Zidane: Real Madrid won't win Club World Cup on reputation

  |   Football

Zinedine Zidane said Real Madrid want to add the Club World Cup to the trophy cabinet before fighting to retain their La Liga and Champions League crowns, emphasising his side won't claim the title on reputation alone.

Two-time champions Madrid will face Emirati outfit Al Jazira in Wednesday's semi-final at Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

And Madrid are keen to secure their third title of the season, having already claimed the UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de Espana.

"It will not be easy and last year we had a lot of problems before we managed to win it," Zidane said.

"There will not be easy games and for just being Real Madrid we are not going to win. We have time to prepare for the game and there are no excuses.

"This is the calendar and whoever we face we need to look at doing what we have to do well.

Madrid are fourth in La Liga after 15 games, eight points adrift of rivals and leaders Barcelona, while the Spanish capital club are set to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16.
