Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has hailed his former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane after claiming he developed him even more as a player.
The Portuguese played under Zidane from 2016 to 2018 where he won three consecutive Champions League titles including one La Liga together with the Spanish giants. Ronaldo, who switched to Juve last season for a reported fee of £100million has hailed his former boss.
“Zidane helped me a lot. I already respected him for his career, but working with him made me admire him even more for his way of being, of speaking and for the way he treated me,” he told DAZN, in quotes carried by Marca.
“The confidence that a player needs does not depend almost on him, but on the people around him, other players and the coach.”
“He used to tell me, "Cris, rest, you will make a difference." He was always honest with me and that's why I will always carry him in my heart.”
