    Rueda de prensa de Zinedine Zidane

    Zidane: “We will give our all and the fans will be behind us”

    NEWS | 13/02/2018 | Javier García | PHOTOGRAPHER: Ángel Martínez

    “We don’t feel the pressure, we like playing games like this”, he added.
    Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press in the pressroom at Real Madrid City in the build-up to Wednesday's game against PSG in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 (8:45pm CET). The coach shared his thoughts in front of the large gathering of journalists: “We're focussing first and foremost on the game tomorrow. We know it will be a 180-minute affair, maybe more, but the first challenge comes tomorrow and that's that. It will be a 50/50 tie. Both teams have a good chance of getting through”.
     
    “We just want out fans to be proud of us. We're going to give our all and the fans will be behind us, just as they always are, even when the going gets tough. Tomorrow is another competition to focus on and we'll give absolutely everything”.
     
    System
    “What I want is for my team to be focussed on the game. We'll see tomorrow. The system isn’t really important, it’s what we do out there on the pitch that counts. What I can tell you is that the way we set up isn't the key. My concern is what my players go out there and do”.
     
    Rivalry
    “This won’t change what people may think of us. All I’m thinking about is the performance we are going to put in and not what people say. Against PSG, being an Olympique de Marseille fan, it’s true that historically there is a rivalry, but I’m not thinking about that. This is Real Madrid-PSG and we know it will be a hard-fought affair against a great side who can really make life hard for us”. 
     
    A special game
    “I’m happy to be involved in such games. I don’t think there is any real pressure at the moment. We have prepared just as we always do and it’s true that pressure will always be there in the background. That’s normal, I’m going to enjoy this”.

    “I’m not thinking about my future, I’m just focussed on tomorrow’s game. That is what I’m concentrating on. We are going to try and put in a good shift, and do our job well. All of the training session, all of the games, they play a role for us and my future is not the key thing here”.
     
    Pressure
    “I’m not sure which side has the most pressure on them. We don’t feel pressured, we are used to playing in such games. We want to experience a good match and people come out to see a spectacle. It is not a final for me.  It is a Champions League game. What we have to do is play well and if we do that the sky is the limit”.
     
    Cristiano and Neymar
    “We’ve been speaking about big players but tomorrow is a case of Real Madrid-PSG, not Neymar against CristianoCristiano has done some extraordinary things and won five Ballon d’Or trophies. I’m not going to make any comparisons. We all know what Neymar can do on the pitch. He has real quality and often makes the difference. We’re not here for a showdown between those two, we’re here to watch Real Madrid take on PSG”.
     
    Bale substitutions
    “I have to make substitutions during the game and I often do that with the offensive players. I have done it with BaleIscoBenzema… there is nothing more to it”.
     
    Guti as a coach
    “I think he is capable, I see him working as a coach now and hopefully he will make the step up one day. I’ve said that to him and I think he’s doing well. I really think he’s making strides. He’s a Real Madrid man through and through, he has been here forever. He is living out his dream, so hopefully one day he’ll get there”.
     
    Man marking?
    “I’m not sure if I have to reply or not. I keep my cards close to my chest. Let’s see what happens tomorrow”.
