Ronaldo on why Zinedine Zidane is perfect for Real Madrid.

Zidane is the perfect boss for Los Blanco, according to Juve star.

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has heaped praise on Zinedine Zidane's man-management skills following the Frenchman's return to Los Blancos.

Zidane left Real Madrid last year after leading the LaLiga giants to Champions League glory for the third time on the trot and Ronaldo secured a move from the Santiago Bernabeu to Serie A club Juve.

However, the Frenchman made a surprise return to the Spanish capital last month as he signed a contract up until 2022 after Santiago Solari was relieved of his duties.

And Ronaldo praised the 46-year-old, who has won the World Cup, Champions League, Serie A and LaLiga title during his career as a player. 

"I think Zidane managed the group very intelligently," the Portuguese said in a documentary airing on RMC Sport on Wednesday.

"It's not an easy situation because all players want to play a lot. He did a very smart job, involved all the players and it was very beneficial."

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos also hailed Zidane's management style.

"Zidane's career speaks for itself, both what he did as a player and what he does as a coach," the defender said.

"He found a way to transfer the talent he had as a player to his role as coach and manage a dressing room.

"He does a fantastic and unique job, and the results are not a coincidence."
