Zidane: I like this squad as it is and I hope no changes are made

A​fter his Real Madrid side kickstarted the season with a win, Zinedine Zidane insisted that he was very happy with his current squad and hopes no tweaks are made to it.

Los Blancos began the defence of their LaLiga crown with a 3-0 away win over Deportivo.

Following the game, the Frenchman was keen to pay tribute to the players who have excelled since he took over.

“I’m happy with the way the game went but not for what happened with Sergio [Ramos’ red card]. In general we are pleased because this isn’t an easy place to come to and they are a team who can cause you problems,” he said to reporters.

“Nobody has asked to leave and I want this squad as it is. I hope there aren’t any changes made but until August 31, anything can happen.”

The Frenchman, who refused to comment on Ramos’ sending off as he did not see the incident, was also pleased with Casemiro’s goal, which was the product of some fantastic teamwork.

“We try to play like that,” he added.

“We know that we have the players who are capable of helping us do it. It is something we work on so we are all satisfied.”
