Zinedine Zidane says his player will disconnect as they prepare for Champions League next month.
Real Madrid secured their first La Liga title since 2017 and will allow the players to take some time off but the boss insisted that the next few weeks will be very crucial.
“It is not a holiday that we have now,” he said.
“Now, I don’t think about City. We want to disconnect a bit, then we will have all the time to think. We will have 10-15 days to think. We will disconnect.
“Until the last second we are going to fight to go to that final, but now you don’t have to think about the Champions League. It is time to rest and think about gathering strength. The final stretch has been a tremendous effort. Now we all need some relaxation. This is what we are going to do.
“After these four or five days off, we go back and think about the Champions League. No stress or worries.”
Madrid were far from their best against Leganes but Zidane refused to be too critical of his players.
“During the game you can get angry because we didn’t play at our level,” he said. “We didn’t win but we didn’t lose either. In the end I prefer to focus on what we did before today. The season has been spectacular. We have to be happy with what we did.”
Real Madrid travel to the Etihad on August 7 for their second leg tie against Manchester City.
