Cristiano Ronaldo snubbed by Zinedine Zidane at Best Fifa Awards

Cristiano Ronaldo snubbed by Zinedine Zidane at Best Fifa Awards”

Bale has been out for a month since suffering a calf injury in the Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund, in which he scored a stunning volley, and he missed Wales' crucial World Cup qualifiers earlier this month, as it missed out on a ticket to Russian Federation.

"I can say that I accept The Best award and it's the fruit of the work we've done so far, with what we won".

'Dani is doing well, ' Zidane added during his press conference.

Other managers including Manchester City's Pep Guardiola, an ex-Barcelona player and coach, have commented on the political situation in Spain, but Zidane told a news conference that he preferred to focus exclusively on the game. "We are going to have security there, as always. But here [with the media] I just like to talk about football".

Zidane was facing the media ahead of Thursday's Copa del Rey round-of-32 first leg at Fuenlabrada.

"Our ambition this year is to win it because we know that we can".

Zidane picked up the best manager gong, while five of his players - Marcelo, Ronaldo, Ramos, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric were named in Team of the Year.

"Bale is already back on the pitch, and close to training with the team, but I can't give you the date", said Zidane, who is confident he'll be able to call on the Welshman for the Champions League game against Tottenham at Wembley on 1 November.
