Real Madrid hosts Celta Vigo on Saturday, March 16 at 11:15 p.m. ET, Madrid's first match since Zinedine Zidane's return as manager was announced earlier in the week. As quoted by the Daily Mail, Solskjaer said: "I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players". I have a squad of 23, 24, 25 players and will count on them all.I believe all the players here know that you must play football. We have to respect everything the previous coach did, but Marcelo, in my eyes, is happy and eager to play, so I am happy with this.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Manchester United with a host of players this summer as they look to bolster their squad in the coming months.

However, it is believed that Zidane isn't an admirer of Courtois; indeed he dropped the Belgian for his first game back as Real boss and started Keylor Navas instead.

New Zealand enduring "one of darkest days" after Christchurch mosques massacre
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the national security threat level was being raised to the second-highest level. Players from the Bangladesh team were filmed escaping through a park near one of the mosques where the shooting took place.

Isco gave Real a deserved lead in the second half in the Madrid sunshine and Gareth Bale further raised spirits by sealing victory later in the game. "They showed that today, those who had played less - Keylor, Marcelo, Isco, Marco [Asensio] - all of them".

In fact, there were just three changes from the starting XI which beat Liverpool in last season's Champions League final, compared to five from last Sunday's win over Real Valladolid, which proved to be Santiago Solari's last game in charge.

"The feelings are positive. So there's so many things that we need to think about".
