Zidane: Why Ronaldo Shouldn't Leave Real

Former World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane has shared his view on why Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale should not leave Real Madrid.

Close Friend Reveals Ronaldo's Potential Future Plans

The French legend is considered to be one of the greatest players to have ever played for Los Blancos, having won the UEFA Champions League, La Liga and the UEFA Super Cup with them.

Zidane believes that if Ronaldo and Bale want to stay at the top of their game, they need to keep playing and training with the best players in the world.

"I remember in training at Real Madrid I would see Roberto Carlos and David Beckham practising free kicks, Ronaldo (de Lima) and Raul trying to score past the best goalkeeper in the world in Iker Casillas, and I knew I was playing with winners, with the best," he told ShortList.com.

"Playing with the best will give you a winning mentality because it gives you confidence.

"In an age where you can pick money over playing for the best clubs, with the best players, it is a big thing for the world's top players to make the right decision."

Zidane: Ronaldo & Bale Not Going Anywhere

Zizou also won the World Cup in 1998 and the European Championships two years later with France.
