And, speaking ahead of Saturday’s visit of Valencia to Santiago Bernabeu, Zidane was full of praise for Ronaldo.
“And almost 400 goals as a winger… that’s something we can’t forget. It’s an amazing achievement but he’s so good he could play anywhere.”
Zidane has several selection posers to solve before the weekend with Gareth Bale injured and Isco, Marco Asensio, James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata all vying to fill the void.
The Frenchman must also consider the fact Madrid play city rivals Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.
He added: “I don’t have a set idea [on how to replace Bale], there are lots of options.
“I have to look at the opponents for example, how they play, what’s the best option for us but I know I have lots of options because all my players are good and have versatility.”
Zidane offered a fitness update on central defender Pepe, who has not played since suffering a rib injury against Atletico on April 8.
“I don’t know anything about his future,” Zidane said of the 34-year-old, whose contract expires in June. “But there’s a pain in his ribs. He is in better shape and hopefully he’ll be back before the end of the season.”
