Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane fires fierce Cristiano Ronaldo warning
Real Madrid superstar has endured a difficult season so far, scoring just twice in La Liga.
The legendary Portuguese’s poor form has played a huge part in Real falling a hefty eight points behind Barcelona in the title race.
Ronaldo, who scored 42 goals in 46 games last season, is still the firm favourite to claim the 2017 Ballon d’Or prize later this week.
And Real boss Zidane has backed CR7 to get back in the goals very soon.
Ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund, he said: “We have to give Cristiano Ronaldo a bit more support and show more respect, he’s fine.
“He’s so good that when things aren’t going quite so well for him, people start to talk.
“Real Madrid know what he’s doing, he’s working hard until the goals start flowing again. Last season he did a phenomenal job.
“It’s a long season and we’re only halfway there. Write Cristiano Ronaldo off at your peril.”
