Zinedine Zidane met with journalists before the game against Osasuna. He talked about Real Madrid’s upcoming games and many more things.
Eden Hazard is not ready for 90 minutes performance
Zidane said that Eden Hazard is still recovering from the injury and he needs a slow placement in the main squad. Zinedine said that Eden feels good and knows that he is 100% ready but the medical team has a different opinion. That’s why the management team decided to let him play a few minutes every match-week. With the slow approach, Zidane believes that Hazard can forget his injury issues for good. The coach noted that Hazard will be mentioned in the starting line-up little by little. By far, he does not believe that Hazard is ready for starting against Osasuna but he can play a few minutes.
The midfield of Modric, Kroos and Casemiro
Zineidne noted that they have been playing together for more than 5 years and they know each other very well. French coach is very satisfied with the performance of the midfielders. At the same time, Zidane noted that there are 25 players in the squad and he is proud of them all. Keep in mind that Zidane is after Valverde and other midfielders too. Federico had a little issue at the start of the season due to injury. As of now he is back and can play perfectly. Zidane said that squad members are working harder than ever to compete for the La Liga trophy.
