Saturday quote round-up is here. Today, Zidane talks about Cristiano Ronaldo (and Kylian Mbappe, indirectly); while Chris Coleman talks about Gareth Bale’s situation, and how ideal it is for the Welshman.

Zidane, when asked about Ronaldo’s future

"I don't talk about money here. This is an issue for Cristiano and the club, not for me,"

"No, not at all. There has been a lot of talk but no substance. Cristiano is here and he's not going to leave.

"This is his club, his city, his team and I think he's very happy to be here and with everything he's got here.

"I have no doubts when it comes to that."

When asked about potentially bringing in another player before the transfer window closes:

"No, with the team I have and the roster we have at this moment I don't want anyone," he added. "We are ready."

Wales manager, Chris Coleman, says Real Madrid is better for Bale than the Premier League:

"I think from our point of view my opinion is that LaLiga, the tempo and physicality is completely different to the Premier League," said Coleman.

"Technically some of the teams there are absolutely tip top.

"Being selfish, he's better off at Real Madrid. You work all your life to get the top, you don't want to give that up.

"Where do you go from Real Madrid that's better? There's one or two clubs up there but none better.

"He was disappointed to miss the Serbia game but there was nothing we could do about that and of course he's won the Champions League again this year.

"I don't envisage there'll be a problem [for Wales] with Real Madrid, there never has been, they've always been brilliant with us."
