Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane talked to the club’s TV channel and reviewed the first week of training for his players. Los Blancos have picked up the pace in recent sessions and Zidane is satisfied with what he’s seen from his players.

“This week has been very good because we can work more, in small groups, but we can do more tactically, physically, technically...Team looks better this week and next week will be much better,” said Zidane.

The French coach explained that the individual work the players did during the lockdown helped them a lot so that they could be ready for what’s going to be an intense month of training camp.

“I’m happy to be working with my players again, it’s the most important thing after 60 days. We are all happy to be back at Valdebebas. We’ve planned a way of working with the fitness trainers and the players are also happy to at least do something at home. They worked very well and that’s why they’re in good shape now they are back, and that’s very important. They are happy to be able to train, to be together and enjoy doing what they like to do, which is play football,” added the coach.

Real Madrid are two points behind Barcelona in the table with 11 games left to be played. It’s clear that Los Blancos will compete for the title. Zidane explained the team’s goals for the remainder of the season.

“I like to train, but I like playing more. They hope to play again. We have to think positively because we are lucky to be back at work, to be here on the pitch and it looks good to me. The players are thinking that now they have to make the most of it, to enjoy it. We have 11 matches left and we are going to prepare ourselves to finish the season well, strongly. In the end the important thing is to give everything to win something. We are here, this is the DNA of the club, trying to win things,” concluded Zidane.
