Zinedine Zidane has banished some of the negativity surrounding Real Madrid, according to midfielder Dani Ceballos.

Madrid swatted aside Celta Vigo 2-0 in Zidane’s first game back as head coach since replacing Santiago Solari this week, with recalled duo Isco and Gareth Bale scoring second-half goals.

Ceballos was introduced as a substitute for Isco moments after his 62nd-minute opener and suggested the decision to dispense with Solari had been instantly vindicated.

“The change of manager seems to have worked,” he said. “The team felt much more positive today. The most important thing was the three points.

“Above all, what we have to do is achieve our objective, which is to finish as high up the table as we can.”
