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.
“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.
