Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he is “happy” for Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema after the pair netted braces in the 6-0 win over APOEL yesterday night
Ronaldo and Benzema have come in for criticism this season, with Ronaldo having scored just one goal in five matches and Benzema not netting in half-a-dozen outings before the triumph in their Champions League fixture in Cyprus.
Zinedine Zidane is quoted by MARCA: “I am happy for them and they will keep working now. We knew that this was going to happen, that the goals would come. You need to keep working, we know they are two very good players and now we need to focus on the next game.
“We are calm, we have had some bad moments but we will also have some good ones. We are on a good run as recently we have been doing things well. It is not easy to score six goals against any team and it is not right to say that it is because you are against a weak side.”
