Zidane: Guardiola is the best in the world and I will not talk about Pogba

The Frenchman is excited about real's last appearance before the start of the winter break

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane stressed the importance of video technology in football, after the controversy surrounding the Clásico clash against Barcelona last Wednesday.

A great case of controversy was raised over the decisions of the Clásico referee, which ended in a goalless draw, with demands from Real Madrid for two penalty kicks, and doubts about Gareth Bale's canceled goal.

Zidane came out in the press conference to face Athletic Bilbao on Sunday in the 18th round of la Liga and touched on some of the most prominent things the use of video technology and the possibility of Paul Pogba's transfer to Real Madrid.

"Technology is very important and gives a new advantage to football, which can be improved and supported by its future development," the Frenchman told reporters.

"I don't know anything and I don't care, all my focus is on facing tomorrow, the past is past and energy must be provided for everything that is coming."

The priority of winning the league: "The most important thing is to win every game because it is the mentality of the club and the way Real Madrid, working and fighting to the end."

Play against Bilbao: "Another tough showdown and we know very well what lies ahead tomorrow, and we are ready to end the year in the best possible way."

His assessment of himself as a coach and player: "I don't know, it depends on how I feel, maybe I'm a different coach and I deal unusually with everyone who works with me, I love coaching and I love playing the game too, all I care about is helping the players."

James Rodriguez called: "He's slowly getting into the team again and getting better every day, we'll see what happens tomorrow after seeing him in the mirror."

Facing Guardiola: "I have played against him many times and I respect him as a player and coach, I think he is the best coach in the world and has shown his quality throughout his career, very excited about his confrontation with Manchester City."

Federico Valverde can play with Paul Pogba if he joins: "I'm talking about my players only, they're doing a good job so far and they're very happy with that situation."

Real face their last clash in 2019, and they are second in la Liga with 36 points, 36 points ahead of top-ranked Barcelona.
