Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid beat Valencia last night to relive some pressure on the French boss.
Zizou said, “We’re going to carry on with what we’re doing. We’re not going to be looking at the others. We’re on a good run and we want to keep going because it’s very important. I’m pleased for them. We played well today, defensively we all read the game very well. Everyone defended very well without the ball and when it came to creating and using the ball, we caused them a lot of problems in the first half and created some very good chances. We have to keep going”.
“The improvement is obvious because we believe in what we’re doing. During a season you sometimes have problems and you have to overcome them. We’re doing that and we have to keep going because there’s still a long way to go”.
He also addressed the injury status in the team:
“As a coach, I don’t understand them. We’ve had a lot of injuries. I’m concerned because when you lose a player it bothers you. It’s an injury he’d recovered from and I’m sorry for Carva because he was feeling fine. He played really well for 25 minutes and he’s an important player for us and I can’t explain all of these injuries”.
“I always want all of my players to be with us. There’s nothing worse for a coach than having an injured player. Carvajal has now gone and hurt himself again a little bit and I hope it’s nothing serious. I can’t tell you anything at all. We’ll have to see what the injury is and how long he’ll be out for”.
