Ronaldo not worthy of Ballon d'Or, says Filipe Luis

Ronaldo not worthy of Ballon d'Or, says Filipe Luis

Zinedine Zidane has rejected suggestions Real Madrid are dependent on Cristiano Ronaldo following a stuttering start to its defence of La Liga in the Portuguese star's absence.

Apoel are the "Cinderellas" of the group, but the Cypriot side has a wealth of European experience and have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League in the past. "Cristiano hadn't done anything until the last two months [of the season]".

Ronaldo's return boosts Real's attack after a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Levante on Saturday, their second successive home draw which left them trailing early Liga leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad by four points.

Ronaldo was dismissed during the first leg of its Supercopa de Espana triumph over Barcelona and received a five-match ban for shoving the referee.

Marvel and Star Wars films will be Disney streaming exclusives
Iger also narrowed the time frame when the Disney streaming service will launch , saying he expects it will go live in late 2019. Indeed: the "Kids" section of Netflix's service is probably in the biggest danger from this new Disney venture.

"We are not talking about dependency, what I want is to have all players ready and able to play", Zidane said at a press conference prior to Wednesday's match. "We can't talk about Cristiano-dependence, I want everyone to be available all the time", added the Frenchman.

"We can't be happy with the results, especially the last one, but we're not going to change the way we work, just as we didn't previous year. The other players feed off of him". Mentally he's fine, physically he's fine.

The coach said that Ronaldo was focused on the task ahead and was very happy to have the opportunity to play again.

"He's going to play tomorrow, but we're not going to have him on Sunday".
