Real Madrid striker Ronaldo has been left out of the squad for the city derby against Atletico Madrid in the Primera Liga on Saturday.

The Brazilian has been criticised by Real fans for below-par performances and on Thursday Real's new president Fernando Martin said he would not put up with players who failed to put in the required effort.

Real coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro said the player had been left out for tactical reasons.
