Zinedine Zidane On Real Madrid Squad: I Just Know The Players

Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo live online: LaLiga

Zidane made his mark by making changes to the Los Blancos starting XI for his 150th game in charge of the club, including Keylor Navas in place of Thibaut Courtois, and starting the much maligned Isco.

Gareth Bale also makes the team, while out of favour left-back Marcelo is also included.

Madrid have endured a tough season, struggling to adapt to life without Cristiano Ronaldo as the squad that won three consecutive Champions Leagues has shown signs of ageing.

It is clear Zidane is giving those who have been out of the team a chance to prove themselves and bring back the good times.

"Nobody here, or anywhere, can take away what these players have done here".

Marcelo comes in ahead of Sergio Reguilon, who did well under Solari.


But Real Madrid chiefs recently fired Santiago Solari after poor games this season and chose to hire former coach Zidane.

Real were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Ajax.

"Isco and Marcelo are both ready to play, they want to play and we will see them play", he said.

Even Navas enjoyed a standout moment in goal for Real, with Courtois watching on as his goalkeeping rival produced a stunning save from point-blank range to tip over Maxi Gomez's header, in what was Celta's only effort on target.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Manchester United with a host of players this summer as they look to bolster their squad in the coming months.
