MADRID – Zinedine Zidane slipped before the game that Real Madrid plays against Cádiz the need for rotations to face a strong period of demand.
The game that Real Madrid plays against Cádiz is the first of the 7 that Zidane’s men will play until the next national team break: Cádiz, Shaktar Donetsk, Barcelona, Borussia Monchengladbach, Huesca, Inter Milan and Valencia. Precisely for this reason Zidane asked the environment for patience due to the limited work margin that the team will have and stressed the importance of rotations.
“To win things in a very long season we need rotations. We also have very good players to change. I also want to remind you of what we live here. They (the players) never rest. I tell the fans that there is a block of seven games now. It is necessary to rotate and have everyone. I think you can win like this. The important thing is that the players believe the same and can achieve things. The players don’t stop. At least ours. 14 or 15 play, they go with the national team, they play again, then again with the national team … And so on. We are going to continue along these lines and think that everyone has to be prepared to perform, ”the Real Madrid coach lamented.
That is why Zidane praised Rodrygo Goes. The Brazilian, this year, has started intermittently at the white club, but has been called up by Tité for the Brazilian team. Zidane follows his usual plan with the 19-year-old.
“These players can play in many positions. It is what is important to him. He is a very good player, of the present but also of the future. His preferred position is the right and that is what we are trying to do. He can play on the left or midfielder, but the important thing for him is progress. He knows it and has to go little by little because there are many of us and, when he has to play, he has to be prepared ”.
Zinedine Zidane slipped before the game that Real Madrid plays against Cádiz that Erling Haaland, Norwegian player of Borussia Dortmund “is good”.
“I saw the Norwegian games. Martin (Ødegaard) played a bit differently with a line of four down the middle. I like that they play when they go with their national teams. Haaland? He is not my player, what can I tell you, he is good ”, declared the Madrid coach.
All this framed within the debate of the white front. With the national team break, Real Madrid’s lack of a goal has reappeared. To dispel doubts, Zidane made it clear that he has Jovic because it was his request.
“He is a Real Madrid player. I asked Jovic for it. Everyone can have an opinion, but talking nonsense is more complicated and it is what it is. It is not like that, but nothing happens, ”said Zidane when asked about having a player that Real Madrid put on the market to find a way out.
Zidane recalled that Cádiz “will make it very difficult”, declared his preference to play with the public but “we adapt to what the authorities tell us” and concluded by emphasizing that, despite certain doubts about part of the environment due to his work in the Madrid bench, he is happy and will continue to take advantage of “until the last day what it means to be a coach of this team, enjoying my players and giving 2000% every day.”
