Zinedine Zidane has reiterated that he is as hungry as ever for success at Real Madrid.
“I feel the same hunger, but we have had strange things happen to us,” Zidane said.
“There are injuries, we didn’t have a proper pre-season, but that same desire is never lost.
“That never happens at this club, the players appreciate where they are and what it means to play for Real Madrid, we always have desire, whenever we play a bad game I never believe it to be a matter of desire.”
Zidane has also talked about the issue with Marco Asensio.
But Zidane insists: “We have to stop talking about what he has to do and just let him play.
“We know all about his quality and the only thing that he has to do is rediscover his form.
“But, little by little, we’ll start to see the best of Marco because he had a serious injury and has had another one this season.”
Real Madrid are on a torrid run in the league and will be hoping to get back in form with a win in the Champions League.
