The value of Thibaut Courtois for Real Madrid’s title push did not lose sight of Zinedine Zidane. The Belgian, who initially fought after arriving from Chelsea, has established himself as an indisputable participant in the starting XI. “He is a crucial player and a big influence,” Zidane said when he asked about his goalkeeper after beating Alaves. “It is a team effort, but Thibaut stops a lot of goals, and we are doing very well.” Zidane’s attention was focused on the party’s defensive efforts, as he made it clear how pleased he was with their work. “It’s impossible to concede goals, he began, “but that’s it’s true that we’re conceding very few. We must continue to do what we do, and we have a very fit Courtois. The team doesn’t concede a lot.”
Real’s last three victories have been aided by penalties being awarded, but the Frenchman does not read too much. “If there is a penalty, then there is a penalty,” he said. “It was a good move. That’s it. The important thing is that we score goals.” The title is now at a touching distance with only five points necessary to roll it, and it can be wrapped up on Monday night. “We are trying,” Zidane continued. “There are three more games ahead, and we don’t know what will happen. Now it’s time to relax, because there is not much time, although it’s better to relax after the victory.” James Rodriguez’s time in the club seems to end, but Zidane gave himself up a little. “I don’t know,” he answered, whether the Colombian would again play for the side.
