‘Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player of his generation’- Zidane
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has labelled Christiano Ronaldo the player of his generation.
He said that Cristiano Ronaldo deserved to retain The Best FIFA men’s player award.
“Ronaldo is the best player of his generation, by a long way,” Zidane said. “He has shown that many times, he makes the difference in the big games. It is very deserved what he is winning tomorrow, all his prizes are deserved. He always shows he wants to be the best, and he is.”
Ronaldo is still on just one La Liga goal in 2017-18, from 33 shots, however Zidane said such statistical anomalies were not a concern.
“When Cristiano does not score I get asked always the same thing,” he said. “We are not worried, although it is better when he scores. It is important for him, but the most important is that he is getting chances. This lasts a long time. He is top scorer in the Champions League, and has a chance to score again next week in La Liga [at Girona].”
