During his time at Real as a player, Zidane was massively successful - he starred in the legendary Galactico side and won La Liga in 2002/03, but of course his crowning achievement came a season prior to that, when he scored the winning goal in the Champions League final - a classic volley - to help Real claim their ninth title.
Zidane was quoted by Marca as saying in the post-match press conference, "I am convinced that by February, we'll be fine".
Los Blancos sealed second spot in the group on Wednesday night after a 3-2 win against struggling German side Borussia Dortmund. "I don't care what team we play, this doesn't take place until February".
The Frenchman also gave an update on the injury to defender Varane. After the break, we'll be okay; we are looking forward to the draw on Monday even though a difficult opponent is coming. The important thing was to get through to the knockout stage, we've done that. From January 1 to January 31, we can sign players.
Navas, 30, finds his position as the first-choice stopper at the Bernabeu under threat, with Athletic Bilbao keeper Kepa being linked with a winter-move to Real Madrid.
"Regarding signings, I have two goalkeepers and I'm very happy with both of them".
"I saw Keylor [Navas] play well, although we can always give a little bit more, like always". The former has largely been a strong and reliable performer for the Spanish giants but is perhaps just outside the small cabal of elite goalkeepers in world football, while the latter has not been particularly convincing as a back-up.
However, the French coach didn't rule out the possibility that the latest spate of injuries could force the club to reinforce the squad come January.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has claimed that his team could do business in the January transfer window. That ship has sailed, and at this level you cannot go back.
"Now we must focus on the league, then we will worry about the Champions League".
