Zidane drops Courtois for first game back in charge — Real Madrid

Thibaut Courtois, with fellow Real Madrid goalkeeper Luca Zidane was dropped in place of Keylor Navas

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Zinedine Zidane made a crucial decision on Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos after making a return to the Bernabeu after ten months.

Gareth Bale was also named in the starting line-up at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday as Madrid launched their new era under Zidane at home to Celta Vigo in La Liga.

Zidane won seven titles in his first spell as Real Madrid manager including an unprecedented three Champions League titles in a row.

The man who scored winning goals in the 2014 Copa del Rey final, 2014 Champions League final and a brace in last season's Champions League final, has been subjected to some of the most vitriolic abuse to come from Madridistas in recent years.

Zidane immediately began ringing the changes this week with the signing of promising defender Eder Militao, who will join in the summer, but his immediate concern is which 11 players will take to the field this afternoon.

Zidane's favoured formation was 4-3-3 with Cristiano Ronaldo spearheading the attack, but will have to make alterations without the Portuguese forward, who left for Juventus last summer.

But Real Madrid chiefs recently fired Santiago Solari after poor games this season and chose to hire former coach Zidane.

"Isco and Marcelo are both ready to play, they want to play and we will see them play", he said. Karim Benzema did put the ball in the back of the net but the whistle had been blown for a foul by Gareth Bale in the buildup.
