Zidane rages: This ban is nonsense

As might be expected, the coach of Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane did not accept the news of the transfer ban imposed by FIFA, according to which the club can not sign with new players until January 2018. The punishment that also includes Atletico Madrid is due to improper attract of underage players. Now these kids are not allowed to play for Barcelona as well. "This is nonsense - said the angry Frenchman of today's press conference. - I think it is unfair, absurd. Now I can tell my kids that I can not count on them and will explain the reason. They must to be patient. let's wait and see if the club will be able to solve this problem. At this stage we have nothing to do, so let's not talk more on this subject, because fairy tales will not change anything." Zizu quickly move towards to the positive side, namely that Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are fully recovered from injuries and will be able to play against Osasuna tomorrow (Saturday). The match is on "Santiago Bernabeu". "For Cristiano will be the first meeting for last 60 days. You have to give him some time to reach the optimal level. Karim is also ready and will be up.", laconic said Zidane. Casemiro, James Rodriguez and Marcelo, however, will not be in the group for the match, because they are tired after clashes with their national teams and need a break. Isco will not take a part in the match for sure, because of his injury from the match against Celta and next week it is expected to be fit. Keylor Navas and Fábio Coentrão are injured too, but there isn't a certain date for their returning. The coach is preparing for rotations, because next week starts the battle in the Champions League. "I try to be very honest with the players. We have 24 players and one match can start only 11 and three more can join as substitutes. Some will play more than others, but this is normal for the big teams. All of the competitions are important to us, but La Liga is the most important one. The championship is the most difficult, because there are 38 rounds and we have to win every game. Last season we were one point away from the title and we do not want this to happen again", said the coach of the "Santiago Bernabeu".
