Zinedine Zidane Defends Decision to Play His Own Son In Real Madrid’s Win Over Huesca.

With Thibaut Courtois suffering an injury on international duty, and Keylor Navas rested after a grueling travel schedule with Costa Rica last week, Zidane decided to give the 20 years old only his second professional start.

The young goalie was powerless to stop either of Huesca’s goals, and the Frenchman looked good with the ball at his feet, but slightly not convincing enough when it comes to claiming crosses.

“I am happy for him. For his debut here, with a victory. But that is Luca, he is the third keeper,” said Zidane in his post match press conference, as reported by The Mirror.

“Thibaut was out and I wanted to give Keylor a rest after playing with his country. It came out well.

“I was not picking my son, but a player in Real Madrid’s squad. I see him as one other player for the team.”
