Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says getting Ronaldo back is a relief

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says getting Ronaldo back is a relief”

"I hope Sunday is the last game of the season that he is not here".

Ronaldo was dismissed during the first leg of its Supercopa de Espana triumph over Barcelona and received a five-match ban for shoving the referee.

"I don't know how much I'm worth..."

"What interests me is that everyone can play".

Zidane admitted that his side face a slight problem in the absence of Karim Benzema for a period of four to six weeks, leaving the Real boss with only one recognised striker in Borja Mayoral after the club sanctioned the departures in the summer of Álvaro Morata and Mariano. "We can't talk about Cristiano-dependence, I want everyone to be available all the time", added the Frenchman.

He said: "We thought it was unusual that Neymar left Barcelona".

"Cristiano doesn't just contribute goals, he's a leader, he always wants to win and he transmits that to everyone else".

The coach said that the squad was very excited to for the player's return to try to defend its Champions League's title, although the mission would not be easy.

"We can't be happy with the results, especially the last one, but we're not going to change the way we work, just as we didn't past year".

"He was an important player for them and they couldn't hold onto him".

Zidane was critical of his side after their display at the weekend, but said he and his players were relaxed despite drawing back-to-back league games for the first time in a year.

"Real Mallorca signed me when I was a nine-year-old, but it was my parents who decided but every boy has dreams".
