Zidane: Real Madrid not dependent on returning Ronaldo

Zidane was critical of his side after their display at the weekend, but said he and his players were relaxed despite drawing back-to-back league games for the first time in a year. "With everything that has happened recently he has his head on straight and I'm very happy to see him back on the pitch".
