The Best FIFA Men’s Player 2017 award winner is about to be announced, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar as the three candidates, and Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane gave a rather expected answer when he was asked about it after their 3-0 win over Eibar.
Cristiano is the best player of his generation by far. He makes the difference in key matches and he deserves all the prizes he has won
the Frenchman said, surprising not with his choice (after all, Ronaldo is his player at Madrid), but by adding the words ‘by far’ in his answer, as if considering the Portuguese ‘far better’ than Messi.
Talking about Ronaldo’s failure to score in yet another LaLiga game, Zidane didn’t seem to worry about it.
There’s no need to worry if Cristiano does not score, the important thing is that he has chances. The goals will come back little by little
was the Real Madrid coach’s comment. Last he admitted that the result and some parts of Madrid’s game were positive, but they can definitely do much-much better.
We lacked fluency in this game but the important thing is that we have won and kept the clean sheet. I’m happy with the result, but we can play better. A 3-0 is a good result, we did well in defence but I got the feeling that it wasn’t quite perfect
