The Real Madrid he spends critical days, eliminated from the Copa del Rey, without a Super Cup, and away from LaLiga. All point to a recovery of the team before the Champions League match against Atalanta. The first to notice is Zinedine Zidane, the coach who knew how to win absolutely everything with Merengue.
At the press conference prior to the weekend’s clash against Huesca, a journalist invested his minutes in telling him that he was vindictive, to which the Frenchman responded in amazement: “Are you serious?” After assimilating the question, the DT exploded: “Of course, I vindicate myself with the players and we are going to fight. We deserve to continue fighting. Last year we won LaLiga. We, Real Madrid, have won it. We have the right to fight our league this year. At least this year”.
With the entire press room silent, the three-time Champions as coach continued: “Then you and others are right that next year we have to change, we have to do things. But let us fight this league to those of us who won it last year. Last year, not ten years ago”.
“You ask me and you make me laugh … But nothing happens. You say many things and you have to assume them. Tell me to my face ‘we want to change you’, but you have to say it, not only from behind”he continued.
Despite the distance in the table, Zidane made it clear that his Real Madrid will fight to the end and that he will take responsibility. “I’m a bit angry, and I’ve been locked in the cage for two weeks and I want to go out and show that I’m going to fight until the end”, he concluded.
