Zinédine Zidane does not understand that there is so much noise about the action of Cristiano Ronaldo in the match between Real Madrid and Deportivo la Coruña (7-1) last Sunday. The Portuguese world star headed his squad just before time to 6-1, but was wounded at his head. Ronaldo used the carer’s mobile phone to see how serious his injury was.
“He just wanted to see if it was a big or small wound. And judge whether he could continue playing or not. More wasn’t it”, says Zidane Tuesday at a press conference in the run-up to the duel with Leganés for the Copa del Rey. After the incident, several media reports said that Ronaldo had even taken a selfie,”People talk a lot about this above all. Unfortunately, we have no control over this. We cannot change what people say or think.
“It was a nasty and big wound. That is it. That’s what he said in the locker room and I’m not going to come up with anything”, says the Frenchman,”They have attached the wound and he returned today. He trained with a swollen eye. In contrast to the Spanish media, Zidane also commented on the rumours surrounding Kepa Arrizabalaga, the goalkeeper recently registered with Athletic Club.
Zidane wouldn’t have been enthusiastic about the Real target and, given that the goalkeeper doesn’t change club, would have won “the internal struggle” within Real,”My idea for the club is just that we don’t need to change so much at Real right now. It bothers me that I hear and read that I have won’ the war’. I am now mainly occupied with my players and what they do at Real; the rest does not interest me”.
Which club is there for the next round?
