Ramos: The only one who doesn’t have to run is Ronaldo because he scores 60 goals
Zinedine Zidane and his Real Madrid players held another meeting prior to Friday morning training at Valdebebas, their third over the course of the last two days, with Sergio Ramos reminding his colleagues that everyone should be working extra hard bar Cristiano Ronaldo, who scores enough goals to warrant less running.
It was 35 minutes long and the official version is that much of the talk was based around how Los Blancos will beat Eibar, their rival on Saturday.
The truth is that the session began after 11:30 in the morning and with faces somewhat more serious than usual.
Marcelo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, three of the captains, were the last out on the pitch.
The captain was, once again, in charge of motivating the team, asking them for more effort and to help each other on the pitch.
“Here, the only one who doesn’t have to run is Cristiano, who scores 60 goals,” he said to his colleagues.
Luka Modric was also involved and a few more spoke before agreeing with the captain, who insisted time and again on running, fighting and dignifying the shirt.
There were no reproaches from the group towards Zidane, with whom the understanding remains full.
The first of the trio of meetings took place just after the match against Las Palmas, in the dressing room of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but without all members of the squad present.
Valdebebas hosted the second, moments before Thursday’s training, and with everyone available.
Zidane and his team are looking to recover their lost ground and find the stability that they had exhibited in the previous months of the competition.
