Zinedine Zidane spoke with the media this Saturday before the decisive Valencia-Real Madrid of the Sunday to the 21:00 hours. The whites, at the expense of what do the FC Barcelona in Anoeta, will have to win to the 'ches' to arrive equalised to the Classical of the Wednesday. The French trainer knows of the importance of the meeting and do not want to neither hear speak of the crash against the barcelonistas.

"Neither we speak of this. It interests us what goes to happen tomorrow because it is the next party. I know that there are many to which interests them speak of this subject, but to me and to all here interests us the party of morning only", commented an insistent 'Zizou'. The press tried him take out something on the Classical to the Frenchman, that during all the press conference showed inflexible with this subject. "To me, like trainer of the Real Madrid, matters me the party of morning. The rest will see it the Tuesday. Today it is the party of morning, Valencia", said.

"It is LaLiga the one who puts the schedules and we respect it. We can not do at all"

Also it asked him to Zidane by the calendar of League, since the madridistas will have a day less than rest that the culés. The technician preferred not going in to value the reason of this. "It is LaLiga the one who puts the schedules and we respect it. We can not do at all in these things. The calendar do not do it I. We respect it, it is what goes us to touch. It is like this, we can not change this", recognised.

The trainer merengue also referred to Valencia and to the good level that is exhibiting these last weeks. The valencianistas arrive to the exultant crash of morals after sealing his classification to eighth of Champions like leaders of group. "It is another challenge. It is a team that is playing very well, that is having very good results, finish to classify for eighth in Champions. We know it. We want to give ours better version. As always, we will try to grow like team and like players", explained.

The journalists also asked him to Zidane if Casemiro, apercibido in League, rotará in front of the 'ches' thinking in the Classical. The Frenchman insisted in that Valencia is the most important and did not hint on what will do with the Brazilian. "The decision, the last word, is of the trainer. I speak always with my players, this is clear, because they interest me the feelings of each one. The of Casemiro is equal that the of all the players. We know his importance and the one of all. And I, at the end, have to do an alignment in each party thinking only in the party of morning. If I think in the one of the Wednesday because to all interests them more that, make a mistake", admitted.

Zidane signals the importance of the rotations

To the thread of this, the ex footballer ensured that the rotations go to be keys so that the Madrid hold the rhythm of parties that has by in front. "It goes to be complicated no rotar because have three good parties, important, and near ones of others. Have, as always it likes me say, 25 players and can have all. There is two or three that are was, but at the end have to others and go to have all in the three parties", signalled.

Besides, the French did not deny the possibility that Vinicius and Rodrygo play in front of Valencia or the Classical, as it has signalled in some sportive means. The Brazilians marked in front of the Witches and could be of the game in front of the culés the 18. "The football does not have age. In France there is a player with 42 years that follows playing. It is the hostia...", it commented, sonriente.

The forward already has had a pair of brush with the German when it has substituted him and have shot the rumours of his course. In spite of this, the madridista preferred not saying big thing by respect to the PSG. "It is a player of the PSG and do not go to comment I here what happens there. It would be a lack of respect. I know very well to Kylian, but have to respect", concluded.
