Despite the injuries, Zidane has a fit squad that could lead to trophies this season. Zinedine was in trouble when we heard about Modric injury because he could only include three midfielders in the list of the match against Levante.
What’s the primary weapon of Zidane?
Zinedine was back in Madrid last season. French announced a big revolution through the summer transfer window. We all waited for big transfer names, and somehow, Real Madrid fans ended up angry on board decisions.
Real Madrid brought high-class players and spent more than 300 million euros during summer. The biggest star of the summer transfer window was Eden Hazard indeed. Real Madrid was interested in Eden for a few years already, and finally, Zidane’s side could buy Belgian player.
Los Merengues brought Hazard, Jovic, Militao, Mendy and Areola. At the same time, Kubo and Rodrygo were signed for Castilla, but Japanese player went on loan to Mallorca.
There are up to 10 injured players from August.
During the pre-season matches, Real Madrid lost Asensio for the whole season. Spanish youngster got an ACL injury and had to undergo an operation. Asensio will be out for almost the whole season, as he could be back on the field in April. As the experts believe, it will take player 2-3 weeks to adapt to the ball, and indeed he won’t be in form to play this season.
Real Madrid changed the fitness coach in summer. As the rumors say, new fitness coaches exercise players with a rigorous routine. Training is intensive, and players can’t keep up with the strict regime. New fitness coaches believe that those types of training will make all players stronger;
Hopefully, the second half of the season will be successful for Real Madrid because of physical conditions.
