Ronaldo salutes Zidane's management as Madrid close on LaLiga crown

Ronaldo salutes Zidane's management as Madrid close on LaLiga crown

Zinedine Zidane is on the brink of his first league title as a coach and Cristiano Ronaldo believes the Frenchman has done very well.
Cristiano Ronaldo saluted Zinedine Zidane for his management of the Authentic Madrid squad this season as they closed to within a point of the LaLiga league designation with a 4-1 win at Celta Vigo.
Madrid engendered a professional exhibit in Galicia on Wednesday and managed to fend off a resilient Celta side, who were rigorously reduced to 10 men in the second half when Iago Aspas was adjudged to have dived in the area.
Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos ultimately culminated Celta off following Aspas' dismissal, but it was Ronaldo who set them peregrinating, scoring twice to efficaciously put Madrid on the brink of their first designation since 2012.
And the Portugal star gave coach Zidane the thumbs up for his efficacious management of a squad which he believes has a good coalescence of youth and experience.

"The boss has managed things very well this year," he told reporters. "We have a very good squad with lots of good young players and others with experience.
"I have been rested a bit more this year in order to be in good shape at the end of the season. It has worked well as this is when things are decided.
"We still have one game to go. We know we have to keep going until the end.
"We are going to Malaga to win the game, that's always our objective. We are Madrid; we must show that we are the best team and that we're champions."
Ronaldo could have scored a hat-trick late on but inexplicably missed the target from close range.
"Such misses aren't normal for me," he said. "But it can happen. Human beings can make mistakes.
"But I am doing well and helping the team with goals at the moment, so I am happy."
