Real Madrid coach Zidane: We'll be ready for El Clasico change

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists they will adapt to any date change and be ready for El Clasico whenever it takes place.

Los Blancos' meeting with Barcelona at the Camp Nou on October 26 has been postponed, with the two clubs told to decide on a new date between them.

"I know that you're interested about this topic, but we're going to do what they tell us to," Zidane said about the situation.

"If we have to play on October 26, we will do it and if there's a change of date, the most important thing is that we're prepared.

"I know there's a lot of debate because it's logical but my position as coach is this; be ready for the date that they tell us [to play]. We will adapt.

"I have a preference but I'm not going to tell you, we know that it could be December 7 or 18, we're adapting to this.

"What I think is that [I will do] what they say and we'll play when asked to. Like everyone, I don't like violence, but no one does. I'm not going to get involved in this because I don't like violence."
