Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to put all the speculations in the off season behind him, as they prepare to take on Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup.
Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, after he appeared in a Spanish court to deny allegations he avoided paying tax on image rights payments.
Zidane however believes the Portugal captain is fully fit and in the right frame of mind for their game in Skopje on Tuesday.
“There is a lot of noise and a lot of things happening, but he is relaxed,” Zidane told reporters.
“What impresses me the most is that physically he is as fit as the day of the final.
“What interests me in the long run is that he is fit. As for the rest, there is not much we can do about it. The fact he is with us means a lot because it means he is ready to play. We will see whether he plays or not.”
