Zinedine Zidane , coach of Real Madrid , defended that he is much more like a coach than the fortune factor that many accuse him, but he accepted that he has "flower" on the bench.
"I accept that I can have a flower, I am a lucky person in life , so every day I thank life for what it has given me as a player, coach and as a person. I try to do well and work for that, you can think I have a flower and I accept it. Nothing happens , you can think, "he said.
For Zidane "nothing changes for having won the Super Cup of Spain", and although he admitted that his conquest is "a goal accomplished" and a moral boost, in his mind there is only the duel against Sevilla to continue with the line marked in League.
"We wanted to get the first title, it was an important mid-season trophy and we have achieved it with many difficulties. It is very important to continue the rest of the season. We know that what remains is going to be difficult , we have to keep writing history of this club, we hope the final is the best, "he said.
Zidane thanked the corridor that Sevilla will make for Real Madrid , but warned of its dangers. "Each one has his customs and we if they make us a corridor, we accept it," he said without wanting to enter into comparisons with Barcelona. "But they are going to come, with or without a hall, thinking only of the game that they have to do to add the three points. It is what we have to focus on, not what will happen before, but in a match against a very complicated opponent as he has shown all season, "he said.
Zidane expects a good reception of Real Madrid to Julen Lopetegui . "I hope they receive it well because it is also one of the house, has played many years here and the fans always welcome their people in a good way."
And it was more elusive when comparing the performance of the Real Madrid player group with Lopetegui compared to what they give him in command. "Every moment you have to live it. He wanted to make it phenomenal because he is a great coach, as he has always shown. I don't want to talk about his moment at Real Madrid because he finished as he finished but he is a very good coach."
Regarding the Copa del Rey , the Madrid coach agreed to play on the track where Unionistas does. "It is not going to change anything, it is official and we are going to have to play in its field that is a track. Today is not our concern, we will see next week."
And he ended up praising the moment of Thibaut Courtois . "He has demonstrated from the beginning and in the past that he is a great goalkeeper, always among the best in the world, and after complicated moments as it can happen to anyone in his career, he has managed to continue without lowering his arms. He knew the level that he had and with a lot of work he has come out of that small downturn and we are delighted with his level. "
