Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane is gonna continue with his rotation policy as the Madrid Manager is looking to rest his star players for the La Liga clash against Eibar. Zidane stressed that his side are not giving up on the La Liga challenge despite being 15 points behind leaders Barcelona.
Talking to the pre match press conference ahead of his side’s game against Eibar, the Madrid Manager said:
“There are moments in a season in which it is always difficult to keep your levels high. This league season has had ups and downs. When you see that you have a big gap from those at the top, it is tough for us mentally.”
“My message to the squad is that we are not going to lower our arms.”
Zidane has a fully fit squad available for the away game against Eibar and the Madrid Manager would be looking to give a run to the youngsters in the upcoming trip to Estadio Ipurua.
Spanish outlet MARCA believes that Zinedine Zidane will not risk star midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos for the trip to Eibar. Furthermore, it is also believed that Cristiano Ronaldo will be rested to make up playing time for Isco and Gareth Bale.
Real Madrid have an early lunch time kick off against Eibar on Saturday and the team would be looking to close the gap on La Liga leaders Barcelona who are already running away with the La Liga title.
