The Frenchman has managed to reverse the team’s recent crisis with four rebound wins, which their prospects in both LaLiga and Champions League appear much brighter.
Zidane is happy that he is at the best club in the world
Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press before the Real Madrid and Eibar clash. Zidane stressed that he was content with his contract, which expires in 2022. The Frenchman has managed to reverse the team’s recent crisis with four rebound wins, which their prospects in both LaLiga and Champions League appear much brighter. “I have nothing in mind, I have a contract until 2022, and I do not ask for anything,” he told the press. “I am lucky to say that I am at the best club in the world and I hope the players stay”. He was asked not only about his future but also about the future of his captain Sergio Ramos. “He looks good because he is convinced that he will continue and this is the most important thing.”
Sergio Ramos is someone, who takes excellent care of himself
“I see him playing football for many years because he is someone who takes excellent care of himself,” Zidane said of Ramos. “If you want to continue and take care of yourself, you have a great chance of continuing for a long time, and I’m not surprised at what he’s doing”. Zidane hopes Eden Hazard will be available after his last dismissal due to injury. “Hopefully he will be back soon he’s almost fully recovered because he lacks match fitness and I hope he’ll be with the team soon,” he said. Vinicius is a doubt about the clash and was unable to train on Saturday. “I don’t think he’ll be able to, because he is not feeling well. I think it is gastroenteritis. He is not comfortable. Let’s see how it develops today,” he said of the Brazilian.
With Isco said to be unhappy with Real Madrid and the January transfer window was approaching, rumours surfaced of a possible swap deal that would see him and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba swap clubs. “I can only tell you about my players, and Isco is fine here. And we have enough thought to just focus on what we are doing,” the Frenchman said.
