Zinedine Zidane 'not getting into' Neymar links to Real Madrid


Ronaldo was forced off at half-time of Sunday's Clasico between Real and Barcelona, which ended 2-2 at the Camp Nou, and Zidane has confirmed the Portuguese sprained his ankle.

Speaking about the 2014 World Cup runners-up, Mourinho said, "I think that without Lionel (Messi), the Argentinian national team wouldn't be in contention".

On Ronaldo, Zidane said, "When what happened with Cristiano Ronaldo happened, and it was something minor, the best we could hope is that the player recovers as soon as possible and that's that".

Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco and Dani Carvajal are all expected to be fit and ready to go against Liverpool, according to Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

However, Zidane has confirmed that Ronaldo is walking again and says he will be '150%' again by the time of the final. "The ankle is stable". "Even if we do not know when he will resume with the team, the fact that he is already there 48 hours after shows his commitment, his desire to always want to play". "We do not know yet if he will be back for Villarreal, but it would be ideal to have everyone ready for that final La Liga game".

At the end of the match, Zidane said, "I can not say how long he will be out, Cristiano does not feel good, but he said it's only a small problem". "But with him nothing is impossible", he told ESPN Brazil.
