Zidane: “We’ll be doing our utmost to make sure that the Santiago Bernabéu Trophy remains here”

“We’ve made a really good start to the season and we want to continue in the same vein”, added the Whites’ coach.

Zinedine Zidane shared his thoughts on his side’s fine start to the campaign as he spoke to Realmadrid TV and ahead of the 38th Santiago Bernabéu Trophy clash against Fiorentina (Wednesday, 10:45pm CEST): “It’s an important game for the fans. This year it falls after the first LaLiga matchday and we’ll be trying to deliver a good performance, but above all, we’ll be looking to ensure that the players get more playing time under their belts”.

“We’re in good shape fitness-wise and there are players like Cristiano Ronaldo who are going to start the game and play the full 90 minutes. We want the trophy to remain here and we’re aiming to put in a good performance”.

“We’d call on all of the fans who want to see the Santiago Bernabéu Trophy to be here with us and those supporters that stay at home know that they can watch the game on Realmadrid TV. We’ll be doing our utmost to make sure that the trophy remains here”.

Start to the campaign
“Let’s hope that we continue on in the same vein. We’ve made a really good start but we’re aware that it’s a long old season. The LaLiga campaign has only started and there are 38 matchdays in total and it’ll require a massive effort. We’re happy with how we’re performing. We want to continue in the same vein, particularly in terms of the way that we’re playing. If we can continue to play well then we’ll be happy”

– Lozil
