Zinedine Zidane, coach of the Spanish football giant Real Madrid, stated that he was happy with what he observed in training after a break of nearly 60 days due to the coronavirus epidemic.
“The players worked very well at home, and on their return they were seen to be in shape,” said the French expert.
In mid-March, the Spanish championship was discontinued and the clubs received a green light to begin training in groups of ten players from 18 May.
“This week has been very good because we can work more. In small groups, but we can train more tactically, physically, technically. The team looks better this week and we will be even better in the coming days,” Zidane told for Realmadrid TV.
When the match came to standstill Real Madrid were two points behind first-placed Barcelona, and there are 11 rounds left until the end of the championship.
“I’m happy to be with my players again, it’s the most important thing after almost 60 days,” Zizou said, adding: “The players want to play, they are focused on what awaits us. There are 11 games left and we will prepare to let’s finish the season. You have to think positively because we’re lucky to be back at work.”
