"I have the best players", stated the French coach adding that "Gareth Bale is a registered player and I'll call upon him".
Zinedine Zidane spoke to the media this morning as his Real Madrid side prepare for their 2019-20 LaLiga opening game away to Celta Vigo.

James: "He's in good form and I'm happy to have him in the squad. I'll call upon all players that I have at my disposal".
Play well or win: "I'd like to be able to do both, play well and win. Winning is a result of what you do on the pitch and one has to compete too".
What is the objective from the gama against Celta: "Win. We have to be ready to win and compete. This is the best league in thew world and competition is stiff".
Negative feeling after pre-season: "There is always talk after poor results but the season hasn't even started yet. We need our fans on our side".
Neymar: "He's not a Real Madrid player and my sole focus is on the group I have".
Mathias Pogba said that the team could do with his brother: "Paul is a Manchester United player and we can only focus on the squad we have here".
Kubo: "I really hope he stays with his to progress his game. He'll start of playing with Real Madrid Castilla (2B) but he is the future of Madrid".
The past five months: "I don't focus on the past and what happened, happened. We're focused on the future"
Bale: "It looked at one point that he was going to leave but he's still with us. He's an important player and and will cause headaches for me in selecting a starting eleven".
Vinicius: "He's only 18-years-old and I'll count on him as I will the rest. My task at hand is to chose the best players".
Personal situation: "I don't care what people think and don't listen to the levels of criticism. This is part and parcel of being a coach. I know what I want and am aware that what is happened in the past is soon forgotten about".
