Zidane Explains 'Amateur' Reaction To Ronaldo Wonder Goal

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, who reacted pricelessly to Cristiano Ronaldo's bicycle kick wonder goal against Juventus, has now explained his antics.

The Frenchman, whose famous goal against Bayer Leverkusen in the 2002 UEFA Champions League final is often considered as the greatest strike in the competition's history, was stunned by his player's overhead kick against Juventus.

Zidane was seen rubbing his head in disbelief after Ronaldo's incredible goal, and the Los Blancos boss later explained his priceless reaction

"I'm a Real Madrid manager, but also a football fan, and when I see a goal like the Cristiano's, you get random gestures. We are happy to have him on our team," he said after the game, as quoted by RealTOTAL.

"I reacted like an amateur to Cristiano's goal because it was super. We’re happy he is at Real Madrid because he does things like this."

The Frenchman was also asked about comparisons between Ronaldo's bicycle kick and his own strike against Leverkusen in 2002.

"Cristiano's overhead kick could be one of the most beautiful goals in Champions League history but, of course, mine in Glasgow against Bayer Leverkusen is more beautiful," he said.

"Not all stadiums applaud the opposition's player, but tonight, they did for Cristiano."

Still maintain that hardwork pays while natural talent simplifies it all.

@alizebucs1986 ay come-on dude. You cant argue that the fuss is coz its cr7 man. Griezman scored a similar goal in UEFA, i think also Manzukic scored a super overhead kick againat Real in UEFA final. It was an overhead kick, inside the box and from an unmarked player. Yes it was a beautiful goal but ive seen better in the Champions league also

There are too many beautiful goals scored in the champions league every year,the magnitude of the game determines the importance of the goal. Zizuo is more beautiful since it was the final,the goal wont matter if Los blancos dont win the UCL

It was a great goal, but many people have scored that goal, so it's not like it's a 'new' goal...

There fuss around this goal only because its Cr7 who scored it. We've seen better goals over the years, Ibra and crouch scoring similar goals over the years, i think Rooney also had one similar. It was a beautiful goal but im not moved
