Zinedine Zidane Took The Blame For Real Madrid’s Loss.
Real Madrid went down in a big way, especially in the first half, and the criticism was directed at Zinedine Zidane. The Real Madrid coach took his share of the blame.
Zinedine Zidane sang the ‘mea culpa’ after the defeat to Shakhthar Donetsk. The coach of Real Madrid said that they lacked confidence but that they knew how to react.
“I didn’t see the team like I wanted to and when you don’t see it like you want to, you are to blame. I am responsible and I have to look for solutions because that cannot happen,” said the coach in ‘Movistar’.
Zidane assured that they lacked confidence at the beginning to “enter the game” as they know how to do. “We have reacted, there is a reaction of the players who are there.
It has not been possible to draw. Now I will reflect and think,” he added.
“Luckily we had a reaction in the second half because they don’t deserve that, they are champions and it bothers me,” said a Zidane who is already looking ahead to the ‘Clásico’ against Barcelona.
However, Zidane does not want to focus his attention on Barcelona, but considers it one more game. “Now we have to watch this game and then prepare for the other one.
We know it’s coming up fast on Saturday and we’re going to watch it,” he said.
About the rotations, he assured that it was “for the accumulation of games because they are players who never rest”. “We have a match every three days. But well, there is no excuse.
They are decisions that I have taken and I have to find what is going to take us to return to be strong and to win. And I have few days”, he stated.
