Ahead of the FIFA Best award in London on Monday, 23rd October, Real Madrid Coach, Zinedine Zidane, has expressed that even though Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has scored just one La Liga goal this season, he deserves to retain the FIFA Best Men’s Player award.
Zidane said this after Real Madrid’s 3-0 home victory against Eibar on Sunday evening, even though Cristiano Ronaldo refused to contribute a goal in the win.
Zidane said “Ronaldo is the best Player of his generation, by a long way. He has shown that many times. He makes the difference in the big games.
“It is very deserved that he is winning tomorrow. All his prizes are deserved. He always shows he wants to be the best, and he is.
“When Cristiano does not score, I get asked always the same thing. We are not worried, although it is better when he scores. It is important for him, but the most important is that he is getting chances.
This lasts a long time. He is top scorer in the Champions’ League, and has a chance to score again next week in La Liga (at Girona),” he added.
