REAL Fans turn on Ronaldo

REAL Fans turn on Ronaldo

Zinedine Zidane has dismissed any suggestion that Real Madrid's stuttering form could lead to him stepping down as coach, declaring: "I'll never throw in the towel".

Real Madrid host struggling Deportivo La Coruna in the Santiago Bernabeu needing to end a run of two consecutive home defeats in the league in the wake of last weekend's upset against Villarreal, reports Xinhua news agency.

"We will find positive things". I'm going to continue fighting as I've always shown and I'm not going to quit ever'.

Zidane said his "BBC" strike force of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema were fit to play, though he did not reveal if he would field the trio, who have not started a game together since facing Barcelona in April past year.

The much-vaunted "BBC" strikeforce have rarely been available at the same time over the last 10 months due to injuries and suspension, but they could be unleashed against Deportivo. "He is a great player", said Zidane.

That game is also remembered for Bale limping off in the 39th minute and, despite clearly being unfit to play, was handed a start by Zidane, who was keen to field Los Blancos' front three.

Zidane, meanwhile, played down media speculation linking Madrid with another of the game's top forwards - PSG ace Neymar.

"I can't imagine a Madrid without Cristiano", said the Frenchman, a World Cup victor as a player.

That left them a mammoth 19 points behind eternal rivals Barcelona. They are one of the best teams.

However, given Ronaldo made his name at United and helped them win three Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League during his six seasons at the club, most Red Devils fans would likely welcome him back with open arms.
