Zidane keeps options open for outcasts at Real Madrid

first_imgZidane’s return puts Bale’s future in further doubt, given the pair’s relationship became strained last season, before the Welshman said he was considering his future at the club.“I am not going to talk about Bale’s season, I only talk about the 11 games we have left,” Zidane said on Friday.“We all know the player that Gareth is. I am counting on him like everyone else, we are ready and Gareth is ready.”Whether Zidane’s words come with a place for Bale in his first starting line-up at the Santiago Bernabeu remains to be seen, as Madrid look to rebuild following a turbulent few months.Isco never started a single La Liga match under Solari while Marcelo increasingly found his place at left-back taken by the 22-year-old Sergio Reguilon.“Isco wants to play and nothing else,” said Zidane, who added on Marcelo: “He has also not played much but he is a professional. We have to respect everything the previous coaches did, it is not easy, but I am happy to see Marcelo again.”Madrid are 12 points adrift of leaders Barcelona and Zidane now has three months to assess his squad ahead of potential changes in the summer.“I am not thinking about that, we have to think about finishing the season well,” Zidane said. “You do not have to be thinking about who stays or goes, everyone has a contract here, then we will see what happens.”Zidane replaced Solari on Monday, returning to the club that he left only nine months ago after winning his third consecutive Champions League trophy.“It’s like the first day again,” Zidane said. “Even if it’s not new, it will be something different, it does not have to be the same thing. I am excited to have a new adventure.”Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have been among those linked with a move to Madrid, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez joking on Monday, “I would like them both”.“You are always delighted to coach the best players,” Zidane said. “We know the quality those two players have but what interests me is tomorrow’s game, nothing more.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane hopes Gareth Bale, Isco and Marcelo can all stay at the club © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMADRID, Spain, Mar 15 – Zinedine Zidane has offered a way back for Gareth Bale, Isco and Marcelo at Real Madrid as he prepares for his first game against Celta Vigo on Saturday since being re-appointed as coach.Bale, Isco and Marcelo have all endured difficult seasons under Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari, with Bale heavily criticised for his form while Isco and Marcelo have been dropped.last_img read more

This showpiece was completed in 2009 and officially handed over to City management on 14 December 2009, six months ahead of the World Cup kick-off on 11 June.The 69 000-capacity stadium is the pride of the city and has hosted three events already – a football and rugby game, and a religious gathering. During the World Cup the stadium will host five first round matches and one second round game, as well as one quarter-final and one semi-final.The Cape Town International Challenge will be its first multi-national football event, as well as the final one before the long-awaited world football spectacular gets underway.It will also be the first – and only – chance for the stadium management to test the venue’s night time capabilities. Seven of the eight World Cup matches take place under floodlights.The South African under-20 team, Amajita (isiZulu, meaning “the guys”), and Nigeria face off at 16h30 on 10 April, while Ghana and Brazil play at 19h00. The first round takes place on 8 April at the famous Newlands Stadium with Ghana and Nigeria playing at 14h00, followed by South Africa and Brazil at 18h00.The South African Football Association has made 65 000 seats available for the event. Tickets will cost R20 (US$2.80) or R30 ($4) and will only be available from Computicket. Fans arriving at the gates without a ticket will be turned away.With all World Cup tickets for Cape Town games sold out, South African football supporters can still grab an early chance to see international football at the stadium, at an affordable price.Boosting African footballThe challenge is an official World Cup event and hopes are high that it will boost the quality of youth football on the continent and abroad.Ghana is the current under-20 world champion, and Brazil hosts the next Fifa World Cup in 2014. The South American country is a former four-time under-20 world champion.City management hopes that the challenge will grow into an annual event, leaving a world-class legacy for young footballers in developing nations. Football fans who attend the event will also be helping organisers to confirm that Cape Town is ready to welcome the world to the first-ever African World Cup.“We need your help to test the city’s readiness to host the biggest event of all,” said Cape Town deputy mayor Ian Neilson. “It is important that this fourth event tests us to the limits.”The city’s sports and recreation director Gert Bam said that those who attend are in for a treat.Neilson added that city management was committed to developing young talent. “Some of the players in these teams will become household names in a few years and may even compete in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.”Young talentSome of South Africa’s brightest football stars have emerged from the under-20 ranks. Among them are striker Benni McCarthy, now with English Premier League team West Ham United; midfielder Elrio van Heerden, currently on loan to Turkish club Sivasspor from Blackburn Rovers; and winger Steven Pienaar, who plays for Premier League side Everton.Another well-known former Amajita player is lanky defender Matthew Booth, who caused confusion among visitors to the 2009 Confederations Cup when crowds yelling his name, “Boooooth!”, were thought to be booing him.The 1.9m-tall Booth currently plays for local team Mamelodi Sundowns as defender, after a stint with Russian club Krylia Sovetov Samara, where he was captain.last_img read more
