Ronaldo has only four goals in nine games this season – but Real manager Zidane is not worried
Cristiano Ronaldo should be named the world’s best player ahead of Lionel Messi despite his faltering form for Real Madrid, says Zinedine Zidane.
Ronaldo, 31, is one of the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or after helping Portugal win Euro 2016.
But he has struggled to replicate his previous scoring form for the Spanish club this season, netting just four goals in nine appearances.
“He clearly deserves the Ballon d’Or,” said Real Madrid manager Zidane.
“Not just at an individual level, but above all on a collective level.
“He knows everything he is achieving is thanks to his hard work and the work of those around him.”
Ronaldo, a three-time Ballon d’Or winner, and current holder Messi have been named on a 30-man shortlist for the 2016 award.
