Former Real Madrid player and candidate for FIFA Presidency Luís Figo has supported Cristiano Ronaldo on his Twitter account.

Whoever questions @Cristiano's passion and professionalism for @realmadrid completely ignores his history and character.

Figo wanted to defend Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Portuguese star was criticized after the 4-0 loss to Atlético de Madrid and the celebration of his 30th birthday right after such an important loss. According to reports, Ronaldo's commitment was never in question during Florentino Pérez's talk with the roster this Monday, but it's true that Cristiano Ronaldo needs to regain his best condition and form.

Ever since winning the 2014 FIFA Ballon D'Or, Ronaldo has not played to his full potential, and it will be crucial for Carlo Ancelotti and his staff to recover him.
