Zidane: I’m very happy with Benzema’s match


Zinedine Zidane spoke at press conference after the Los Blancos victory against Eibat at Ipurua. Real Madrid played maybe their best first half in all the season, without several important players as Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Kroos and Bale. The French manager spoke about the great performance of his team, Benzema, Modric and Asensio.

Real Madrid played probably their best first half in all the season and this is what the French manager thinks about today’s game:”During the season there are moments that you have to suffer, sometimes you don’t play a good match, but this is normal in a very difficult league as La Liga. Today we played a very complete game from the beginning, with intensity. We did several changes in the line-up and the players who entered did a great game. Eibar are a very good team that are doing a good season”, Zidane said about the today’s match.

Benzema played without Bale and Cristiano in the attack and the French striker was one of the best players on the pitch, after being several weeks without scoring in the regular season:” I’m very happy with Benzema’s game. He played a very complete match scoring two goals. I’m glad with the game he has done”,Zidane affirmed.

Asensio started from the beginning after several weeks and he played a very good match scoring a brilliant goal:” He played a great game. It’s difficult when you don’t habitually play and today he was one of the best players in the team. I think he is very happy with his goal and with the match he played today”, Zidane said about the good match of Marco Asensio.

Eibar supporters applauded Modric when he left the pitch in the second half and this is what Zinedine Zidane thinks about the Croatian player: “It’s not normal when the opponent supporters applaud to a player of your team. Luka is a very important player for us. He is our guide, he knows when to slow down the match or accelerate it”, the French manager said.
