Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane satisfied with squad depth

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists he's satisfied with his squad options.

Ahead of their trip to Real Sociedad, Zidane was asked about their depth.

He said, "I know how we're going to set up tomorrow. These things happens and injuries are inevitable. We'll put out a very strong side tomorrow and the players who make the bench will also have an important role to play. I'm interested in having a strong group available for tomorrow's game.

"We won't be able to call on (Toni) Kroos or (Jesus) Vallejo, who are both suffering with niggles. We shall not be taking any risks with them. They're not major injuries. With Mateo (Kovacic) currently sidelined we don't want the same thing to happen to anybody else. (Dani) Ceballos felt some discomfort the day before yesterday, but he's trained as usual today and he'll be available."
