Madrid - Real Madrid says FIFA player of the year candidate Cristiano Ronaldo and coach Jose Mourinho will skip Monday's awards gala because of team commitments.

Madrid says neither Portuguese nominee nor players Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos will be in Zurich because the team is traveling to Malaga for the return leg of their Copa del Rey series. Former Madrid players Zinedine Zidane and Emiliano Butragueno will represent the Spanish club.
