"There are many things to explain our streak, but I highlight the work and confidence in what we are doing," the coach added.

Zinedine Zidane appeared in the press room of the Ciudad Real Madrid the day before the derby. The white coach analyzed the meeting of the 22nd day of League against Atlético, which will be played in the Santiago Bernabeu (16:00 h; Movistar LaLiga): “It's a special game because it's a derby and we like to play with our fans. They always try to support us throughout the game. We want our fans behind us and I think it's going to happen tomorrow. The 25 players are concentrated and that's the important thing. ”

“The preseason game was like that and we no longer watch it, nor does the game Spain Supercup. Tomorrow is a different game. We know it will be complicated and so will they. I hope to see a great football match. Do not compare a match with another. There's nothing to see. We want to win all the matches and we have not won Atlético in the Bernabeu in League Since 2012 it means that we have the opportunity to change this dynamic. At home we have won them. ”

The unbeaten 20-game streak

“I can highlight work and trust, believe in what we are doing. The word is work, with that you get good things. Tomorrow we have to show again what we are doing well. Nothing else. We work very well and I have a very good staff. I am sure we will have complicated matches, but the key is everyone's job. The first thing is to defend well and then with our quality we can do good things offensively. It must be demonstrated every three days. That is the complicated thing. ”

Your template

“We are 25 players and they are all very well. Then I choose. The good thing about our team is that everyone is involved and when they play they try to do well and give everything in the field. That is the most important thing for me. I can only choose 18 and some will stay out at home. That is the complicated thing for the coach. ”

It is a special game because it is a derby and we like to play it with our fans.

“The important thing is that everyone is focused and focused. I will not tell you who will play tomorrow. The players have to be prepared and everyone is ready. I have the best and everyone is important. There are many games and the good thing is that the players know it. ”

Is it the best template you have trained?

“When I played in the Real Madrid They asked me about the same. The important thing is that here it has always been like this and the Real Madrid He has always had the best players. Each stage is different. ”


“I have known him for a long time because I see the French League. He is very competitive and hungry. He likes to compete, he likes duels and he is demonstrating it. He has just arrived and knows that little by little he is soaking up what is the Real Madrid. He wants to learn and improve and has adapted quickly. I always tell him that he has to improve his Spanish. ”

Hazard's recovery

“He is slowly entering with us. The good thing is that everyone wants to be and that is the most important thing. We will never risk with a player. ”


“He is with us and I will count on him. I do not contemplate the possibility of his departure. We are all here to play tomorrow and you have to be prepared. ”

Brahim and Mariano

"I have a template and I will count on the people who are here until the end."

The criticisms of Simeone

“I don't understand them, but it doesn't depend on us. Everyone knows their situation and I know that Cholo is one of the best coaches. Recently I said that for me the best is Guardiola. He has always shown it and nothing changes what I think of him. We all know what the coach's situation is, especially in large teams. ”
