Everything is happiness at Real Madrid. Los Blancos have started the year with back to back victories at Santiago Bernabéu. In La Liga they thrashed (5-0) Granada with another exhibition of their players.
“This is our best moment since I’m the coach. Every game we play it’s happiness for everybody, for us, the managers, the supporters… But the most important people here are the players, whose work make it possible. Now we have three or four days to rest and prepare a difficult game, in the second leg of Copa del Rey”, said Zidane.
The manager wanted to highlight the first half against Granada: “We were very focused from the beginning, respecting the rival. When you start a game like that, scoring goals, it’s always easier, especially against rivals who defend behind”, Zidane analyzed.
With this victory, Real Madrid are still unbeaten for the 39th game in a row in La Liga, a record in the competition: “We are happy with the run, of course. These are results we want. We want to give a little more in every game and it’s not easy. The run is consequence of the job well done”, Zidane told in press conference after beating Granada.
The team surprised in these two last games with a high pressure: “It’s about the job well done in the week after the holidays, working well and hard. We have to show it always but with a week like a pre-season we could start the year in this way. Now we have to keep showing it”.
Los Blancos could also have another clean sheet against Granada: “It’s very important, not only for the goalkeeper, but for everybody. We are doing great and, besides, it’s good when you have a clean sheet because with all the games we have, like the one against Sevilla, it’s very important. In La Liga not that important, but if we can continue in this way it’s even better”, Zidane commented.
