Varane: Zidane Lets Me Play Outside Of My Comfort Zone

Raphael Varane has praised manager Zinedine Zidane for not letting him get comfortable in his comfort zone.

The 24-year-old defender recently signed a new contract with the defending La Liga and UCL champions, extending his contract till 2022.

And Varane has praised his compatriot, Zidane, saying he has learnt a lot from the France legend.

“He has given me a lot, in my attitude, in my play and in the risks that I take,” Varane said, via Marca.

“He is someone that doesn’t allow me to remain in my comfort zone, he has a lot of experience and it is a great opportunity for me to learn from him.”

The centre-back believes he will only get better, saying: “I have my style of play and people can criticise me for that which is not a problem.

“I try to play to my strengths and I think I am a more rounded player now aged 24 than I was aged 18.

“In my position you talk about a mature player being around 28 and it is normal that you improve.”
