Cristiano Ronaldo appears to IGNORE Zinedine Zidane’s orders at Real Madrid training | Football | Sport


Real Madrid returned from their winter break with an open training session in front of thousands of supporters.

At the beginning of the event Zinedine Zidane had all of his players rounded in a circle as they discussed the plan of action.

But Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to grow increasingly frustrated with being stood around and instead broke rank to call his team-mates for a jog around the pitch.

The supporters were also waiting for the session to get underway to Ronaldo was appeasing those who turned out in their numbers.

All of the Real players then completed a warm-up lap while being cheers on by the watching brief.

However, one player was evidently absent from the first day back after Christmas.

Forward Karim Benzema was not involved in the open day and a club statement later confirmed he has suffered a thigh injury.

Early reports suggest the Frenchman could be sidelined for up to three weeks.

Real return to action against Numancia in the Copa del Rey on Thursday (8pm).

They will then look to close the 14-point gap to La Liga leaders Barcelona when they entertain Celta Vigo on Sunday, January 7 (7.45pm).
