Coach Fernando Santos too wants his star man to enjoy his rest period before getting down to business in the World Cup, where Portugal have been drawn alongside Spain, Morocco and Iran.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is on holiday,” Santos said.

“I won’t bother Cristiano by calling him, after a spell where he’s put in so much effort and is tired. I don’t have to talk with Cristiano.

“Hopefully he can have a great holiday and he can come back in good condition. That’s the important thing.”

Cristiano Ronaldo has lauded departing boss Zinedine Zidane after the Frenchman called time on his trophy-laden stint at the Bernabeu.

Just days after securing an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League trophy, Zizou on Thursday announced his resignation, citing the fact that he felt a change was needed after two and a half successful years.
