Cristiano Ronaldo was back amongst the goals on Sunday afternoon, scoring a brace as Real Madrid came from behind to beat Deportivo La Coruna 7-1.

The 32-year-old forward - who had failed to find the net in each of his last three league outings - took his tally in La Liga to six goals for the season.

According to reports, Ronaldo could leave the Santiago Bernabeu over a contract dispute and has been linked with a summer return to Manchester United.

However, Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane claimed he "does not see a Madrid without Cristiano".

"We know what is discussed, but what Cristiano has to do is think about playing, as always," the Frenchman told a press conference, according to the Madrid website. "I just want to talk about his performance and what he can bring to the team on the pitch.

"Cristiano is a part of this club, where he belongs. The club, the fans, everyone loves him.

"I always say the same thing, I do not see a Madrid without Cristiano.


"The sporting side is the one that I am interested in. I do not want to talk about the contract and those things."

What Ronaldo did after being kicked in the head

Desperate to return to goalscoring form, Ronaldo made it 5-1 in the 78th minute and scored his second with a brave header just six minutes later.

However, he was booted in the head by a Deportivo defender and suffered a serious cut - with blood pouring onto his shirt.

Fans couldn't believe what happened whilst the Real Madrid team doctor treated him.

Only Ronaldo could get away with whipping out a phone to check himself out. 

It didn't appear to be a concussion so the five time Ballon d'Or winner should be available for next weekend's huge clash away at Valencia.

Real Madrid are five points behind third placed Valencia but have a game in hand.
