It is ridiculous that Mayoral is Benzema’s back-up – Schuster


Former Real Madrid manager Bernard Schuster has criticised Los Blancos squad, which he considers to be “unbalanced.”

In an interview with Spanish radio station Onda Cero, the German coach said: “Real Madrid need a team of starters. The squad is unbalanced. I think it is ridiculous that Mayoral plays if Benzema is injured and that Danilo plays at left-back if Marcelo is injured.”

Schuster believes the squad should have been better planned in order to avoid these type of unusual situations that have contributed to Los Blancos failure in La Liga.

Speaking of Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant goals against Celta Vigo, Schuster praised the new manager: “I expected Zidane would be able to explain Ronaldo which is the best way to shoot the free-kicks. His ‘folha-seca’ is widely known across the world. Now, he is seeking a more controlled and less powerful shot.”

Schuster also praised the Portuguese for his good performance: “He is a goal scorer. Goalscorers don’t play good games. Like Raul or Hugo Sanchez, goalscorers score goals. Period.”
