Report: How Ronaldo Reacted To Zidane's Departure

Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid departure has shocked the football world, and it came amid speculation that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave the club. Here is how the Los Blancos superstar reportedly reacted to the news.

The Portugal captain played 114 games under Zidane, scoring 112 goals and assisting another 29 strikes. The duo lifted nine trophies together over the last two and a half years, but Ronaldo dropped a transfer bombshell after the UEFA Champions League final on the weekend, suggesting he could leave the club.

Just five days later, Zidane announced his resignation, and it remains to be seen whether or not his decision will have an impact on Ronaldo's future plans.

The latter had a strong personal relationship with the Frenchman, whose departure left him feeling "devastated", according to Marca.

It has been claimed the surprising news has left Ronaldo "shattered", and he now feels more isolated than ever after his countryman Pepe and Fabio Coentrao left last season already.

Ronaldo, though, expressed his gratitude towards his former boss on Instagram, saying (loosely translated from Portuguese): "All I feel is pride at having been your player. Coach, thanks for so much."
