Real Madrids Defender Manu Hernando In Action During The Uefa Youth Picture Id625071362?s=28

Manu Hernando was reportedly axed from the Real Madrid first team training session after flooring Cristiano Ronaldo when the Portuguese was still at the Santiago Bernabeu. 

This incident according to Marca happened two years ago and the Spanish footballer has not been called to training since he made Ronaldo fall on the ground.

 Last two seasons, Real Madrid were having smooth runs in the Champions League even though their performances in the La Liga were not impressive. 

Then Zinedine Zidane decided to split the team into two sides for training in Valdebebas in their quest to win the Champions League which they eventually won. 

And during the training, Cristiano Ronaldo and Manu Hernando went for a loose ball in which the Spaniard made a bad challenge against the Portuguese. 

Cristiano Ronaldo was said to be very livid with the challenge when he fell on the ground and Manu Hernando tender an apology immediately and the training continued. 

But Zinedine Zidane was not pleased with such tackle and axed Manu Hernando from the first team as he refused to call him up for training again since then. 

Real Madrid went on to win the Champions League beating Liverpool in the final in which Cristiano Ronaldo then left the side after spending nine years at the club. 

Manu Hernando on the other hand was loaned to Racing Santander in January this year where he has been getting regular playing time. 

Meanwhile, his contract at Real Madrid will expire next summer and Racing Santander are planning to sign him permanently.
