Zinedine Zidane: 'I Like Pogba A Lot'

Zinedine Zidane: 'I Like Pogba A Lot'

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane selected his son Luca, 20, to start in goal for the La Liga clash with Huesca on Sunday, although the youngster faced a nightmare start as he conceded after just three minutes. He is different and he contributes things that few can do, as he knows how to attack and defend.

"But for everything that are rumours, he does not play for my team, he plays for Manchester United and you have to respect that".

Zidane was not so forthright when Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe - another reported target for Madrid - was mentioned.

'We are going to play these 10 games and then we will see, ' he said when asked about Bale. "For me, he is one of the best in the world and as a friend I would like him to be here". We don't know what the future holds.

He said, "There's a lot of talking that goes on".

"We know what he has done here, even in Champions League finals". We know he can bring a lot to the team, and we will count on him.

And now Courtois says he'd welcome a move that would see his worldwide teammate become a club colleague again. He's at home here, he's been here for eight years now and has done a terrific job.

Keylor Navas, who started the first game of Zidane's second spell as manager before the worldwide break, drops to the bench while there is no place for the injured Thibaut Courtois.

Hazard won his 100th global cap during the break and Sarri bemoaned the state of his squad after the start of Euro 2020 qualifiers. Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane have all been excluded from the 19-man squad named by the manager.
