Zidane begins new Madrid era by dropping ‘keeper Courtois

Jose Mourinho says Real Madrid made perfect decision to appoint Zidane

Navas has been second choice for most of this season following Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois' arrival from Chelsea, while Sergio Reguilon had condemned a seemingly disinterested Marcelo to the bench towards the end of Santiago Solari's ill-fated tenure.

After the game, as quoted by Madrid's official website, Zidane said: "Nobody is going to take away what they have done here".

Experienced Marcelo returned to the starting eleven, whilst Bale and Isco were given chance to shine too.

As we all know, Real Madrid is looking for ways by which can they can bolster their squad for the upcoming season, and with Zinedine Zidane at the helm, the Spanish giants seem to have chalked out a plan in going forward.

Encre une fois, les forces de l'ordre ont été visées par des jets de pavés de la part de manifestants masqués et protégés. Il a demandé au préfet de police d'y répondre " avec la plus grande fermeté ". "Ils auraient pu tuer".

"We'd only had three training sessions and now we've got two weeks to work with the players, speak to them and put what we've worked on in training into practice".

"I'll count on them until the end of the season and then we'll see".

Isco was an outcast under Santiago Solari, failing to start a single LaLiga game, but is back in the line-up alongside Bale, who reportedly had a frosty relationship with Zidane in his first period in charge.

Real Madrid are set to revive their interest in David De Gea following Zinedine Zidane's managerial return.

"The feelings are positive".

"We did not start the game well, that is normal".

But now, Zidane is keen for the club to go back in for De Gea, seemingly unconvinced by Courtois, as shown by his decision to drop the Belgian for his first game in charge, though he maintained it was not a final decision and that Courtois would get minutes on the field. The second half much better. "Instead, we all need to give 100 percent".
