Zinedine Zidane joined Ronald Koeman's complaints about the league schedule this season. The French regretted that there is so little time to train and recover between matches, just like the Dutchman did.

Calendar of FC Barcelona

"Especially for the big is a very tightened calendar. It is not well play three parties with the selection, in place of two. I have been seleccionador and never have risked with a player. It thought also in the club". East was the start of the speech with which Ronald Koeman showed his disconformidad with the calendar 'non stop' that there is this season between all the competitions of clubs and the stops of selection.

But the Dutch did not remain here and also loaded against LaLiga by the schedules that is putting him to the FC Barcelona this campaign. "Neither I understand that all the parties out of house have played them to the 21.00 hours. I do not understand it. It is not a help to a big team that has to struggle and play each three days. I understand that an Athletic- Barça can be to the 21.00 hours, but no all the parties. It is necessary to think more in this sense because we go badly", commented.

The 'rajada' of Koeman by the calendar and the schedules is more than comprehensible and has not been the only that has seen this Friday. In fact, hours after his incendiary press conference, his homónimo in the Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane, has done something very alike. The French also has complained by the calendar and has left clear that it is a global problem that is prejudicing to all the players in terms of health.

"It is something for all the trainers... We have had a meeting with the trainers. To try change something. I have spoken to say my feelings, what think, what have inside. It is people that is qualified to see what can do. I think in the health and also refer me to what is the football. Playing a lot of parties the health resiente, and besides is important that play well. For this is necessary that the footballers can rest to give a good show", commented the marsellés.

The French continued his speech and regretted by the fault of time that have the teams to recover between party and party. "The calendar is the one who is, but are not only the trainings, the recovery is very important and do not have ". Nevertheless, the technician recognised that it can not do at all, although it left clear that needed desfogarse. "But it is the reality. Have to hold us what is. The situation is this and go to fulfil. But I wanted to speak today of this, do it and already is", affirmed.

Zidane regretted also the injuries of the Madrid

Also it regretted the trainer the problems that is having with the injuries, since for Villarreal will not be able to have Karim Benzema, Sergio Bouquets, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Luka Jovic and Éder Militao. "It is very difficult. We speak it. It goes to be difficult to the end. It is the reality of what are living", said, to finalise with a new complaint by the famous calendar. "The calendar is this, it is necessary to prepare well and try all the parties that touch us. Knowing that each party is difficult", concluded.
