Zinedine Zidane: Karim Benzema's rewards will come despite his struggles

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says he does not expect continuing noise around the controversial late penalty decision against Juventus in the Champions League last week to have any effect on the refereeing in their upcoming semifinals against Bayern Munich. "To talk about these things more is to beat about the bush".

According to Don Balon, United boss Jose Mourinho is still said to be interested in signing Gareth Bale, and the Portuguese could supposedly part ways with Pogba to push through a summer agreement. "Against Bayern, we will do our work, and the officials will do their jobs". I will not do it any more.

Still, Zidane has challenged his players to overhaul second-placed Atletico Madrid - who lead their capital city rivals by four points with six games to play - before the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Pogba has come for criticism for his inconsistent showing this season, but the Frenchman holds more importance than ever for United next term, owing to Michael Carrick's retirement and Marouane Fellaini's probable exit on a free transfer. "We have got up to third and we want to take this opportunity of playing at home tomorrow to get close to second place".

The airstrikes were triggered by an alleged chemical attack in the town of Douma, just outside of Damascus. Syrian activists said more than 40 people were killed, but Syria and Russian Federation deny the attack.

"This is football, we're all in the same team and I need all my players, I don't think they're sad, they're working great on the training field", he told the media.

Bale was then not included in the squad for Sundays 2-1 win over Malaga in La Liga but Real insisted the plan had always been to rest players for the match. It always happens in a team that other players are in better form, which is what we are seeing.

The 30-year-old has managed to score only nine goals in 38 games across all competitions this season, while providing 11 assists. "We've got very good players and I have to evaluate that".
