Zinedine Zidane On Real Madrid Squad: I Just Know The Players

Zinedine Zidane On Real Madrid Squad: I Just Know The Players

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to rule out a potential move to bring long-term target Gareth Bale to Manchester United in the summer.

However, it is believed that Zidane isn't an admirer of Courtois; indeed he dropped the Belgian for his first game back as Real boss and started Keylor Navas instead.

Along with Isco and defender Marcelo, the Costa Rican Navas was one of the main beneficiaries of Zidane's return 10 months after the Frenchman had walked out on the club having won an unprecedented three consecutive Champions League crowns.

It's unlikely that many of this side will be starting games - even playing for Madrid at all - next season, with a squad overhaul on the cards.

Navas has been second choice for most of this season following Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois' arrival from Chelsea, while Sergio Reguilon had condemned a seemingly disinterested Marcelo to the bench towards the end of Santiago Solari's ill-fated tenure.

"Isco and Marcelo are both ready to play, they want to play and we will see them play", he said.

"Nobody here, or anywhere, can take away what these players have done here". But with just 11 matches left to play this season, and no trophies to win, Zidane has opted to use the players he knows well from his previous spell.

Zidane has also made a big call in goal, with Courtois dropping to the bench after a 4-1 comeback win at Real Valladolid last week and Costa Rica global Keylor Navas recalled. That is what I like, and what the players like.

"We did not start the game well, that is normal".
