After not reaching his usual high levels early in the season, the Portuguese star has now scored 10 times in his past six games.

That run of form has left Zidane pleased as his team, who are fourth in the league, look for a push late in the campaign.

“He’s looking good and we’re thrilled to see him scoring and chasing things down up top,” he said.
