Zinedine Zidane says a fully fit Cristiano Ronaldo "lives to play these games" as Real Madrid prepare to take on Liverpool in the Champions League final.
The Portuguese superstar suffered an injury in the 2-2 Clasico draw with Barcelona on May 6, before making a goalscoring return to action and completing 62 minutes from kick-off in Madrid's final LaLiga match of the season at Villarreal last weekend.
And while the Frenchman revised that estimate slightly during a news conference at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Ronaldo remains a certain starter against Liverpool.
"He's in good shape. If he's 140 per cent then that's good enough," Zidane said.
"This is the last training session before the biggest game of the season. One thing you have to know is Ronaldo lives to play these games, so we'll see tomorrow."
"The players are all very good and there are many players who will be out of the squad or on the bench but we have to think of the team," Zidane said.
"A player can be disappointed but when the game starts that player has to be with the team to support the team. We are united. This will always happen. From the bench they can also bring a lot to the team and that's important.
"I've said it many times, it's the most difficult time for a manager when you have to leave out players, particularly for a final, when some are good enough to play. That is the most difficult part of being a coach but I've got to do it."
