Zinedine Zidane: Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo Is Not A Violent Player

Everyone is sharing their opinion about Cristiano Ronaldo’s elbow incident which saw him pick up a straight red card.

Now French legend and former Real Madrid player, Zinedine Zidane, avowed his own judgment.

He said about the tackle:

“I saw the play on telly and yes, it’s ugly.”

He continued by clearing Cristiano Ronaldo’s image which has been even more tarnished through this elbow incident:

“He didn’t deliberately attack him [Mtiliga]. Cristiano isn’t a violent player, surely not.

“What happened really hurts; they are actions that I don’t like to see. But you can’t say that he is a violent player.

“He scored two good goals and I’m sure he’s not happy by his dismissal.”

In the final of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Zinedine Zidane head butted Italy’s Marco Materazzi and was therefore given his marching orders.

The French legend ended his international career with a red card but he received the support of millions around the world who understood that Zidane reacted by provocation.

In Cristiano Ronaldo’s case, the majority of the public is against the Portugal and Real Madrid superstar.
