Zidane: Ronaldo ready to face United despite long rest

UEFA Best Players 2017

If the temperature exceeds 32 degrees Celsius at kick-off at the Philip II Arena, UEFA will sanction water breaks on 30 and 60 minutes.

The Spaniard was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in 2015 as Real Madrid chased goalkeeper David De Gea. You know, lots of matches, you travel, the motivation is not so high because the Europa League is not the El Dorado for the football players.

Cristiano Ronaldo will try to deliver more European glory to Real Madrid when they take on his old club Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup this week.

Despite struggling in pre-season, the defensive suspensions could see Victor Lindelof handed a start unless Mourinho opts to bring Daley Blind back into the middle alongside Chris Smalling in a repeat of the pairing that started the Europa League final in May.

"I knew the weather was like this". "That's obvious, but also obvious is the difference between the Champions League winner and Europa League winner".

"We have to enjoy this moment", he insisted.

He added: "I think the team is feeling well". It's something I've been through many times. Yes, he has. The one against Real Madrid, if I am real, it's the one that would concern me...

"In England, I never had these problems, that's why I want to go back there".

"It's going to be a tough match".

Ronaldo was expected to remain in Madrid after joining up late with the squad but Zidane, who on Tuesday will target a sixth trophy as Real coach, said the prolific Portuguese forward had every chance of playing against his former side United.

April 2011 and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is tasked with stopping Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Barcelona side in the Copa del Rey final in Valencia.

"Juan Mata and Ander Herrera were the only players who picked up injuries during Tour 2017, presented by Aon, but both of the Spain internationals are now back in action. We are working hard to get to the 8th and be able to compete against Manchester United in order to lift the Super Cup".

It's important to consider the variables. Skeptics however have point to Ronaldo's reportedly poor relationship with Mourinho.
