- Cristiano Ronaldo has been saluted by Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane
- The Frenchman believes that Ronaldo can never be replaced at Real Madrid
- Ronaldo spent nine years at Real Madrid scoring 450 goals in 438 games
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has admitted that Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo can never be replaced at the Spanish club.
Last summer after winning three Champions League title, Ronaldo made the move to Italian club Juventus.
And since his departure at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid chiefs have been looking for a good replacement for the ex Manchester United star.
Los Blancos' poor performance this season also paved way for the return of Zinedine Zidane who is now planning for next season as Real Madrid have lost out in all competitions.
Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane and Eden Hazard had all been mooted for moves to Real Madrid since Ronaldo left the club.
Zidane has now admitted that nobody who Real Madrid sign will ever be able to replicate Ronaldo’s achievements.
"Cristiano's situation is one that we can't change, he's gone. We can sign any player and whoever comes in won't do all that Cristiano did.
“That's the way things go in life, he did some great things at this club and we were delighted with him.
“He's now in another chapter in his career and I'm tired of repeating myself because we're not going to win anything at the end of this season but we are going to try and finish strongly,'' Zidane explained according to Daily Star UK.
Cristiano Ronaldo spent nine years at Real Madrid scoring a phenomenal 450 goals in 438 games.
