Before the clash against Celta Vigo, the Real Madrid coach met with the journalists. He talked about the upcoming game in La Liga and Champions League.
Game against Liverpool
The first question was about Real Madrid’s new opponent. As you may know, Real Madrid will face Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s team has had a very bad run in the Premier League. Team lost the last seven games at home stadium in the Premier League. Keep in mind that half of the main squad is not feeling well in Liverpool. Zinedine Zidane said that the Real Madrid squad is ready to face every opponent. French coach noted that the squad wants to test their limits.
Demanding game in Vigo
Zidane said that Celta Vigo is a good team. French coach added that Celta will play attacking football on Saturday evening. Team will play with a very interesting squad. That’s why the Real Madrid coach said that the game will be demanding. Celta is not in a good position in La Liga. Team is still trying to improve and playing against Real Madrid is not a key to success. Zidane noted that the Real Madrid squad played a mid-week game against Atalanta and it was very tough to recover in a short-period of time. Keep in mind that Real Madrid is still third in La Liga. Atletico Madrid is the leader of the table and Barcelona is the second club.
Eden Hazard’ injury
The Real Madrid coach said that Eden will continue recovery. It’s always bad to see players injured. Especially a player that wants to attack more and score goals. Eden Hazard was on top of the competition in London but failed badly in Madrid. Zidane admitted that Eden will continue recovery without operation. Many experts advised Hazard to operate a knee but the medical team is sure to recover in a natural way.
