Real Madrid head coach, Zinedine Zidane says he wants Cristiano Ronaldo to remain at Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo has the backing of the Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane.
The Real boss and former World cup superstar said that his team needs Ronaldo ahead of the second leg of their 2016 Champions League game at Bernabeau.
Real Madrid have come in for some criticism from team supporters, unhappy with the Real’s poor season that sees them in third place, 12 points behind league leader Barcelona and four points behind cross-city rival Real Atletico.
The Portuguese international was booed by some Real Madrid fans in the second half of Real and Celta Vigo match on Saturday before he scored four goals in 28 minutes to claim a 7-1 victory for the Real Madrid.
That game took the team’s league tally for the season to 27 and saw the former ManU superstar replace Barcelona’s Luis Suarez as the top scorer in Spanish La Liga. The boos were largely down to the fact that cross-city rival Atletico Madrid still four points ahead of the Real Madrid.
Such criticism has led to suggestions and rumors that this could be Ronaldo’s last season in Madrid. But Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane insists that Real Madrid should keep Ronald and said that he is “not in favour” of selling the three-time world player of the year Ronaldo.
Speaking to the media ahead of the team’s Champions League game with Italian club AS Roma, Zidane has stated his strong desire to keep the Portuguese international at Real Madrid. “I am the coach and I want to him,” said Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, via the DailyMail. Zidane also told Ronald to ignore criticism.
The La Liga top scorer made a huge headline headline when he scored four goals in the team’s 7-1 thrashing of Celta Vigo on Saturday. That game sent Real into the tie at the Bernabeau’s Champions League, this time against the Italian side Roma.
The Portuguese international has broke the 350 goal mark for Real Madrid and has now become the fastest player in Europe to score that great number of goal for one club.
