Real coach Zinedine Zidane is pleased with how his team has performed during the first week of group training.
“This week has been very good because we have been able to work in small groups,” Zidane told the club’s television channel. “We have been able to do more tactically, physically and technically. The team looks better this week, and next week it will be even better.”
“I’m happy to be back with my players, that’s the most important thing after nearly 60 days,” said Zidane, adding that the players “did well training at home” and came back in good shape after the lockdown.
Real are two points behind Barcelona and a dead race is expected by the end.
“I like to be back training, but it’s better to be playing,” Zidane said. “The players want to be playing again. They are focused on what’s ahead for us. There are 11 matches left and we are going to be well prepared to finish strong. It will be important to give all we’ve got to be able to win something. It’s part of the club’s DNA, to always try to win.”
