Zidane said: “Everyone says his opinion, for me I always have the best, and the best thing is that I always love it at Real Madrid.”
“The market is open until October 5, in the end we have a lot of players, will we add more? Why?” He added.
“All of my players are very good and I’m really very happy with them,” he continued.
Real Madrid did not include any players during the current summer market, but he sold Ashraf Hakimi, Sergio Regilon, Oscar Rodriguez, Javi Sanchez, Jorge de Frutos, Danny Gomez and Alberto Soro, as well as loaned Takevusa Cubo, Brahim Diaz, Jess Vallejo, Renner and Gareth Bale, and James Rodriguez left him for free.
Zidane touched upon Eden Hazard, saying: “I don’t think he lacks anything, he can talk, but he wants to play.”
“He had a big problem that bothered him for a long time,” he continued.
“The season is very long and he wants to be with his teammates,” he said.
FilGoal.com had investigated whether Hazard suffered a new injury or not, and Real Madrid and the Belgium national team indicated that the player was not injured. (See details)
When asked whether Borja Mayoral and Luka Jovic will leave, he said: “I will not even answer these questions about the departure of one of the players. I will count on all the players who have signed contracts with the first team, then we will see what happens.”
And he continued, “You have to take into account everything, until the fifth of October, the market is open, and we will see what happens.”
“The players are fine and that is what I care about,” he said.
In response to a question about the possibility of joining Wolverhampton striker Raul Jimenez: “I will not answer that either.”
And he added, “We have this team and I do not know what is happening around us.”
“My focus is on working with whoever I have here. We can have discussions about the rest, but to be clear, I don’t know,” he said.
Regarding the criticism directed at him for not including Rodrigo and Vinicius Junior, he said: “These questions make me laugh a lot. This is Madrid. It is easy to say your opinion while I am with the players every day.”
“Will Vinicius play 34% of the games? What about the remaining 32% and the other 31%?”
“That is the reality of this club. There are always those who play more or less. I want to win, and what is out there, whether as newspapers or social media, does not matter.”
“These are all children, all of whom are 21 years old, and that is the reality of football, whether you play or not.”
And he added, “Every game you have to choose 11 players and you do not have to think about it, and I will always choose until it is my turn and leave. I will do what I want until then, I do not know if I have explained my position enough.”
Zidane responded to a question about “complimenting Real Madrid’s VAR technology,” saying: “I am surprised by the criticism of success.”
He continued, “I will not talk about these things, everyone can say his opinion as usual.”
“We can do nothing but focus on our work,” he said.
Real Madrid is preparing to face Valladolid on Wednesday evening in the Spanish League in the fourth round of the competition.
