Real Madrid are hosting Betis on Wednesday night, it’s a game for the fifth game week of LaLiga, but only the first one that Cristiano Ronaldo is available for.
We will not discuss the suspension, we are glad that he is back and I hope that to be the last time we have to do without him
Zinedine Zidane told reporters at a news conference when ‘provoked’ to comment on the five-game ban his Portuguese star received for shoving the referee in the first leg of Spain’s Super Cup against Barcelona, last month.
I see that Cristiano is happy, because what he likes is to play and to be with his team-mates
the Real Madrid coach said when asked about how Ronaldo is doing these days, having played only one game in weeks, the one against APOEL on the opening day of the Champions League group stage.
He’s coming back for a league game at home and we know everyone likes to play in this stadium
Zidane also said, looking rather relieved to have his biggest star back. Real Madrid dropped four points at home against Valencia and Levante, getting stuck to back-to-back draws, playing without Ronaldo.
