Zidane: "Luca is the third choice keeper"



The Real Madrid manager spoke after the victory over Huesca and discussed the game, needing to boost moral and the goalkeeper situation with Courtois out and Navas rested.

Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press after Real Madrid beat Huesca on Sunday night to make it two wins in two since he returned to the bench at the Bernabéu.

The game: "It was a crazy game but really nice for the people to have seen. We suffered a lot, but you have to congratulate out opponents. They are the bottom side and have played really well. They gave us trouble until the very end. But we continued with a good result, a win. We needed it for our moral."

Scare: "It's obvious that losing at home is tough and it would have been tough. Our opponent have played a great game. We are happy with the points. We know that we are going out the other end of a complicate season. We will think about the result and the effort. In the game, we had some good moment and also some difficulties."

Changes in the eleven: "We took advantage of the moment with a lot of players out with their international team. There are a lot of games and there are player who have trained here for 15 days. They did well. You have to keep going for the game we have left."

Brahim and Luca: "Good. Good. We saw Brahim, who hadn't played much and he did well. He didn't like when he didn't play much and he did well. Luca is the third choice keeper. Courtous wasn't ready and Keylor went with the national team and needed a bit of a rest. I gave minutes to the other keeper."
