Lopetegui tells Real Madrid to forget about Zinedine Zidane, gives reasons

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has responded to recent comments from Cristiano Ronaldo suggesting that the mood at Los Blancos was not always as good as it was made out to be.

The Welsh winger's last competitive club outing saw him come off the bench to score twice - including arguably the greatest Champions League final goal of all time - to steer Madrid to the trophy for a third successive season, and he has been promised an even bigger role under new boss Julen Lopetegui.

Luka Modric's agent has opened the door to a potential move to Inter, insisting the Real Madrid midfielder is enthused by the idea of playing for the Serie A side.

"I felt surprised at the beginning", Ronaldo said in an interview with JuventusTV.

Multiple questions from reporters about Ronaldo were pushed aside, while Lopetegui was also not keen to dwell on the team's past success under predecessor Zidane.
