Zidane Confident After Real Madrid Clear-the-Air Talks

Zidane Confident After Real Madrid Clear-the-Air Talks

After the latest round of results saw Real Madrid fall sixteen points behind he leaders, Barcelona, in the race for the title, it appears words were exchanged behind the scenes.

Commonly known as clear-the-air talks, it is hoped that whatever was said will have done the trick and we can start closing the gap on Barcelona.

At his press-conference ahead of the visit of Villarreal, Zidane spoke in great depth about those talks, remarking to the media,

'I've seen a change in the team since our chat. Now we have to reflect that on the pitch.

'We're not struggling to find our play, we're just lacking the continuity we need to get our confidence back, and we can only find that by winning games.

'Winning is the most important thing and we've found it hard of late, but we'll keep going. We're still alive in every competition and having watched the games back, I don't agree with a lot of the criticism, but I have to accept it. There are still positive elements in this team.

'The difficult thing is to avoid reading and listening to what's being said. That's not at all easy in this day and age but you have to try. All that's being said about Real Madrid at the moment is negative, but I, and many others, don't share that view.

"The situation is what it is, but we must look for positives; we're still alive in every competition. We're not in as bad a place as people say. We need to find that positive energy among the group and keep moving forward.

'I'm not worried about the atmosphere at the Bernabeu. We want people to come and cheer us on, which is what they've always done. We can't focus all on the negative. We need our fans. Just as when we're playing well we need to keep our feet on the ground, when we're going through a tough spell we need them to help us out.'


This Saturday it`s time to get behind the team folks and do our bit to assist.
