Zidane: We must rest for the Copa del Rey game


Zinedine Zidane spoke after the victory against Málaga at Santiago Bernabéu. Los Blancos did not play a good match but finally they could achieve the victory with two goals of Sergio Ramos. The French manager talked about the game, the injuries, Lucas Vázquez new position and Real Madrid supporters who whistled in certain moments of the match.

The team managed by Zidane suffered to win Málaga at Santiago Bernabéu:”I have good feelings. We had many chances to score more goals but it has been a very difficult game because, the opponent ran a lot and we finished a bit tired. I’m very happy, now we must rest for the match of Copa del Rey against Celta”, Zidane said about today’s game.

Real Madrid are scoring a lot of goals from set pieces and Sergio Ramos scored two today: “I’m happy with the goals from set pieces because is part of our training. I would like to score also from a play but today it was not possible. The important thing is to rest well and think in the Copa del Rey game”, Zidane affirmed.

Danilo did not play today despite Carvajal’s injury and he explained the reason why the Brazilian defender did not enter in the line up:”He had muscular problems and that’s why he did not play. He wanted to play but we prefer not to risk”, the French manager explained about Danilo’s situation.

After Málaga’s first goal, many Real Madrid supporters whistled at the team because they were not happy with the performance of certain players:” We need that our supporters give us serenity, because what we have done so far it has been incredible. We need their help and they have to support us, because in a long season, the players and the coach need affection”, Zidane said about Real Madrid supporters.

Marcelo and Modric could not finish the match because of muscular problems: “We’ll see tomorrow. Luka finished the match with problems but it looks it’s not an important injury, while Marcelo’s injury seems more worrisome”, Zidane said.

With Marcelo’s injury, Lucas Vázquez had to change of position and he played almost all the match in the right back: “He did a great job, but I don’t like this solution because Lucas is not a right back. That’s not his position”, the French manger talked about Lucas position.
