Is Real Madrid Overusing Ronaldo?

Real Madrid fans have to wonder if Jose Mourinho is riding the skills of Cristiano Ronaldo a little too much as stats indicate that Ronaldo has been on the pitch for 2,369 minutes so far this season in La Liga.

Ronaldo is the only non-goalkeeper in the top eight positions of the ranking for minutes played in La Liga, having participated in all of the team’s games in the league.

Only keepers Iraizoz (Athletic Bilbao), De Gea (Atletico) and Diego Alves (Almeria) are played more minutes than Ronaldo this season.
