Zinedine Zidane spoke in press conference on Saturday before playing against Betis in La Liga on Sunday. The manager didn’t give any clue about the possible starting eleven and he kept saying that the main goal for Real Madrid this season is winning La Liga titile.

The first important thing to win the title is not losing at home: “We are going to try keep going like this and make a lot of effort to not lose any games. So far, we’re achieving it and we have to keep going like this because we are doing well”, Zidane explained.

After beating Napoli in the Champions League, now the team needs to focus in La Liga: “We cannot play every three days in the same way, with the same intensity. Sometimes things get complicated and it’s normal. We are motivated to win both titles but La Liga ix very important this year and this is what we want. There are games where people could think that we’re not giving a lot of importance to La Liga, but we’re convinced and we know that this is our day to day routine”.

The French manager didn’t want to talk about the amazing comeback of Barcelona against PSG or if the Blaugranas are now more dangerous than before. Zizou also explained that Morata suffered a problem in the training session but he’ll be available tomorrow.

Zidane also spoke about the important players of the squad: “Cristiano Ronaldo and Ramos are the leaders. There are very important for the team. We know the personality of Sergio Ramos and his character and this is very helpful for young people with less experience. Both are leaders in their way”.

The French manager explained that they can also play with 4-4-2 even with the BBC although he prefers to play with three attackers. He also highlighted the importance of Casemiro, although he can be replaced, and Isco or James Rodríguez. Finally, he also made a summary of the season: “We are not doing a bad season but of course we can improve. Now we have to face the complicated situations and, the most important thing, is that we know that we have less time missing and every point is important”, Zidane finished.
