While praising Granada for having a great season, the Real manager said his side will give their best shot in the league match.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was all praise for Granada, but assured that his team remains focused for the important clash. Speaking ahead of the match, the former French player said, “Granada are a very good team with a coach who is doing brilliantly with his team. It’s another difficult game for us tomorrow, but we’re aware of that. We know that we have to be at our best in every game we play, at 100%, from the first minute until the last. The opposition want to play well against us and we’ll try to go out and get the three points.”
With just three games left in the season, Real Madrid are sitting third but have a game in hand. A win against Granada can help them leapfrog Barcelona into the second spot. Zidane has assured that his players will give their maximum to win the La Liga title. “We’ve got three games left. We’re focused on tomorrow’s game first and playing the way we’re playing. The players want to play good football and we’re going to try to do that tomorrow,” he added.
“We’re going to compete and do all we can to win the game. That’s all that matters to us. We’re going to give it our best shot, whatever happens. We don’t know what’s going to happen, but I can tell you that we’re going to give everything out on the pitch to try to win this league. We’ll see how it turns out in the end.”
Zidane’s focus solely remains on the next three games as he is not interested in talking about referees. “Everyone has their job to do and I’m not going to talk about the referees anymore,” he added. “I have faith in football. We’ll do our job and everyone else does theirs. If I say something every time, I’m going to cause a stir for nothing. There are three games left to play and we just have to focus on our jobs, the things that we can control.”
“I’m not going to get into controversial issues. All I’m saying is that things have to be clear for everyone. VAR will always help, it’s something that’s been brought in to improve football. It has been done for that reason and I’m just saying that things have to be made clear on specific situations.”
“If you ask me whether football people should sit down to discuss it and come out and say that it’ll always be seen this way for everyone, I’d say yes. So that everyone is on the same page.”
