Zidane: Madrid don’t need a goalkeeper

Zinedine Zidane insists Real Madrid ‘did not and do not need a goalkeeper’ following Kepa Arrizabalaga’s contract renewal at Athletic Bilbao.

The Madrid Coach once again reinstated his faith in goalkeeper Keylor Navas, despite the club constantly being linked to others including Kepa along with Thibaut Courtois and David De Gea.

“In January we did not and do not need to sign a goalkeeper,” Zidane told reporters, as cited by Marca.

“We had three then and we still have three now, maybe in the future the situation will change when we need a goalkeeper and we can discuss that then.

“I am not here to talk about those who are for or against our club, but there have always been anti-Madridistas but the positive thing is there are more Madridistas every day.

“Against Bayern, we will do our work, and the officials will do their jobs. To talk about these things (refereeing decisions) more is pointless and I will not do that any more.

“Arturo Vidal’s absence? He is an important player, but nothing will change. Bayern have a very deep squad, very important players, and will replace him well for sure.”
