Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane lauded Brahim Diaz's performance against Getafe, highlighting his "fearless" approach.

Zidane's Madrid was held to a goalless LaLiga draw by Champions League-chasing Getafe on Thursday.

Madrid was left without a win in three LaLiga away matches but Diaz was a shining light at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, where the 19-year-old attacker – who left Manchester City in January – impressed.

"I am happy with his progress, he had a great game," Zidane said. "He likes to play and I love fearless players, he is two footed and quick.

"He had a good game but had to come off due to cramp. He played well and I am happy, I love how he plays.

"Let's see what happens next year. The key thing is what happened today."

Diaz – who signed a six-and-a-half-year contract in a move reportedly worth an initial €17million – has been limited to just two LaLiga starts since leaving the Premier League champion.

In total, the Spaniard has made seven appearances in all competitions for Madrid.
