La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 11/05/2018

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane explained Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar’s compatibility when asked if the two can play together on the same team.

Zidane used his personal encounter with Youri Djorkaeff to explain the situation.

"Good people have chemistry," he said to reporters.

"Compatible with Cristiano? The good players are always compatible.

"They told me I was not compatible with Djorkaeff, and I don't know about off the field, but there was chemistry on it."

Asked whether there were negotiations with the Brazilian, Zidane gave nothing away.

"I don't know if the club is talking to Neymar," he continued.

"I've not asked for him either.

"Hopefully the season will end well and the rest will be discussed later."

Paris Saint-Germain players are fed up with how Neymar has received preferential treatment, and their dressing room is tense at present.

The fear is that Real's could be the same if the Brazilian arrives.

"It's not going to upset us to talk about Neymar," he added.

"We will prepare well for the final well, I'm not worried."

Real Madrid will host Celta Vigo on Saturday in their last home game in La Liga this season.
