Zidane takes a long period of time without duel with Real not ideal

Zinedine Zidane will find it not ideal that he is with Real Madrid on Saturday after twelve days without competition game against Osasuna, but the trainer of the ‘Royal’ will also be not too heavy to lift.

Real came on January 29, for the last time in action, when Real Sociedad in competition with 3-0 was defeated. The bekerduel with Celta de Vigo, and a week later was cancelled because of storm.

The 44-year-old Zidane had not seen, he said Friday at the weekly press conference. “Because we always want to play. So many days without a game is long for us, but we respect the choices that have been made.”

“A lot of training is fine if you are in preparation for the season, but halfway through the season, players want to just play matches. We need to focus on what we now have to wait.”

Real wait for a busy period. The season by participating in the world cup for club teams and the cancelled duel with Celta eight matches in 25 days of playing.

“We will see what will happen,” said Zidane. “We don’t even know when the match against Celta will be caught up. For now, we have but not think how many points we could have if we all inhaalduels win.”


Try to Zidane, who as a player in 2002, the game won the Champions League with Real, is also a benefit seen in the long period without a match with his team.

“We have all had time to prepare. Osasuna is always heavy, that was in my time as a player already so. That hasn’t changed,” he says about the opponent, which hekkensluiter is in the Primera Division.

Osasuna-Real Madrid starts on Saturday at 20.45 hours. Real is with 46 points out of nineteen duels is a leader in Spain. Barcelona follows a point behind, but has two games more played.
