Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has insisted he would need every member of his squad, as they wobble towards the end of the season.
Zidane immediately undid the decisions of predecessors Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari, by reinstating the sidelined Keylor Navas, Marcelo, Isco, Marco Asensio and Gareth Bale in his XI against Celta Vigo on Saturday.
Isco and Bale netted in the second half, as Madrid took all three points at the Bernabeu.
Zidane told his postmatch news conference at the Bernabeu that he was not ready to write off players, who had contributed to the club’s success, including three Champions League victories during his previous spell in charge.
“Nobody here, or anywhere, can take away what these players have done here.
“I won’t get into what the previous coaches did, but I know the players they are, they have shown it before here.
“I am going to count on them. They showed that today, those who had played less – Keylor, Marcelo, Isco, Marco – all of them. I am going to count on all 25 players in the squad,” Zidane said.
