Zidane is confident that Real Madrid will emerge as winners against rivals Inter.
Madrid face Inter on Wednesday, without captain Sergio Ramos and injuries on the team. However, Zidane is urging the squad to make this match a win, despite having only won three games in the last eight fixtures.
“No, we always go out to win, we always want to win,” he said. “We can’t think about drawing or losing. All I’m telling you is the most important thing is to give everything on the pitch. We always go out onto the pitch to win.
“Football is physical and mental and the mental part is just as important. My analysis is: this is football. There are moments you are very strong and you can bounce back and there are more difficult moments, like the general situation is now in this world we live in. It’s correct we’re going through a leaner period.
“It was a difficult game but it’s not just Real Madrid. I think every team has had difficulties in this season.
“The team started and ended the game well [against Inter] but it was difficult because we’re playing very good teams. Against Villarreal, the same happened.
“Winning the game until the 74th, 75th minute, but in one play, which can happen, they scored a goal. I’m not a fatalist; I just think this is part of football. We try to work and get better, which is key. We try not to concede and to score goals ourselves.”
