- Zidane. "I have strength and I feel supported"
Sanchez Pizjuán is not the best place to arrive with doubts, after a summer of curves and a very ugly defeat in Paris. That is why Real Madrid does not expect mercy in a field where it has lost in its last four seasons, always under a very heavy atmosphere.
Like El Sadar and other stadiums in the League, the Sevilla fans have made their rival flag with the white giant, with several and renewed arguments. The last one, the emergence of Real Madrid a year ago to gain the striker Mariano when he was almost traveling on Ave towards Santa Justa. Not even the cession of Reguilón seems to have lowered the temperature of a classic of the championship, marked in recent times by the peculiar relationship of Sergio Ramos with the stands of Nervión.
Almost 15 years ago he left for the Bernabéu , but the anger towards him instead of softening, has increased. Not even his public loyalty to Sevilla (the first to publicly congratulate the team on any success) convinces a hobby that does not happen to him. Nor does the white captain avoid rubbing before such a sullen atmosphere, in the form of goals and celebrations.
Such a duel has ended up benefiting the local team in recent games, launched by the push of theirs. Yesterday, the Hispanic club itself released a video asking its followers to focus on Seville, seeking to reduce revolutions to the reception that Madrid will have tonight. "We need to make a full 90 minutes," repeated the desperate Zinedine Zidane as a mantra in the last days.
He knows that only by waking up the lost intensity, his team has options to leave a piece of a stage like the one he will find today or in six days, in the Wanda Metropolitano . The destruction of the PSG is very recent, for the forms and the environment, the favorite competition of the entity. Hence the bad body, nerves, whispers and even the clouds over the coach (September 22). More media noise than internal, although the concern in the club exists for the bad start to the season, of course.
Yesterday it was Zidane's turn to explain even the day of freedom the team had after landing in Paris. «I also heard that the club was upset with this. When I look at the organization of my squad, with many players who have been with their selection, we have to take a day off. It is not a matter of whether they deserved it. Playing seven games in 21 days, it was the day to give them rest. Being with your family is very important too ». The French coach, who could strengthen his core with the young Valverde , instead of James, said yesterday in the previous one that he feels strong and with the confidence of his superiors. And he left a warning: «I don't feel questioned. I count on the strength of all the people who work here. And if not, better go out ».
