The physical trainer of Real Madrid advises Zidane to play Cristiano Ronaldo 90 minutes against Osasuna.
The wait will finally end. This Saturday Cristiano Ronaldo will make his big comeback on the field, 2 months after being released in mourning in the final of the Euro 2016. The Portuguese has been working like crazy since then, and should be in full shape for the event. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to play the whole game. According to OkDiario, the physical trainer of Real Madrid, Antonio Pintus wanted to calm the ardour: the rehabilitation of CR7 “must be gradual” to avoid any risk of relapse. And the relapse, that’s what regrets above all Zinédine Zidane. Always according to the Spanish site, ZZ would have made his staff the following recommendation: “No risks, no haste with Cristiano, nor with anyone.” A recommendation all the more important as Real is preparing to face a Titans calendar with 6 matches in 18 days only, the perfect trap to “fart” Ronaldo.
Zidane would therefore have planned to limit the playing time of his triple gold ball. To be clear, Cristiano will have to follow a “half-time” programme during the first games, in order to be able to hold the distance until next June. It is that we will have to start taking good care of Cristiano to see him still long on the grounds. Despite his age and experience, it is always difficult to curb the former Manchester United player who wants to play football, everywhere, all the time, at 10% or at 100%, regardless, he wants to be. Until September 10 and his return to the green rectangle, Cristiano will be able to pass the time by playing ping-pong, a sport in which he excels (he says so). Do you think CR7 should slow down a bit?
