Real Madrid coach Zidane: We also started slowly last season

13 Setiembre 2017

That was their second successive home draw after a 2-2 draw at home to Valencia a fortnight earlier, and another game where Madrid paid for a lack of bite in the opposition penalty area.

"I believe I have been playing very well and this has been replicated by the fans and the club who have shown me a lot of love".

The 21-year-old joined Los Blancos in 2014 in a deal from Real Mallorca, but only made his debut last year following season-long loan stints at the Islanders and Espanyol.

'I started with the first team of Mallorca and Barca appeared'.

Zidane will also be able to recall Keylor Navas, Raphael Varane, Casemiro, Luka Modric, Isco and Gareth Bale after they were all rested from the start against Levante at the weekend. "He is an important player in the squad, he is a leader".

"I am interested in my players and what goes on externally will not change what I want to do". I hope that's the last time this season he's not available.

He added: "We thought it was strange that Neymar left Barcelona".

There was certainly a scare a few months ago regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's future with the club, with the issue resolved quickly. I would have liked him to stay, but you have to understand that he wanted to play more and wanted to leave.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's Champions League opener with APOEL, Zidane said: "In the end, it's true that when you look at the players we had, like Morata and Mariano [Diaz], now when you look, you only see Mayoral. No, not really, because I'm very happy here".
