- Cristiano Ronaldo believes that the return of Gareth Bale will change the fortunes of Real Madrid
- He added that if the current injury list returns to full fitness that the fortune of the club will change to a positive one
- Real Madrid suffered back to back defeat to Girona and Tottenham
Real Madrid star forward Cristiano Ronaldo believes the return of Gareth Bale and his other injured teammates could reignite Real Madrid's faltering season.
Los Blancos are already eight points adrift of La Liga table toppers Barcelona and have lost back-to-back fixtures this week.
The current La Liga champions lost to newly promoted Girona at the weekend before Tottenham beat them 3-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday.
But Ronaldo thinks the return to fitness of Bale, and full-back Dani Carvajal, could turn around their fortunes, as Las Palmas travel to the Bernabeu on Saturday.
Welsh captain Bale has missed Real's last seven matches after suffering a recurring calf injury but has returned to training.
Portuguese superstar Ronaldo said: "The players who arrived this summer have a lot of potential.
"Pepe, Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez made us stronger, but those in the squad today are younger.
"We also need Carvajal and Bale back.
"It is not a worse squad but it has less experience and that is very important. It's not an excuse, I'm happy and the alarms are not going off."
