Fears Cristiano Ronaldo might leave after Zidane resigns

Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid exit

The vibe among Cristiano Ronaldo fans has hit a low today.

On Thursday, three-time UEFA Champions League winning coach Zinedine Zidane announced his decision to step down from his post at the Santiago Bernabeu. This was followed up by an immediate press conference in which the 45-year-old legend revealed he cannot see himself surpassing his own feat, hence choosing to quit on a high.

Cristiano Ronaldo was a major asset in Zidane’s squad, carrying the team even when the BBC — as a trio — seemed to have lost its synergy on the field. The Portuguese number 7 built great moments under the leadership of Zizou. Those include netting crucial goals to earn the club’s first league title since 2012, gunning down Barcelona with an outstanding strike at the Camp Nou in the 2017 Spanish Supercup, scoring the winner in the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup final and amassing as many as 32 UEFA Champions League goals since the Frenchman’s appointment in January 2016.

At 33 and after nine glorious years at the Santiago Bernabeu, Cristiano Ronaldo could logically feel he’s fulfilled his mission of restoring Real Madrid’s pride — a pride that was tainted by Barcelona’s resurgence during the Pep Guardiola era. For fans of the ex-Manchester United winger, this summer could very well be the end of the road for CR7 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Already, right after Los Blancos defeated Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final in Kiev, Cristiano scared Madridistas by talking about his Real Madrid career as a “has been” adventure before making a U-turn during La Decimotercera celebrations in the Spanish capital with a relieving “see you next year” declaration.

Meanwhile, his mother Dolores Aveiro was recently quizzed on her son’s future; a question to which she answered that she’d prefer him to return to Old Trafford rather than make a transfer to PSG or elsewhere. In the midst of the confusion and sadness, the reactions below sum up what has been going on in the heads of Real Madrid supporters:

Cristiano Ronaldo is looking to retire at the age of 41. The question is, will Real Madrid be his last home?

  1. I guarantee it wasn’t Zidane’s decision to leave.
    Florentino Perez Galactico policy is at work here.

    What’s happening to Cristiano is his way of fighting the Galactico policy.
    Cristiano is a Galactico and a Galactico’s time is limited. Perez only hired him as the answer to Barcelona and that’s it. He’ll be spit out of them like the previous Galacticos to make way for another Galactico.

    The club president wants to go back to the Galactico era and we all know that Cristiano is the only one in his way but Cristiano is a fighter and kept finding ways to continue to perform and defying the odds.

    You have to take a step back and try to understand that the relationship between Cristiano and Florentino isn’t great. We have seen just a few years ago Florentino has looked into replacing him many a times. Perez has never even picked up a single player Cristiano had suggested , (nor Figo’s either) and has only gotten rid of all of his friends like James, Pepe, Ozil, Coentrao etc, to put pressure on him.

    This is all my opinion of course this is my version of studying all these events over the years.
