Girona vs Real Madrid: Zidane speaks on security concerns

Posted on Oct 27 2017 - 9:37am by admin

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has insisted he is focused on facing Girona, despite reports the La Liga fixture could be postponed due to security fears in Catalonia.

Madrid are scheduled to make the trip to Girona on Sunday but the match might be moved, amid political tensions in the region.

Spain prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, approved implementing Article 155 of the Spanish constitution, which will allow the national government in Madrid to take back some powers from the semi-autonomous Catalan parliament following the region’s independence referendum three weeks ago.

“We’re not worried about Catalonia because security will be as it always is,” Zidane said after Madrid’s 2-0 victory at Fuenlabrada in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.

“We’ll play our game without thinking about anything else. I’m not going to ask the fans for anything.

“We’re thinking about the game. We hope it’s a good match and that’s it.”
