Zidane delighted to call on ‘world’s best’ Ronaldo

first_imgMADRID, Spain (Reuters) – Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he was delighted to be able to call on the “best player in the world” in Cristiano Ronaldo, as his side gear up to defend their Club World Cup title.Ronaldo won his fifth Ballon d‘Or, for world player-of-the-year, last week, to draw level with his rival and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.The debate about who is the greater player is a perennial feature of soccer punditry, but Zidane is convinced he has the world’s best at his disposal.“I have the best in the world and he is showing it in this shirt,” Zidane told a news conference in Abu Dhabi yesterday. “I am delighted to have him, for me he is the best.”Madrid face United Arab Emirates league champions Al Jazira on their home soil in the semi-final today, with the final on Saturday.Although Madrid’s next La Liga match is a crucial Clasico clash against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu on December 23, Zidane said his squad is fully focused on the inter-continental tournament.”We will do everything we can to win this competition,“ he said. ”It will not be easy; first we have to get to the final. We’re only thinking about winning the Club World Cup.”There are no easy games. We have a semi-final against, a team that people say is easy, but we don’t think that it will be – quite the opposite.“Look at last year against Kashima (Antlers). Against Real Madrid everybody wants to have a great game and for that we will go out focused.”Madrid won the competition for the first time in 2014 and again last year, when they beat Japanese side Kashima Antlers 4-2 after extra time.The Spanish champions can become the first side to successfully defend the trophy since the tournament began in 2000 and can pull level with arch-rivals and record winners Barcelona on three victories.last_img read more

Tyson Fury says ‘real champion will be crowned’ in rematch with Deontay Wilder, explains trainer switch

first_img“I proved myself the first time and I’m ready to do it again,” the WBC champion said. “It was a very controversial fight. I promise my fans that there won’t be any controversy with this one. I’m going to finish it.”I’m happy and I’m excited that the rematch is finally happening. I want to give the fans what they want to see. I’ve been doing it with my last three outings — Fury, Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. They’ve been spectacular events — from my ring walks where I gather all the energy of the people, to my uniforms that I wear to help spread that energy. “Then I give them what they all come for — the knockouts, and my knockouts have been amazing.” “There’s no more ducking and diving,” Fury told reporters. “The date has been set, and the ‘Bomb Squad’ is about to be securely detonated and the real champion crowned as the world watches on for the most anticipated fight in years.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year”This is unfinished business for me, but come Feb. 22, this dosser will finally get what’s coming to him, and I can’t wait!”Fury also explained his surprising decision to split with longtime trainer Ben Davison in the build-up to the fight, saying their work had gone “stale.” SugarHill Steward will instead train Fury.”We’re going to go back to basics,” Fury said on ESPN’s “College GameDay.””I trained with SugarHill Steward back in 2010, we got on like a house on fire.”I was going a little bit stale, repetitive, doing the same things day in, day out for years. I needed a change.”@ringmagazineNumber 1 – @Tyson_FuryNumber 2 – @BronzeBomberWhen number one and number two in the ratings fight, the Ring Magazine belt is on the line #WilderFury2 pic.twitter.com/T6gDHb2R6c— Frank Warren (@frankwarren_tv) December 27, 2019Wilder insists it is he who will end any doubt over who is the better fighter.
