On the defeat of Valencia in the 9th round of La Liga, head coach of Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane commented.
“Yes, this is a painful defeat, because we really got off to a great start in the game. The first half-hour was not bad, we scored. But after the return goal, something awful happened,” said Zidane, quoted by As.
“As for the three penalty shots at our goal, the referee has to keep an eye on all this. We conceded three penalties and scored one more time at our gate. All this came down on us. It’s just a lot.”
“I am responsible for this as a coach because I am the one who has to find a way out of this situation. We looked great in the first half, but after the score was tied the game changed dramatically. This is not the first time this has happened to us and I don’t like it.”
