Zinedine Zidane has insisted that Real Madrid “have faith” in their ability to win La Liga ahead of Sunday’s trip to Granada.
Los Blancos head to Los Carmenes four points behind leaders Barcelona, whom have a game in hand over their arch-rivals, but the Coach is confident his side will pounce at any opportunity to close in on the Catalans.
“We all have faith in the League,” he said at a Press conference.
“The players especially know the situation. We know it’s difficult, but we’ll keep going until it’s mathematically impossible.
“We know it’s difficult away from home, so we have to start strongly and have a different game than against Betis. We can’t drop any more points.
“I can’t say much about Neymar. He plays well, some players like him, others don’t.
“It’s normal that some teams don’t like his tricks, but he puts on a good show. The fans enjoy players like him.
“[On Cristiano Ronaldo], I retired at 34 and it’s not that I took care of myself, but everyone can see how much Cristiano does.
“He’s just turned 31 years and turned into a beast. I think he has many more years at the highest level, and I hope they’ll be at Madrid.
“In addition to his goals and statistics, his best trait is his determination.
“My relationship with Cristiano is that I feel admiration for him, for the goals which he scores and everything he does.
“All football lovers worship Cristiano. He is never happy with what he does and always wants more
“I admire him and I hope it continues because he’s a super-important player for the team and I.”
