Ronaldo reveals Zidane admiration

The Portugal international is delighted to work with the France legend, while he has also praised head coach Carlo Ancelotti

Cristiano Ronaldo has hailed Zinedine Zidane’s positive influence at Real Madrid and feels the Frenchman’s presence is of great help to the club’s youngsters.

Zidane returned to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer as one of head coach Carlo Ancelotti’s assistants and Ronaldo is happy to be working with the former midfielder.

“Zizou gives his experience as a player especially for the young players, which is fantastic,” Ronaldo told Talk Sport.

“I’m very glad to work with him because he was a fantastic player and he has a lot of experience, so for me it’s perfect. I like to be around the best.”

Ronaldo then went on to discuss his relationship with Ancelotti and stressed that he has already learned a lot since the Italian’s arrival at Madrid.

“He’s a fantastic man and fantastic person. He was a player before so he has experience of how to deal with players.

“I’m very glad to work with him I have learnt many things with him and his staff, so I’m very happy.”

Ronaldo was rested for Madrid’s 2-0 Copa del Rey win over Olimpic de Xativa but is expected to return for Sunday’s Liga clash with Valencia.
