Florentino Perez spoke at Real Madrid's general assembly and told those listening that Ronaldo is everything that the club stands for; talent and ambition. The Portuguese is currently angling for a new deal at the club and Zinedine Zidane says it is an issue the president and his star player must sort out between them but Perez gushed about the reigning Balon d'Or winner.
Perez said, "We've done it all with the best coach in the world, who is a symbol of madridismo, Zinedine Zidane. He represents exactly what Real Madrid is. He is as determined as a manager as he was as a player, with his ability and professionalism. This is a group of unique players who are destined to mark an unforgettable era at the club."
"We also have to be proud to have the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo. Four Balon d'Ors and on the way to a fifth, four Golden Boots, the first winner of The Best and on his way to the second. He is the top goalscorer in the history of Real Madrid. He is the best example of Madridista DNA: talent and ambition," he continued.
