Cristiano Ronaldo Incredible Goal at First Training with Zinedine Zidane [Video]
Even Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted the Zidane effect in Real Madrid camp after just two games of him in charge. The Portuguese striker opened his goal scoring tally for the French in his second managed game however in the first one Cristiano Ronaldo contributed smartly by assisting on two occasions. Cristiano Ronaldo was reported to be unhappy with Rafa Benitez and to be honest the period under the Spanish manager was not a worth mentioning for the striker. Both Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo started the season for Benitez quietly, drawing against Sporting Gijon. While against the same opposition Real Madrid scored 5 goals on Sunday. Cristiano Ronaldo who scored twice for his side came up hailing the legend Zidane.
“There has been a change of mood in Real Madrid, a push in the right direction,” he told reporters.
“We have a better understanding with Zidane that is football”.
The Real Madrid coach has already spoken about Cristiano Ronaldo, naming him the best in the world ahead of Messi. The 2015 Ballon d’Or runner up has not been in the best of his scoring form lately occasionally misfiring against the tough opponents. His total goals of the season are currently on 27 however the positive change in team’s behavior is a good sign for him as well. Apart from him both Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale have started to find the net regularly thus relieving some pressure off him.
“I see a change for the better with Zidane’s arrival, but Zidane and Benitez both wanted the best for the club. I feel a better understanding with Zizou, don’t ask me why.”
I see shades of Carlo in Zidane,” he said. “He is a very serious person while at work, and good fun outside of it.” Cristiano Ronaldo has been very close to former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and Zidane has also worked with the Italian. Thus it can be expected that together the duo will lead their side to another glory.
