Benitez says even Gareth Bale doesn’t enjoy the same status.

“There is one indisputable player, that is Cristiano Ronaldo, and the rest are very good footballers who have to give it their all,” said Benitez.

“Training is designed to work on developing the players’ potential and ability. The first thing we coaches consider is the impression we get during training. This is a special group of players which possess a very high level of ability.

“The players are made aware of that in the personal conversations I have with them. I speak with Gareth Bale and he knows that what we need is to be competitive and win games. Cristiano Ronaldo makes the difference. We have an fantastic team and a player who can make the difference and needs to continue doing so.”
