Zinedine Zidane met with the press on Tuesday night. He talked about the upcoming game at Anfield against Liverpool.
Compete, defend and scored goals
Zidane was very optimistic about the result and game. He said that the team will play on a different level after a big win in La liga. Keep in mind that Los Blancos won the game against Barcelona in La Liga. Real Madrid scored two goals and only conceded one from Barcelona. As of now, Los Blancos is almost the leader of the La Liga table, so it will be an interesting end of the season. Zidane said that team players have a different feeling inside and they want to play at Anfield as soon as possible. Zinedine admitted that Barca and Liverpool ‘wins’ gave them different options on their advantages. French coach believes that the Real Madrid squad is capable of big things and they can win both trophies at the end of the season. Zidane said that Real Madrid has to compete with Klopp’s players at a high level. The only thing that has not to be changed – defending well and creating as many scoring chances as possible.
Valverde and the strategy of Real Madrid
Real Madrid’s coach admitted that Real Madrid players are ready for the game. Journalist asked Zizou about Valverde’s physical options. He said that Fede is fully fit and he can play perfectly against Liverpool. Zidane said that Valverde had problems with the ankle after the game against Barcelona. That’s why he was given two days to rest and now he has recovered fully. Keep in mind that Lucas Vazquez is injured and he can’t help Zidane’s team. Lucas was a key player in the defensive line although Spanish’s profile is not defense. He was replacing Dani Carvajal but after the game against Barca he won’t be able to play against Liverpool. Fede will try best to replace Lucas.
