Ronaldo: Who is Mario Gotze?

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed he has never heard of Borussia Dortmund starlet Mario Gotze, despite the recent media attention surrounding him.

• Player Profile: Mario Gotze

Ronaldo is likely to have angered many German fans with his comments after Gotze became one of the most talked about young players in the game when helping Dortmund to the Bundesliga title last season.

The 19-year-old also earned himself a call-up to the German national team, but Ronaldo told Bild: "Who's Gotze? In what position does he play? Is he good? I have little opportunity to see Bundesliga games."

However, Ronaldo claimed he was not bothered by his critics and added: "I'm not interested in what people say about me. I am always in top form; I work hard on myself. That's why nobody makes an attack on my sporting abilities."
