Zidane: I’m the responsible of the draw at Warsaw


After the draw of Los Blancos at Warsaw, Zinedine Zidane spoke in the press conference the day before Real Madrid will play against Leganés. We saw the French manager very optimistic despite the critics he received this week after the poor match Real Madrid played at Warsaw. Zidane highlighted the match at Warsaw, the recovery of Modric, the injury of Benzema and his opinion about Leganés.

Zinedine Zidane received many critics because of the game of Champions League of this week against Warsaw and he said who is the responsible of that match: “I’m the responsible of the draw at Warsaw. When things go well, there is a small part of me, and if things go wrong I am responsible and I assume. There are going to be critics every time the team doesn’t answer, the only thing I want is to forget this match”, Zidane said about the match of Warsaw.

Modric will return after being several weeks out of the team and Zidane confirmed his presence in the list for the match of tomorrow: “He is included in the list. The idea is that Modric can have a few minutes. We will see. The important thing is that he is fine and he has fully recovered”, Zidane explained.

A player that is not in the list to play against Leganés is Benzema. The French striker has hamstring problems and Zidane decided not to take any risks and give him a rest: “He will not play tomorrow. After the match at Warsaw he felt something in his hamstring. We don’t know exactly what he has. We are not going to risk with a player who has muscular problems”, Zidane said about Benzema´s injury.

Los Blancos will play against a team that debut in the Spanish first division. Leganés are not in a good moment and Real Madrid must achieve a good result to recover sensations:”We know that tomorrow we have a difficult game. When they play as visitors, Leganés are quite dangerous. We must be concentrated and we have to prepare well the match. We want to make a good game”, Zidane explained.
