Zinedine Zidane Comments On Cristiano Ronaldo's Poor Performance

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 21, 2017 07:55 AM @KurtLaduma

Manager Zinedine Zidane was disappointed with Real Madrid’s La Liga loss on Wednesday night, and was asked if he regretted starting superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese forward made his return to domestic action against Real Betis on Wednesday after serving a five-match suspension.  

The 32-year-old failed to score in the match, but Zinedine insisted he does not regret starting Ronaldo up front.

"No (complaints), nothing," he said, according to Marca.  

"On the contrary, quite the contrary. We are happy to have Cristiano with us and for him to be in the team.

"I do not regret anything, I always want to win the game.

"You can make different substitutions, but the idea is the same, to go for the win."

Real were made to rue their missed chances, but the manager insisted his team will remain calm.

"It's bad. This is football, when the ball just did not want to go in, this can happen. We did not have a great game but neither a bad game," he continued.

"The first minutes of the second half were good, then it's true that we rushed it a little. We had 26 or 27 chances, today the ball did not want to go in, especially here, in our home stadium.

"I love this word, tranquillity. We are going to have tranquillity. We will be calm."

If messi was a legend he was supposed to score at Spanish super cup second leg were king Ronaldo wasn't in the pith. So it simply means its not every game a legend can score

@The double trouble any player can have a bad game but still have a brilliant season. Don't just speak out of hate. Cr7 has scored more than 50+goals per season for the last 4/5seasons, he was Portugal's top goal scorer when they won the Euro, he was the top scorer again in the champion's lig n as we speak he has already scored 14goals for Portugal in the WCQ in 7games while messi has scored 3goals in 10matches. Chief even if you hate someone just coz he's better than your favorite at least give him the respect he deserves n always talk facts not hate
