Zidane: “I Hope We Don’t Make any Changes in the Squad”


Zinedine Zidane was happy after the game against Deportivo La Coruña when the team (0-3) won easily at Riazor. Los Blancos are again leading the table despite not playing with Cristiano Ronaldo as he was banned for pushing the referee in the Spanish Supercup.

The French coach analyzed the game at Riazor: “We are happy for the content of the game, but not about what happened with Sergio [Ramos]. Generally speaking, we’re happy, it’s not an easy ground and it’s a team that can put you in difficulties and they had their chances”, Zizou explained the journalists in press conference.

The second goal scored by Casemiro was a collective play, touching the ball every single player of the team: “We try to play like this and we know we have players to do it. The second goal is what we work for and we’re satisfied”.

The manager also spoke about Casemiro, again one of the best players of the team: “He has these things… He can arrive and when we are in the rivals pitch, he shows it. It’s not his first job, but I’m happy”, Zizou commented.

Nacho was the big news in the line-up and he will have to play against Valencia: “He’s always ready, focused also when he’s not playing. Suddenly, he plays and he does it very well. I’m happy because he doesn’t change”.

The coach also spoke about the transfer market, ending on the 31st of August: “No one has asked me to leave. I want the squad as it is and I hope they don’t make any changes. Until the 31st of August, everything could happen”.

Finally, Zidane didn’t want to talk about Sergio Ramos being sent off at the end of the game: “I didn’t see it. The referee saw a fault and that’s it. I lose a player and I’m not happy”, he finished.
