Real Madrid boss Zidane is worried by the demanding fixture schedule on his players.
Los Blancos will be playing 10 matches over a span of 32 days and this demanding fixture schedule is taking a toll on some of Real Madrid players.
Centre-back Sergio Ramos picked up an injury in the international break and his partner Raphael Varane is also a doubt with a shoulder issue.
“What I can say because I see it, is that the calendar is too much,” Zidane said in a news conference on Friday.
“I think about the players’ health. With all the games we have, they never stop. I’m worried.”
“When any player gets injured, it is bad news,” Zidane said.
“We know Sergio won’t be here. We want him to get well soon, the others are here and we’re thinking about the game. When you see your players get injured, it is the worst news for a coach.”
“Coaches need to feel heard,” he added. “We have meetings to try to change things. I’ve said how I feel, what I think.
“For the health of the players and the game, it’s important that we play well, that the players can rest, and that we put on a good show. But above all, the players’ health.”
