Zidane: Real Madrid contract means nothing after draw


Zinedine Zidane has defended Real Madrid's form but admits his contract offers no guarantees for his long-term future at the club. "We had two spectacular years and people should not forget that". It's not a physical thing, or more in our heads. "I am satisfied across the two games, and the players are too". We put in a good performance but we were lacking a bit of gas in the tank towards the end.

"Real Madrid is Real Madrid, so I will never fight against the club or against the fans because they are very important or against the President who brought me here". In turn, should they offer BBC + Keylor Navas to Manchester United in exchange for David de Gea? The second half was not good, but we're not going to go insane about it. It was tough for the players who get less game time but I'm pleased with how they performed. Unfortunately, we probably won't be seeing too much of the Spanish midfielder during the second half of the season as Zidane simply does not trust him enough.

Real's most obvious issue this season has been the lack of a consistent goal threat.

Zinedine Zidane's ability to manage the tempestuous Santiago Bernabeu dressing room has always been seen as one of his main strengths but with Real Madrid struggling, his good relations with his "galacticos" is starting to look like a liability.

The likely manifestation of that creative thinking is flexibility on the rules of origin proposals put forward by the Americans. A withdrawal notice doesn't mean NAFTA would be killed - a country can give notice and then not actually leave.

"If you say that then you don't know me at all".

However, only full-back Theo Hernandez and midfielder Dani Ceballos were brought in from Atletico Madrid and Real Betis respectively, but both have failed to impress so far.

His side will continue their defence of the Champions League against a French team coached by a Spaniard when Real take on Unai Emery's Paris Saint-Germain in the first knockout round on 14 February and 6 March.

Last season Madrid won the league as well as the Champions League, but the key to that triumph was the depth in their squad hence proper rotation resting players for key fixtures in Europe.
