Real Madrid's head coach Zinedine Zidane

Madrid, (Samajweekly) Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said that the players are eager to play the rest of the matches in the season. LaLiga clubs resumed group training on Monday and Zidane said that the team looks better this week.

“This week has been very good because we have been able to work in small groups,” Zidane told the club’s television channel. “We have been able to do more tactically, physically and technically. The team looks better this week, and next week it will be even better.”

“I’m happy to be back with my players, that’s the most important thing after nearly 60 days,” said Zidane. The 47-year-old French great said that the players trained well at home and were in good shape when they came back for training.

“I like to be back training, but it’s better to be playing,” Zidane said. “The players want to be playing again. They are focused on what’s ahead for us. There are 11 matches left and we are going to be well prepared to finish strong. It will be important to give all we’ve got to be able to win something. It’s part of the club’s DNA, to always try to win.”

Real were two points behind Barcelona at the top of the table when the league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
