Before the Copa Del Rey clash against Real Zaragoza, Zidane met with journalists. Zinedine Zidane answered many questions and talked about upcoming clashes.
Clash against Real Zaragoza
As you may know, Copa Del Rey has a new format. There is only one match until semi-finals. Atletico Madrid lost that one match against third division, and now they are out of Copa Del Rey. After the changes, Zidane decided to focus on Copa Del Rey seriously. That’s why the French coach called almost the whole squad for the Real Zaragoza trip.
Zinedine Zidane said that he wants to win the match in 90 minutes. It won’t be easy for Real Madrid, but Zizou believes that Los Blancos squad will do everything on the field.
January transfer window
Journalists asked him whether he liked the January transfer window. Zinedine Zidane said that he likes the January transfer windows. Anything could happen until the end of January.
Style of play
Marca’s journalist asked the coach about the style of play. Spanish journalists said that Barcelona has a different style of play now. Zinedine Zidane said that every team could choose any style. Personally, Zidane believes Real Madrid fans and Santiago Bernabeu public does not like 1000 passes per match and only a few shots on target. Zinedine Zidane noted that every team is free to choose the playing style.
Casemiro has no time for rest
French coach said that Casemiro is a critical player currently. Zidane noted that defensive midfielder does everything in every match to keep up with score-line. At the same time, we see that Casemiro scores goals in the last games in La Liga. Zinedine Zidane is very thankful that the Brazilian midfielder is healthy and wants him to continue excellent performance. Los Merengues coach said that Gareth Bale wouldn’t be fit for Real Zaragoza match while Casemiro can play from the start.
