Zidane: “I’m not going to stop Bale from anything, he’s older and knows what he does”

“The players take care of themselves and we have the best medical services, we are all in the same boat,” he said of the plague of injuries.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he will not ban “nothing” from Gareth Bale because the players “are older and know what they do” and defended the work of medical services against the plague of injuries of the white team to receive this Saturday (1:00 p.m.) to Espanyol in LaLiga Santander at the Bernabéu

“I am not going to prevent anything from Gareth or any player. They are older and know what they have to do,” Zinedine Zidane said at a press conference alluding to the ban on playing golf for Wales internationals, including Gareth Bale -which has been low in 96 meetings with the merengue club- during the next 2020 Eurocup.

He explained that Bale’s injury occurred in the match against Alavés, and that already on the return trip from Vitoria “he resented discomfort.” “Today he has done a little, but not with us,” he said about the work of Welsh outside the rest of the squad to recover from his edema in the biceps femoris that will take him away from the games against Espanyol and Bruges in the Champions League .

In this sense, Zinedine Zidane said that his players try to “do everything”, such as resting and eating well, because they play every three days. “We have the best medical services, which are above the players and are not happy when there is an injured player. The players know that they are surrounded by the best. We are all in the same boat,” he said.

He also regretted the injury of Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard, who will miss the Classic on December 18 at Camp Nou. “The injury of a player is always screwed because we always want it with us. It is a little more serious than expected, but I hope the cure allows him to return quickly with us. It is an important casualty, but we cannot do anything. There are others. players and that’s what we have to think, “he said.

‘Zizou’ announced that Brazilian striker Vinicius returns to the call to face the ‘parakeet’ team, although he did not give it excessive importance. “It is everyone’s time. He will be with us tomorrow. The important thing is that they are all prepared and then choose eleven,” he said.

In the best moment of the course for Madrid, the French coach was cautious and preferred not to notice. “I don’t wear anything. I am happy to be in the best club in the world. I am fortunate to live this moment in my life, as a former player and now, coach. Every day, even if there are complicated things, it is a gift. I will enjoy until be here. I will always be Real Madrid and that will never change, “he said.

Zidane is “excited” to play the Spanish League against Espanyol, a team that, according to him, “does not deserve to be where he is at the table.” “The Spanish teams are very good. He is going through a bad moment of points, but not of game. We do not play against the last of the table, much less. It will be a very complicated game; if you let him play, he can roll, “he warned.

Therefore, he wants the “best version” of his team in a match in which he will apply some tactical variation due to the loss of important players. “The system is not the least, but the mood is more important. I do not like to always do the same thing because the opponent studies you. All the systems we apply we do thinking about the next game. As I have the best players many things can change, “he explained.

He considered “very important” the final stretch of this 2019, in which they will face Valencia in Mestalla, FC Barcelona in Barcelona and will receive Athletic at the Bernabéu, and said he still does not think about possible reinforcements in the winter market . “Everything can happen. The only thing is that it is not the time. When I arrive we will see. For now, I stay with my players,” he said.
