    Real Madrid: "I will never be a striker "– Ronaldo warns Zidane

    Real Madrid star, Christiano Ronaldo has opposed claims that he's playing as a striker and said that he will never be deployed into that position. 

    Ronaldo has always been used in a wide position, where his pace would allow him cut in on either foot and shoot. But at 32, the Portugal captain has lost of some his pace and operates in central areas.
    It was from the position that he scored twice, as Zinedine Zidane’s men defeated Juventus 4-1 in the Champions League final on Saturday night.
    However, shortly before the game, Ronaldo was keen to point out that he was not playing as a striker.
    “People think I’m front. I will never be front,” Ronaldo said on La Sexta show, ‘Jugones’.
    “I have made almost 600 goals playing in the position I play, why change.
    “It depends on the tactics that the coach puts. I like to play freer, when we play 4-4-2, I like it more.
    “But that does not mean I do not like playing with 4-3-3 because I make other moves and I start from a different position.
