Zidane and Raul

Real Madrid icon Raul has backed former teammate Zinedine Zidane to continue as boss by claiming there is no better man for the Los Blancos hotseat.

Real are 14 points off runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona, who have played a game less, following Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat to Espanyol.

But Raul is adamant the right man is in place to lead the reigning Spanish and European champions.

“(He’s) amazing,” said Raul, who was speaking in his role as a Laureus ambassador.


“He’s two years in front of the team, he won two Champions Leagues, one league, a lot of trophies.








“He’s the best coach for Real Madrid and we want to continue in the future.”

Real Madrid icon Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he would be more than content with his career in the game, if he had to retire now.

The footballing legend, who has won a record-equalling five Ballon d’Ors, has admitted he has no more dreams to achieve following a star-studded life in the game.

Aged 33, Ronaldo is still at the peak of his powers but is content having won five league titles, four Champions Leagues and Euro 2016 among a catalogue of team and individual awards.

“I never dreamed I would win five Ballon d’Or awards. If I had to finish my career now I would do so super happy. I have won everything,” Ronaldo told Brazilian YouTube channel Central Desimpedidos.

“If I win another one, two or three Ballon d’Ors then I will be delighted but if not I already won five.”

Pressed as to whether he had any more dreams in the sport, Ronaldo replied: “Sincerely I don’t think I have any.

“I achieved everything I dreamed of in football. I really think I have achieved so many nice things that I don’t have any more dreams.

“But if you ask me if I want to keep winning of course I do. Obviously I would love to win the World Cup. But if my career ended now I would be very proud. I never thought my career was going to be so nice.”
