It has not been a dream start to the La Liga campaign for Real Madrid. Although Real Madrid were able to win their first match with ease, they had to be content with a draw in the second match which was played at their home ground against Real Valladolid. Team Manager Zinedine Zidane, in a post-match interview, lost his cool while talking about his team’s late defensive collapse.
The Madrid manager was apparently angry and frustrated with his team’s one-all draw match against Real Valladolid. He also lost control over his language in the post-match press conference.
“You can lose the ball, that can happen, but we were out of position to defend,” Zidane said as quoted by Live Soccer TV.
“We had done the most difficult, scoring a goal, and then we need to get the ball the f*** out of there for the rest of the game.
“We know we have to play the 90 minutes. We can’t just play 50 or 60 minutes. We did the most difficult which was to score,’ said Zidane.
“Our second half was not the best but we scored and in just a few minutes we conceded. We were out of position.
“The first half was good. But we lacked the ability to finish and so the result leaves a bad taste.
“It’s not losing the ball because that can happen but we were out of position to defend,” he said.
Karim Benzema and Sergi Guardiola were the scorers of the match as Madrid are temporarily placed on the second place with four points. However, as a consolation for dominating the possession, Madrid are set to finish above their arch-rivals Barcelona.
