'Real are short a striker': Zidane regrets Chelsea star's departure

Asensio Zidane said my left foot was best since Messi

"Last season after the first game against Monaco it was hard to change the dynamic".

Ronaldo was dismissed during the first leg of its Supercopa de Espana triumph over Barcelona and received a five-match ban for shoving the referee.

Asensio said that the Frenchman has compared him to Messi, who is arguably the best player in the world.

"It seemed unusual to us that Neymar left Barcelona". "We can not talk about a dependency, but I always want him to be with us".

Real Madrid have scored in 71 straight matches in all competitions, but were held to a 1-1 draw against Levante. Cristiano brings not only goals, but is a leader as well and he always wants to win. "We are excited about starting again but we know it will be hard".

As well as Ronaldo, Zidane will also be able to recall Keylor Navas, Raphael Varane, Casemiro, Luka Modric, Isco and Gareth Bale after they were all rested against Levante.

Zidane was critical of his side after their display at the weekend, but said he and his players were relaxed despite drawing back-to-back league games for the first time in a year.

A Real Madrid star has insisted he has no desire to join Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, despite the recent rumours surrounding his future.

"We can't be happy with the results, but you're always going to have a few bad results in a season".

Zinedine Zidane believes his Real Madrid squad is a striker short and regrets Alavaro Morata's decision to leave the club.

With Benzema sidelined, 20-year-old Borja Mayoral is the only natural centre-forward available to Zidane.

"'We tried to get in another player, a year ago we had Morata and Mariano and now only [Borja] Mayoral is in the squad".
