Real Madrid coach, Zinediine Zidane was asked about a possible arrival of Erling Haaland at the Merengues. For the moment, the technician does not seem to be excited about a transfer of the striker from Borussia Dortmund.
Zinedine Zidane is annoyed about Erling Haaland
In search of an understudy, or even a successor to Karim Benzema, Real Madrid spent 60 million euros to recruit Luka Jovic. But the Serbian striker proved to be a flop for the Spanish club, scoring only two goals in 32 appearances for the Merengues. H e has been loaned to his former club Eintracht Frankfurt. While Real still has only Benzema, the name of Erling Haaland is regularly associated with the club. Something that begins to annoy Zinedine Zidane. In a press conference, the Madrid coach did not hide his weariness about a transfer of the Norwegian.
Zizou’s dry answer for Haaland
“He’s not one of my players. Anything that could happen outside, I’m not going to get into those things. I’m tired of saying it, I’ll answer the same,” said the Real Madrid coach. Facing the media, Zizou took the opportunity to remind what his job is in Madrid. “My job is to prepare the game with everyone,” said the coach of the White House before the reception of Eibar this Saturday. This is the last rehearsal before the big clashes that await the Merengues. On Tuesday, they will face Liverpool in the quarterfinal first leg of the Champions League. On Saturday, April 10, they will receive Barça in La Liga before the return match against the Reds in C1. In view of this schedule, we understand better why Zinedine Zidane avoids the subject Haaland. Mino Raiola, his agent, and Alf-Inge Haaland, his father, met with Barca officials and then with Real on Thursday. According to ESPN, Los Blancos would be in pole position in this case in view of their better financial situation compared to the Blaugrana.
