Luca Zidane Starts for Real Madrid Against Huesca

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane selected his son Luca, 20, to start in goal for the La Liga clash with Huesca on Sunday, although the youngster faced a nightmare start as he conceded after just three minutes.

"I like Pogba a lot, it's nothing new", he said. "It's one of the biggest clubs in the world", Pogba said while on global duty with France.

Huesca took a shock lead in the third minute of their first league visit to the Bernabeu when Cucho Hernandez smashed a cross from Ezequiel Avila past goalkeeper Luca Zidane, who was surprisingly brought into the team by his father.

"He knows how to defend, attack.

However, he is not my player and he is a Manchester United player and we have to respect that", said Zidane.

Thibaut Courtois would like Belgium team-mate and Chelsea star Eden Hazard to join him at Real Madrid. "It is up to the clubs".

He is waiting for Zidane to give the "OK", but the Frenchman wants to analyse his current squad after returning to the bench before giving a definitive response.

He said, "There's a lot of talking that goes on".

"And of course we are hoping to build a team strong enough worthy of the history of the club".

"We are going to play these 10 games [the last 10 of the season], and then we will see. That does not mean that, afterwards, there will be changes".

"The important thing is what the player thinks, and I can tell you he is very happy here". He's at home here, he's been here for eight years now and has done a terrific job.

"He will have a little bit more help on choosing and selection, but more importantly the decision I would say 100 per cent will be the manager's choice".

While on the worldwide break with the French national team, away from the watchful eye of Manchester United, Pogba admitted Real Madrid would be a dream for any footballer.
