Copa del Rey might not always be considered a major target for big Spanish teams such as Real Madrid, especially during early stages, but that doesn’t stop head coach, Rafael Benitez from urging his players to focus.
Sharing his views in the latest news conference ahead of Madrid’s Copa tie against Cadiz this midweek, Benitez stated that Los Blancos players must be concentrated in that game.
Benitez believes it won’t be an easy task for his team in getting over their opponent, but the Spaniard is confident that his players will do well.
Moreover, the tactician also denied any rift with James Rodriguez, stating that there’s no issue whatsoever with the Colombian international.
The former Liverpool manager stated that Rodriguez’s problems is only in terms of fitness level, adding that once the Colombian is back at his best, he will be regularly playing like previous season.
