I took the decision for the good of the player," Zidane said. "Nothing has changed. We are relaxed. I'm not stupid, and he is intelligent. We are all here for the same thing."
Coquelin out for three weeks
Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has been ruled out of action for three weeks with a knee injury. Coquelin was forced to leave the field in the 32nd minute of the Gunners' 3-0 victory over Chelsea at the Emirates on Saturday, after he was hurt in a challenge with N'Golo Kante. There were initial fears the 25-year-old could be sidelined for a lengthy spell when he left the ground in a knee brace, amid suggestions he may have aggravated an injury suffered at West Brom that kept him out for more than two months last season.
Tottenham receive Kane injury boost
Tottenham will be without five first-team players for Tuesday's Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow but a latest scan has revealed Harry Kane could return earlier than expected. The striker was initially feared to be facing around eight weeks on the sidelines but it is understood it could now be closer to six.

Aurier given two-month jail term

Jenkinson returned to Arsenal to recover and is now ready to get back into action for the Gunners after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Robben allays injury fears
Winger Arjen Robben has played down concerns that he has re-injured his abductor muscle, saying he will be available for Bayern Munich's midweek Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid. The fears were raised during the first-half as Robben warmed up, where he was seen to return to the bench in some discomfort. "I felt a nerve during the warm-up and I was taking no chances," Robben said following the match. "It's nothing bad, it was just a precaution. One must not forget that I am only just coming back having been out for a long time through injury."
Augusto injury a blow to Atletico
Antoine Griezmann was Atletico Madrid's hero once more with the winner against Deportivo la Coruna. However, the hosts' victory was overshadowed by an anterior cruciate ligament injury suffered by midfielder Augusto Fernandez before half-time that will keep him out for much of the remainder of the season. Jose Maria Gimenez also had to be replaced in the first half with a groin injury and is set to miss Wendesday's huge Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
Hamburg appoint Gisdol
German Bundesliga strugglers Hamburg on Sunday appointed Markus Gisdol as their new coach after earlier sacking Bruno Labbadia. The former European Cup winners released a statement to say the 47-year-old Gisdol had agreed a contract through to the end of the season. Gisdol, who had previously been in charge at Hoffenheim, takes over a HSV side who lie third from bottom after collecting just one point in their opening five league games.
De Bruyne 'out for four weeks'
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will be sidelined for approximately four weeks with a hamstring injury, according to reports. The Belgian played in City's 3-1 win away at Swansea City on Saturday but was unable to finish the match, being replaced in the 82nd minute. Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur reported on Sunday that De Bruyne underwent a scan and would be sidelined for "about four weeks with a hamstring injury". The forward missed 12 games with a knee injury last season which kept him out between January 28 and March 31.
Collins headed to IR with toe injury
Dallas left guard La'el Collins will be placed on injured reserve with a possible return late in the season. Collins left late in the first half of Sunday night's 31-17 win over Chicago with a right toe injury. Putting Collins on IR opens a roster spot for the Cowboys while giving Collins a chance to return to practice in six weeks and play in a game after eight weeks.
Russell Wilson suffers knee injury

Ramos to have MRI on injured knee
Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos will have an MRI on his right knee after injuring it in a 14-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night. He tore the ACL and medial collateral ligament in his right knee in 2012.

Fernandez dies in boating accident
Miami Marlins star Jose Fernandez, one of the most dominant pitchers in Major League Baseball, was killed in a boating crash early on Sunday in Florida, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The 24-year-old and two other people died when their 32-foot vessel slammed into a jetty off Miami Beach, authorities said. Fernandez escaped from Cuba by boat on his fourth try as a teenager, and when his mother fell into the Yucatan Channel during the journey, he jumped in and pulled her out.
