Zidane Reflects on Loss to Barcelona

Zidane Reflects on Loss to Barcelona

It`s the morning after the night before and the disappointment of losing, 3-0, at home to Barcelona hasn`t anywhere near eased.

It`s fair to say the defeat wasn`t the manner in which we thought we`d start our festive celebrations in.

After the game, the real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, had a few words for the media, remarking,

'I'm here to make decisions.

'If we had scored in the first half, things would have been different.

'I take responsibility. Everyone seems to think that La Liga is done and dusted but I don't think that it is.'

If it is not then Barcelona will have to suffer the mother-of-all slip-ups.

Continuing, Zidane further added,

'We've got a week to rest up well and we'll come back stronger than before.

'Real Madrid never give in.

'We didn't deserve to lose in this fashion, but that's football and it happens sometimes.

'We aren't in too much of a bad place. Football can change very quickly. This summer Barcelona were on the rocks, now it is us.'

With a tough Champions League knockout tie, against Paris Saint-Germain, on the horizon, Zidane needs to steer Real Madrid off the rocks pretty quickly.
