- Real Madrid emerged champions of the world after beating Al Ain 4-1 on Saturday, December 22
- A young fan at the stand pleaded for Ronaldo’s return with a banner while another local wanted ex-boss Zinedine Zidane
- Ronaldo joined Serie A champions Juventus last summer while Zidane took a leave from the game
A young fan of Real Madrid held up a banner asking for Cristiano Ronaldo to come back prior to the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018 Semi Final match between Kashima Antlers and Real Madrid.
The young girl's banner read CR7 Come Back with a cute little red love heart neatly placed on the top corner at Sheikh Zayed Sports City Stadium.
And the young girl was not alone, a local Real Madrid fan's banner was a simple plea to both Ronaldo and ex-manager Zinedine Zidane to return back to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Zidane achieved the unbelievable during his tenure as Los BLancos boss, and most worthy of mention was him winning the coveted UEFA Champions League (UCL) title three times in a row.
Ronaldo left Madrid for Juventus and has had an outstanding debut season in the Serie A as he continues to set the pace and new records in Europe.

It is no wonder the young girl was desperate to see Ronaldo back as Soldado's men currently occupy fourth position in La Liga while well placed Juventus sit on top of the log uncontested.
To top that, Ronaldo has scored 11 goals and has five assists in just 17 matches in the Serie A.
Despite Los Blancos being crowned World Champions; which was also thanks to Ronaldo's contribution in their UCL campaign, they are far from the team they were last season.
However, the Spanish La Liga giants did qualify for the final of this year's Club World Cup after defeating Japanese club Kashima 3-1 that same Wednesday evening, December 19.
Gareth Bale was on fire for Real Madrid in this encounter, scoring three goals and thereby becoming the third player to score a Club World Cup hat-trick.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Real Madrid defeated United Arab Emirates club Al Ain FC 4-1 on Saturday, December 22, in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup.
