The Reason Why Cristiano Ronaldo Doesn't Want Old Trafford Return

14 February, 2018, 19:34 | Author: Hannah Francis

The Uruguayan and his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates face a stern test of their European credentials in the last-16 first leg against double defending champions Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Real will be looking to go deep in the Champions League, as they are now 17 points adrift of La Liga table toppers Barcelona and are out of the Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid will host Paris St Germain on Wednesday night in a Champions League clash dripping with superstars and intrigue.

"They are a great team regardless of the circumstances, but they always perform at their best in this competition - it's totally different from league competition". "When things don't well you learn a lot".

The Real Madrid hitman has hit seven goals in his last four outings but has struggled as Los Blancos have had a hard season. Whatever the outward projections, Zidane knows a victory over the in-form PSG would go a long way to securing at least a stay of execution in the Real hotseat. "This tie between Real Madrid and PSG", Ronaldo said, "is one that could define the whole season".




Midfielder Emre Can is suspended for the tie, defender Joe Gomez has travelled with the squad after missing the last two matches with a knee injury while £75m record-signing Virgil van Dijk is set for his first appearance in the competition for the club. Emery is playing for his future at the moment; PSG have a shortlist of managers to aim for next season, with Luis Enrique one of them, but Emery is confident he can take this team to the next level.

He has carried on his love affair with the Champions League as a coach, from his role as assistant to Carlo Ancelotti in Real's 2014 triumph to leading Madrid to glory himself in the last two seasons. It will be a very important game.

Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid coach, was France's hero when Les Bleus won the FIFA World Cup in 1998. Reports have also mentioned a swap that would send Ronaldo plus cash to PSG and Neymar to Real Madrid.

Ahmed believes that Real Madrid should count on their attacking line to break the Parisian defense; he said, "we should start the game with Ronaldo, (Karim) Benzema and (Gareth) Bale".

Although he may have endured his struggles in Spain, the 33-year-old has been electric on the continent this season, scoring nine goals before Christmas to become the first player to find the net in every Champions League group game as Madrid seek a third successive triumph in the competition.
