Zidane Talks Tough Ahead Of Huesca Clash

 Real Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane has urged the media to respect his achievements amidst the team’s poor performances in the league.

The Blancos are ten points behind Atletico Madrid following a run of disappointing performances.


“What makes me laugh is you ask me why I might be annoyed,” Zidane said in a news conference on Friday. I don’t deserve to be treated like that by the press. We won the league last season and I’d hope for a bit of respect.

“We’ve earned the right to fight for La Liga this season, at least give us the season. Next season, there’ll need to be changes, but this year let us, the team who won the league last season, fight for it this year, too.

“It wasn’t 10 years ago, it was last season. Just show us a little bit of respect for what we’ve achieved. You [the press] say a lot. Why don’t you tell me to my face that you want me out of the club, not just behind my back.”

Zidane was re-appointed in March 2019 following a hugely successful first spell winning three consecutive Champions League trophies.

Real Madrid will be without Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos and Dani  Carvajal for the league clash against Huesca on Saturday.
