Zinedine Zidane schools Cristiano Ronaldo in Free-Kick Showdown

Newly appointed Zinedine Zidane has taken a different tack in establishing his seniority at the Bernabeu after reportedly “schooling” poster boy Cristiano Ronaldo in a free-kick showdown.

According to Spanish website Sportyou, the former Galactico saw Ronaldo practising his set pieces and said “watch and learn how to take a free-kick” before challenging his star player to a free-kick shootout. Zidane netted “almost all” of his 10 attempts, while Ronaldo converted just twice (h/t Marca).

The report added that Ronaldo responded well to the embarrassment, however, putting his ego to one side and even coming close to offering his boss a piggy-back, despite coming off second-best.
