Cristiano Ronaldo: Why Zidane is delaying his return

CR7 continues to train away from the Madrid group despite its found form. Real problem or strategy of Zidane?


Good news! Cristiano Ronaldo is almost 100% after spending long weeks recuperating. It is the Catalan Sport newspaper that says it. But then, will we see CR7 on the lawn of Santiago Bernabéu this Saturday against the Celta Vigo? Probably not. The culprit of this non-return would be other than Zinédine Zidane. The French coach refuses to take the slightest risk with his best player and should not let him pick up the spikes until next September 10th. On Wednesday morning, Zein sent CR7 to train away from the group with his compatriot Coentrao. Even if he has retouched the ball, Cristiano is not yet ready according to Zidane or rather, that’s what he wants to make believe.


According to Sport, the French world champion fears that Portugal will call Ronaldo for the friendly match against Gibraltar on 1 September, and for the qualifying meeting for the 2018 World Cup against Switzerland. At the same time, the Portuguese managed to win the final of the Euro without CR7 or almost, so it should not be difficult to come to the end of Gibraltar. Well, OK, for Switzerland it might be hotter … On the merengue side, Zidane will be able to count on Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale against the Celta Vigo but not on Benzema who always galley to come back in shape. Do you think Zidane should make it play CR7 from Saturday?
