Real Madrid coach Zidane: Ceballos deserved his selection

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says Dani Ceballos deserved to play for their defeat of Celta Vigo.

The midfielder lashed out at Zidane earlier this season.

But Zidane says: "I'm happy with his performance. He did a good job defensively as well. With the ball we know the quality he has. I will not talk about the past. It's fine and we're going to work in this direction."

Ceballos also stated: "You have to respect every decision he makes and everyone has to be switched on until the end of the league campaign. Since the first minute he has filed me with confidence, being the first change in the game at a key moment. He told me to play and enjoy."
