Zidane: “Trying to win titles is in Real Madrid’s DNA”

23 May 2020

Zinedine Zidane is delighted to be back at Valdebebas and is intent on finishing the season with silverware.

The French coach spoke about Real Madrid‘s return to training which he believes is gradually improving.

“This week has been very good because we can work more in small groups. We can do more tactically, physically and technically,” he told Real Madrid TV.

“The team looks better this week and next week will be much better.”

“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.

It’s been almost seven weeks since Real Madrid‘s defeat to Real Betis which allowed Barcelona to move two points clear at the top of LaLiga Santander but Zidane wants his team to fight for the title.

“We have 11 matches left and we are going to prepare ourselves to finish the season well, strongly,” he said.

“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.

“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 coaches and the players are also happy to be able to train, to be together and enjoy doing what they like to do, which is play football.”
