Already since it initiated the market of traspasos veraniego, saw come that the Real Madrid could not 'plant' to all his descartes. Finally, yes it did a good work in the 'operation gone out', but in any case the staff madridista finish remaining in 26 footballers without explaining to the third goalkeeper Diego Altube, something that forces to Zinedine Zidane to have to make descartes week by week.

It is true that the French technician is very adherent of the rotations and that, for example, against the Witches left out of the announcement to important footballers like James Rodríguez or Gareth Bleat. When it confronts to an a priori affordable rival, opts for giving him the opportunity to the 'second unit' to keep filmed to all the team, but neither like this is sufficient so that all have minutes.

The most evident case in the team madridista is the one of Brahim Díaz, the young offensive midfield player that the Real Madrid fichó the past market of traspasos of pertinent winter of the Manchester City. The malagueño has not gone in in neither an alone announcement of the nine that has had Zidane along this beginning of season. In fact, the French referred to this in room of press.

"When one is not summoned is fucked, in the sense that train and want to be. I think that the plan with him is the same that with all. It has to be ready, know that this moment is not the one of more advance. Already it is well and having 25 players... It is what more bothers me, have people out of the list, that remain home... I can not say at all. Say him that it insist in training because I go to have all", commented. Mariano, by his part, is in an alike situation.

Few are to save in the Real Madrid

There is a series of players that are fixed in the announcements of Zidane, except injury or rest. They are it the two goalkeepers, Courtois and Areola; they are it also five defences (Carvajal, Bouquets, Varane, Marcelo, Militao), three midfield players (Casemiro, Kroos, Modric) and three forwards (Bleat, Benzema, Hazard). The rest of players of the staff alternate the bench with the terracing, with some titularity by need.

An important thickness of players (formed by Nacho, Odriozola, Mendy, Valverde, Isco, James, Lucas, Vinícius, Rodrygo, Jovic, Brahim and Mariano) are not fixed in the team and are noticing the 'overbooking of mates. To all this, when it go back Marco Asensio of his grave injury, there will be an element more in the staff and, of course, fewer minutes to deliver.
