Melbourne: Real Madrid star striker Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that his 'personal problems' have been affecting his form this season but insisted that he will not be leaving the La Liga giants this summer.
A French television claimed last week that the Portuguese international has been flying frequently to North Africa after training sessions in his private jet to meet Moroccan kickboxer Badr Hari, which has sparked off gay rumours again.

Ronaldo had also shared a series of photos on a holiday he took with Hari and was even pictured lifted in the boxer's arms with the caption "Just married. Always there to pick you up, bro."
After scoring four goals in Real's 8-0 rout of Malmo in Champions League, Ronaldo admitted that his personal problems had been affected his game but added that he was in a better place at present, News.com.au reported.
Ronaldo also quashed rumours of a strained relationship with under-fire Bernabeu boss Rafa Benitez, saying that he was doing a good job and adapting well to Real.
