Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos insists any previous issue between him and returning Coach Zinedine Zidane is now water under the bridge.
The midfielder joined Madrid from Real Betis for €16m in 2017 but started just four times in La Liga and not at all in the Champions League under the Frenchman last season.
The 22-year-old has been more heavily involved for Madrid this season, making 31 appearances but also not a regular in the starting line-up, behind Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
However, he started and scored in Sunday’s 3-2 victory over Huesca – his first home goal for the club – and spoke in a reconciliatory tone after the game.
“Me and Zidane have not spoken about the past, it is a new beginning for both of us,” Ceballos said, in quotes cited by Marca.
“It was a big moment for me to score my first goal at the Bernabeu and it was about time I did, but more importantly we won three points.
“No games are easy in this division but we kept our composure until the end and got the result we wanted.”
