple of games and then you will see who he is.

“He needs a bit of time to adapt, like what happened when Zidane moved here.”
