Cristiano Ronaldo says that his old club Real Madrid have made the right appointment by bringing Zinedine Zidane back to the club.

Due to the ongoing problems, the club did not hesitate to bring their manager Zinedine Zidane back to Santiago Bernabeu. Results have been gradually picked up, winning two out of two in the La Liga, but he is keen to bring in fresh faces to the club to the capital city of Spain.

“It’s not an easy situation because all the players like to play a lot. But he knows how to work intelligently and he manages to involve all the team.”

Besides, these two players there were reports quoting that the club are working on Adrien Rabiot to bring him to Santiago Bernabeu as his contract expires after the conclusion of this season. It will be an interesting summer ahead for the Los Blancos, and Zidane said that the goalkeeping conundrum will be solved before the kick start of the next season.
The Spain international, hails the Frenchman as “unique” and similarly praises his ability to coax the best from his players.
“Zidane’s career speaks for itself, both what he did as a player and what he does as a coach. He found a way to transfer the talent he had as a player to his role as coach and manage a dressing room. He does a fantastic and unique job, and the results are not a coincidence.” said Ramos.
