Zidane: Real Madrid will be fine for the Super Cup

Despite Real Madrid being without a win in pre-season, Zinedine Zidane is confident that they will be ready to go for the European Super Cup.

He takes his side to Skopje where Manchester United await them on their return to Europe, as the Champions League winners meet the Europa League holders.

The Red Devils are among the sides who Los Blancos failed to overcome on their North American tour but Zidane isn’t worrying too much about those results.

“Hopefully we can get our first victory on Wednesday [against the MLS All Stars] but it isn’t the most important thing. However, I think that after these four games, we will be fine,” he said.

“We are physically fit, have worked very hard and there has been no bad news in terms of injuries so I’m not concerned about results as I have seen many good things from the players.”

Zidane also insisted that he isn’t worried about the off field issues which have swirled around Cristiano Ronaldo for most of the summer and believes that it won’t unduly impact on his performances.

“People talk about [the silence of Ronaldo this summer] but if he has spoken, then people would comment on that. The important thing is what he told me,” he added.

“He is calm and from August 5, he will be back with us and we hope that when he does, it will finish this theme for good.

“I don’t think he will be affected by anything that has happened, on the contrary he is happy because he wants to get back to playing football and is preparing to have another great season.”
