Zidane happy James, Benzema on Real Madrid scoresheet

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was delighted with victory over Espanyol.

James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema struck in the 2-1 win.

Zidane stated: “When the rotations work out you can only be happy. One goes in, another one comes out and everyone does really well. We're always going to rotate players, we've got quality players and we're going to carry on this way.

“I've got 24 players and they're all quality. We're going to play 60 games and we have to change players in each game because we're playing every three days. Everyone is doing really well and putting in a lot of effort.

“James had to play in the middle, behind Karim, as a number 10. He looked good in that position. I'm happy not just because of the goals from James and Karim, but due to the overall performance and what they did in general. They are talented players and they can make a difference, as they did tonight. The most important thing is how they all worked together."
