press conferenceA master league degree looks different! Despite a meager 2-2 at Leganés on matchday 38, Zinédine Zidane is proud of his boys and speaks of a “spectacular season”. Before looking at the Champions League second leg against Manchester City, the Frenchman ordered his stars to take a break, but announced that the royal team would “fight for the last second to get ahead.” Also about the future of the hapless Luka Jović said the real coach.
ZINÉDINE ZIDANE about…
… The missed run of eleven victories from the restart to the end of the season: “Now it’s over. Of course you can get annoyed during the game because we didn’t play at our level. But in the end I keep what we have done so far. The same goes for this game. The result was not a win, but we have not lost either. Now we have to rest. The season was spectacular. We have to be happy with what we have achieved. ”
… The future of Luka Jović: “He is young and talented. This season was a bit complicated for him; mostly because of the injuries. It is important to trust him. We’ll see next year. “
… a possible top class comeback against Manchester City: “How could I not believe in it? Naturally. That’s what we have in mind next, the Champions League second leg. We’ll fight to get through to the last second. But now we have to think about resting. The league final sprint was an effort for all of us. What is coming up is not a vacation, just a short break. However, I don’t think of City right now. We have to switch off now, as I said. When we return, we will have enough time to prepare and think. “
… The possible annoyance that Gareth Bale and James Rodríguez did not reach their performance limit: “No, I don’t think so. So it is, the situations change. You know what happened to James. At Bale it was a technical and tactical decision today, nothing more. ”
… His message to the players for the short break: “I am not afraid that they will relax too much. It wasn’t because of that today. It was a slightly different game. We didn’t make a great game, but that’s not what I’m taking with me today. But: the work we have done so far. We don’t have to think big about today’s game. We had an opponent who was at stake throughout the season. It was a little different for us. But again, we have to thank the players for everything they have done so far. After the short break, we will think of the Champions League without any worries or stress. ”
… His seasonal balance: “There was a lot of discussion throughout the season, but we managed to get an important title. We know the league has 38 games. It’s nice to be at the top at the end. ”
… the last moderate achievements of Eden Hazard: “We will give everything. Especially those who take care of Eden’s physique. He always had complaints after the last few games. But I hope that he will recover after the short break with the possibility of regeneration and return more to the Champions League. “
… The draw against Leganés as a possible setback: “It doesn’t matter too much, it was the end of the season. After the decision in the league, a small drop in performance is normal. We’ll be back greedily. ”
