Zinedine Zidane makes a strange claim regarding Marcelo's latest injury
- The Brazilian has picked up and injury during our clash with Galatasaray.
- As you would expect, the manager was asked about Marcelo's condition.
- Strangely, Zidane has said he doesn't have 'permission' to reveal any information regarding the player.
Ferland Mendy is set to replace Marcelo in the starting XI against Eibar due to the senior player's injury picked up during the clash with Galatasaray. During Zinedine Zidane's pre-match presser on Friday, the Frenchman had to explain the situation around the Brazilian. The answer was, to say the least, surprising.
"I will not tell you anything about Marcelo's injury because I don't have the permission to do so," unexpectedly uttered the manager.
Whether it was another case Zidane being unable to come up with the appropriate words in Spanish or it simply a misunderstood joke, it's quite strange to hear Zinedine admitting to being controlled from within the club.
In any case, we would like to see Marcelo come back as soon as possible to see more goals like this one:
Do you think Zidane simply misspoke?
