Zidane: No One is Coming but Someone Could Leave

Zidane: No One is Coming but Someone Could Leave


Zinedine Zidane spoke in front of the media before the first game of the season at Santiago Bernabéu stadium. The team comes back home after three months because the last game at home was against Valencia on the 8th of May , when Real Madrid won 3-2 to the ‘ché’ side.

The French manager is looking forward to seeing again the fans after lifting to major European trophies: “This is the first game at home, we started La Liga well, in a difficult pitch. Celta is a good rival and we know their quality. The supporters will come to the ground and this is very good for us”.

Celta lost the first game of the season against newly-promoted team Leganés (0-1) at Balaídos. Last year, Real Madrid thrashed (7-1) the Galician team who didn’t perform really good in their last visits to the Spanish capital.

There are still some few days until the end of the summer transfer window and the coach was asked again about the news we might see until the 31st of August: “Everything can happen until the 31st. No one is going to come for sure but someone could leave. The squad nowadays is done and I’m very happy. There are players who haven’t come back yet, the season is going to be difficult and we are going to need all the players”.

Obviously, James Rodríguez is the protagonist again because there are several teams that want to sign him. Besides, it looks like Zidane doesn’t count with the Colombian too much: “It looks like when I’m answering you I want James to leave. He’s a great player, he has a contract signed… It’s true that he has played less but I always want the players to be important and for James is the same”, Zidane finished the press conference.
