MÁLAGA-REAL MADRID | ZIDANE
Zidane: "Benítez? I've already got plenty to think about"
Rafa Benítez's comments on BT Sport: "I've already got plenty to think about dealing with my team. It's a subject that has been discussed more than enough already. I'm only focusing on tomorrow's game."
Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal a booking away from suspension: "It's true they're both on four yellow cards and if they get booked tomorrow they'll miss the derby, but my primary concern right now is tomorrow's game, and I'll field the line-up I feel is best."
Pride: “I am happy to be here. I knew that it would be difficult and everything is new for me, but I know that the most important thing is to pick up positive results and we are doing it. The only thing we all want is to work hard, because we know that's how to achieve things”.
Málaga: "We've recovered well and are ready. It is going to be a difficult game against a good side. I am sure it will be tough, like in Rome."
Pepe's recovery: "He's in good spirits. The issue he has takes time... He's much better. The plan is for him to continue with what he needs to do in the coming days, and from Tuesday he'll be back with the group".
Marcelo and James: "They're in perfect shape, doing well. Hopefully the shoulder issue is now in the past".
Jesé Rodríguez: "I think everyone deserves to play. That's one of the most difficult things for me, and my responsibility is to take decisions."
Raphael Varane suspended: "Nacho is ready to play. He is a very good player. We have four central defenders who are at the same level. He competes very well and he's ready to play."
