« Cristiano plays between 60 and 70 games a year since I do not know how many seasons. It is necessary for him, but also for the whole team, that he does not play from time to time. He needs to rest and I think he’s even better as well. I’ve talked to him before and there’s no problem, « Zizou said.
The Merengue having abandoned any idea of title in the league, it is indeed wiser that CR7 is saving in anticipation of the Champions League and the eighth final return of C1 where it will (still) wait at the turn by its detractors.
