With January fast approaching, Real Madrid icon Luis Figo has insisted that the club need not rush into the window, all guns blazing.
After a slow start to the season, the Portuguese veteran feels that the Merengues squad is already as good as it can get.
“There aren’t any players who could improve Real Madrid,” he stated to Bild.
The one-time Barcelona ace was Florentino Perez’s first Galactico signing over a decade ago but the former Ballon D’Or winner believes that the club is a very different place nowadays.
“It’s different to my era,” the winger said. “Before, Madrid gambled on big stars, but the philosophy has changed now,”
“The club gambles now as well, but on young players, on Spaniards.”
Discussing his former teammate Zinedine Zidane, Figo is enjoying watching the Frenchman’s success in the dugout.
“His current success shows that you can’t do any better as Real Madrid coach,” he stated, “I’m delighted for him.”
With one eye on the end of the season already, Figo also gave his opinion on the favourites for the 2018 World Cup.
“Portugal could be world champions, we have an experienced squad with players who know each other well,” he said.
“Germany showed the level they are at in the Confederations Cup, the Germans won with what they called a B team.”
