Pre Match Video
Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid coach
“We are aware of the situation, we are aware of everything. The only thing we have to do is to start the match against Granada strongly. We have to do things different than we did against Betis. That´s it. We know we can´t lose any more points and winning is our only option tomorrow.”
(on their expectations on La Liga)
“We have faith, all of us, especially the players. That´s what they prepare for during the week. They are aware of the situation and they know it´s difficult because we are third in the table. But they are also calm because they know we can still do it and we are going to try until it´s mathematically impossible. We are going to fight until the end.”
(on Ronaldo´s 31st birthday and Zidane having retired at 34)
“Maybe Cristiano can play longer than I did, most probably. It doesn´t mean I didn´t take care of myself, but he takes even better care of himself. Look at him, he´s 31 but physically he´s a beast. I think he can still go on for many more years, I hope it will be here at Real Madrid.”
