This is what Zidane's resignation means for Ronaldo

Zinedine Zidane rocked world football on Thursday with the announcement of his resignation as Real Madrid coach, a decision which is likely to have a knock-on effect for several high-profile players.

His departure suddenly leaves Los Blancos facing a period of uncertainty and that could impact a number of players, both at the Santiago Bernabeu and elsewhere.

Madrid’s stars Cristiano Ronaldo cast doubt on his future  at the weekend and all eyes will now be on him to see how Zidane’s decision influences his thoughts.

Ronaldo’s post-Champions League comments hinting at an exit have been perceived by many as him trying to pressure Madrid into helping him out with his tax problems, as they have so far reportedly refused his requests.

With that in mind, the departure of a coach Ronaldo got on with could lead to him surmising it is time to move on as well, unless president Florentino Perez hires a replacement the Portuguese star knows well.
