Figo: Ron could be replaced

Former Real Madrid and Portugal star Luis Figo believes Zinedine Zidane’s team would still be successful should Cristiano Ronaldo leave.

Figo had a similar career trajectory to Ronaldo, beginning at Sporting Lisbon before eventually joining Madrid and the two briefly played alongside each other at international level.

"I hold the opinion that nobody is indispensable, not just Cristiano Ronaldo," Figo told Gol.

"Clubs can't depend on anybody. The history of these clubs is above everyone, even the president or whoever.

"A lot of things would have to happen for him to leave.

"It is a personal decision and if a person really wants something to happen then it will end up happening, but I see it as unlikely."
