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."

Los Blancos won at the Anoeta Stadium courtesy of goals from Borja Mayoral, an own goal, as well as Gareth Bale's sixth strike at his favourite venue. In so doing, Real scored in their 73rd consecutive game – a run dating back to 30 April 2016, when they last failed to score, against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League. As a result, Zinedine Zidane's side have equalled the world record for the longest scoring run in history, set by Pele's Santos between 1961 and 1963, as reported by AS. The Spanish giants had already beaten FC Barcelona's Spanish record of scoring in 44 straight games, as well as Bayern Munich's European record run of finding the back of the net in 61 consecutive matches. Santos' reported world record was set between 21 November 1961 and 15 August 1963, when the Brazilian side scored 245 goals in 73 games before being halted. Real, meanwhile, have now scored 198 goals in their past 73 games, and will have a chance to break the world record when they welcome Real Betis to the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night. I guess now Real can forget about breaking this record..
