Zidane: "What do you want, that we leave the season?"

The Real Madrid coach, after the elimination of the Super Cup: "It is not a failure. Failure is not trying, not giving everything on the field. Life is like that, you can't always win."


Zinedine Zidane appeared in the #Vamos flash interview to analyze the elimination of Real Madrid in the semifinal of the Super Cup against Athletic (1-2). These are the impressions of the French coach.

Defeat: “Our first half was difficult, we didn't get into the game well, they scored two goals. It is what they had, two occasions and two goals. It has been complicated. When you are 0-2 it is always difficult. Then we had a better second half, we created chances, we had several clubs, a goal ... But the second could not be scored. ”

In the first part it goes wrong. What is missing? “We have failed to read our beginning of the match well, we had to skip the lines and we did nothing, they pressed. We lost two or three balls that are not usual. ”

Asymmetric drawing of the first minutes: “We changed it because Luka's position was not comfortable. Then we change at 20 minutes. ”

Mariano enters for Benzema: “We were looking for a bit of freshness, same players, same characteristics… I was happy with what Karim has done” .

He is concerned about the team dynamics: “No, what we are going to do is keep working, there is no other option. When things go well for you, you have to keep working to insist and now the same. Now, to rest well and think about the next game. There is no other. We tried it in the second part and that's it. ”

You can invoice the team: “No. What do you want, that we leave the season? ".

I say that now there may be more noise: "Yes, yes, as always, but we are not going to stop thinking about ourselves, there is no other" .

He then appeared at a press conference.

Is the elimination of Madrid fair? "Our start of the game was complicated, the first half was not good. They had two chances and they got them. The second was different, in 20 minutes we changed because I didn't like the drawing, we returned with Hazard on the left and Marco on the right and we were better. We hit the post, chances, we scored a goal .. But we still needed to draw. "

How did you see Hazard? "He must regain confidence, play a good game, score a goal, something different. We know the player he is and we have to be patient, but he is working. We are with him, we have to be patient. The team has tried, we started badly and You have to turn the page and think about what we do. To our business, in good times and bad, keep working to get it done ".

But can people get tired of waiting for you? "I don't think so, what people want is to see the best version of Eden and you have to be patient. We are with him, he wants to move this forward. It is not only Eden today, we are all here. in the second best and he also improved. But it was not enough ".

Is it a failure to drop eliminated? "It is not a failure. Failure is not trying, not giving everything on the field. Life is like that, you can't always win. What we always try to do is win, but you can't always" .

Are you worried about the team's losing streak? "We had a good run and now it's two draws and one loss, it's true. We have to keep working to change the dynamics quickly. The outside will be the same as always, what we can do is keep working and move this forward as a team."
