Real Madrid drew 1-1 with Villarreal.
Post the Villarreal and Real Madrid game, Zidane spoke about the performance.
The French coach has this to say: “We deserved much more from today’s performance, especially in the first half. I’m annoyed as the boys worked really hard”.
“We dropped two points. We have to praise my players, they did well, we controlled the game and in one move they equalised. That can happen in football. We had a chance today to pick up three points and it’s a shame”.
On Mariano’s substitution, he stated: “He hadn’t played for a long time and was exhausted at the end”.
When asked about his personal situation, he said: “I have the same drive and it will always be like that until the last day. You continue with what you’re doing and I’ll get on with my work”.
Zidane also spoke about Hazard’s involvement in the team and Isco’s move away from Madrid.
“He’s (Hazard’s) here, he’s played, its true that he’s not played for a long time and in a match you have to manage the minutes well, but he’s involved and he’s fine”.
“He’s (Isco’s) a Real Madrid player, he’s staying here and that’s it. We’re not going to talk about what happens inside, that stays inside”.
