As their La Liga title defence continues to crumble with Barcelona cruising at the top, Real Madrid are hardly flying high – but Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be!
The Portugal forward seems to have taken control of a plane as he and his Real team-mates prepare to take on Deportivo this evening.
Ronaldo posted an image of him in the cockpit of the aircraft, even sporting a pilot’s hat to ensure he looked the part.
The 28-year-old tweeted the picture along with the pithy caption ‘pilot for a few hours’.
The former Manchester United striker – when he comes back down to earth – is looking forward to a huge couple of weeks with Madrid.
The Spanish champions will face Barcelona in the second leg of their Copa Del Rey on Tuesday at the Nou Camp before Lionel Messi and Co travel to the Bernabeu for the week’s second Clasico in a league fixture.
After those two blockbusters are over and done with, Ronaldo must focus his attention on toppling United at Old Trafford in the Champions League on Tuesday March 5.
The two sides drew 1-1 in their first leg at the Bernabeu after Ronaldo towered over Patrice Evra to cancel out Danny Welbeck’s opener for the visiting Red Devils.
