Zinedine Zidane is not going to give his opinion about European Super League
Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane doesn’t want to get involved in a conversation about the European Super League. Instead, the Frenchman clarified that this issue would be addressed by the club’s president, Florentino Perez. “That is a question for one person: the president,” Zidane said during a pre-match press conference on Tuesday when asked about the European Super League. “I’m here to talk about the game, not other things. The rest is not my business. Another journalist tried to get something out of Zidane regarding the European Super League proposal, but he stood firm. “I’m not going to give you my opinion,” he said. “Maybe you say that I do not get involved, and it is true because what I like to do is coach.”
Real Madrid will compete until the last day
Some argue that Real Madrid’s thoughts are already starting to turn towards the club’s first Champions League semi-final match against Chelsea at Valdebebas next Tuesday, but that does not seem to be happening. “I disagree. We’ve been here for eight months, and everything has happened,” commented Zidane. “I was on the verge of the sack, and the players were worthless… And that’s never the case. What matters is that we are alive. We compete what we like, and we will compete until the last day. Whatever happens, we will compete until the last day. I don’t know if we will win, but we will give everything that we have. We are excited about the competition. I was talking about the physical limit, and now you are, but we can always go further.”
Zidane was asked about any possible unexpected absentee ahead of Wednesday’s match against Cadiz at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza. “There will be no Eden Hazard, and there won’t be Toni Kroos,” he replied. Speaking about Hazard, it is clear that Real Madrid are spending time with the Belgian striker. “If Hazard is not here, he is not at 100 per cent,” Zidane stressed. “The important thing is that when he comes back, he’s 100 per cent. Eden doesn’t feel right, and we have to be very careful. He won’t be there tomorrow.”
