Zidane not meddling in Ronaldo renewal

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says Cristiano Ronaldo's contract renewal is a club issue -one that he is not getting involved in it.

Ahead of their La Liga fixture against Espanyol, Zidane who is keen to build on the away wins against Alaves and Borussia Dortmund was asked if there was going to be a renewal of Ronaldo's contract anytime soon following the recent renewal by Isco.

"I am happy that he has [Isco] renewed. He trains with Cristiano [Ronaldo] every day and he is learning from him.

On Ronaldo, Zidane added: "It is a club issue and I'm not getting involved in it."

As for his own contract extension, Zidane stated that there would not be a ceremony to celebrate it, with the coach only focused on the day-to-day tasks he has.

Gareth Bale has not trained since Real Madrid returned from Dortmund in midweek, but Zinedine Zidane still thinks there is a chance the forward could play against Espanyol on Sunday night.
