MADRID – Zinedine Zidane publicly vindicated himself before the game against Getafe saying that he does not consider himself a “disaster” as a coach, in addition to not wanting to talk about his future.
“I have flower (luck), yes, but to be in this team and to coach this great club. I do not think I will be a disaster as a coach, nor the best, but I like what I am doing. The important thing is to put passion in everything he likes, especially my players, who are the most important thing ”, declared the coach.
The question, after a season in which Zidane has never publicly spoken about his continuity, was clear. Why don’t you clarify your future? The Frenchman dropped that this is something that is kept for him and for the club saying that “I never look to the future, one does not know anything, and I never spoke about it, not even when you said that Zidane had to be removed.”
Real Madrid will play three points against Getafe on Sunday. One point behind the leader, Atlético de Madrid, Zidane still does not have Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Lucas Vazquez. The case of Dani Carvajal seems to be in its final stretch, since on Saturday morning he already participated in several rounds with the rest of the group. Nacho and Casemiro will rest when they are suspended and it remains to be seen if in the next few hours Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema will overcome their discomfort and arrive on time for the Coliseum game. Regarding Eden Hazard, who has spent days training with the rest of his teammates, Zidane revealed that “he is fine and wants to return with the team”, so he has options to enter the squad list.
The Whites are strong after eliminating Liverpool in a two-game match in the Champions League and after beating Barcelona in the Clásico: “We are happy with the team and I, as a coach, very happy. We have ten games in 30 days and we have to compete. We are happy to be alive in all competitions “, stressed the Madrid coach.
Precisely in the last week Militao was one of the most outstanding players. Zidane took the opportunity to underline the work and commitment of his central defense.
“He is committed and he played well. It is normal that everyone wants to play more. He has done well and we have to continue, him and everyone. He’s ready and that’s the most important thing. “
Regarding the accumulated fatigue of his team, Zidane insisted that there is still a lot left and that the team has a lot to row.
“We have ten games to go. We have all the players but I think those who came out did well. We have not won anything and that is the reality too, “concluded Zidane.
