Zidane: Why Ronaldo Grabbed Phone After Facial Injury

Zinedine Zidane: Why Cristiano Ronaldo Grabbed Phone After Facial Injury

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jan 24, 2018 09:00 PM @KurtLaduma

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has explained why Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed a phone after a sustaining a nasty knock to his face in Los Blancos’ win on the weekend.

Zidane Gives Update On Ronaldo's Cut Head

Late in Real's emphatic 7-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday night, the Portuguese, who scored two goals in the fixture, was seen bleeding from the face after a boot from an opposition player caught him in the face.

Soon after, Ronaldo grabbed a physio's phone to look at the extent of the damage, a sentiment Zidane recently echoed in defence of the Portuguese.

"Cristiano grabbed the mobile to see if he could continue playing or not," he said, according to Sport

"He wanted to know whether the cut was very deep or not. I am saying exactly what he told us in the dressing room after. I am not making anything up."

Reports: Mourinho Rejects Ronaldo Return

Ronaldo has scored 18 goals and assisted a further four strikes in 25 games across all competitions for Real so far this season, but only six of those goals have come in LaLiga.

Do you think Ronaldo's brace against Betis will help him return to form? Let us know in the comments section below.

G'evening guys..I dnt think theres anything wrong that CR7 did....the 1st thing u do after getting injured as a player,u would wana check how bad does the injury look like,expecially if u are injured on ur face ..sometimes we are quick to blow a whistle for nothing.....and obviously Barca fans have a problem with that...but i wouldnt mind even if Messi did the same thing...and again this article has got nothing to do with regards to who is better than the other between Messi & CR7....guys this debate will never ever end...all we should do is to appreciate these guys,they are not average players these are great Madrista but i respect Messi alot...

Thats why clubs have got physios to make that call on the field. Goes to show how vain Ronaldo is that he doesn't trust even his physio. Does Zidane think we fell off a paw paw tree. Ronaldo is all about the brand. Good grief is this player a man or mouse. Never in all my years as a footballer (amateur) or watching football have I ever seen anything like that. Yes he has loads of talent but for me MESSI is the allround package. Viva Messi Viva

Ronaldo is also a facial brand on other companies or brand so he should b concerned about his face. He doesn't need a scar on his face.

I somehow believe he just wanted to check the extent of his injury after all why would he take a selfie with a physio's cellphone

@Falazah what skills are u particularly referring to. He uses one skill, if someone puts him in a corner and doesn't allow him penetrate into the eighteen area, he end up crying and not coming up with plan. So Messi is the best after Ronaldhino. Get your facts straight because u talk rub....

@Golden Boots Only Messi donkeys could hate the best player in the world. Messi doesn't have skill other than short runs. Ronaldo have the skill to decorate the game just like Ronaldinho was.
