Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane believes that it was good that Cristiano Ronaldo acted angrily to being substituted in the 2-2 draw with Las Palmas. 

The Portuguese star was substituted in the 72nd minute and was replaced by Lucas Vasquez with the score at 2-1.

Following the decision to take Ronaldo off, Sergio Araujo grabbed a late equaliser for Las Palmas on September 24.

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S 2016-17 SEASON SO FAR

Appearances - 6

Goals - 3

Assists - 1

Chances created - 6 

Ronaldo was visibly frustrated by Zidane's decision but the latter insists that it shows he was concerned for the team. 

'It's good that Ronaldo was upset when he came off,' Zidane told RMC. 'It shows that the guy is concerned and wants to bring something to the team. But it doesn't matter. I explained it to him, and it's over.

'We play 60 matches these days. In my time, we had that in two years. For me, a player can't play 65 matches in a season at the same level.

'I talk to my players first, I explain it to them. I want to have their opinion.'

Ronaldo hasn't managed to find his goalscoring touch for Real in recent weeks, having scored just once in four games.

Zidane's side, who have won four and drawn three games in the league, currently sit in second place behind rivals Atletico Madrid on goal difference.

After the international break, the Spanish giants face Real Betis away on October 15 and will be hoping to return to winning ways after four draws on the trot in all competitions.
