It’s been a difficult week for Zinedine Zidane, however, following Saturday’s victory over Valencia , he made clear that he won’t change his approach.
Two penalties from Cristiano Ronaldo set Los Blancos on their way, although it must be noted that Valencia were surprisingly poor in comparison to their performances throughout the campaign.
“I will always be questioned, every day, but I won’t change,” he explained in his post-match press conference.
“I will continue working in the way I have.
“We must congratulate everyone involved today.”
Rotation has been problematic for the former Juventus midfielder this term, and injuries to key senior figures haven’t always made this possible, however Zidane feels his team are approaching their physical peak.
“We’re physically very good, sometimes it’s more psychological than physical,” he intimated.
“I’m very happy with our performance; we played the game very well tactically.
“We deserved the victory, especially for our start to the match.”
Whilst it will be difficult to save Los Blancos’ season from this point, Zidane believes that with such a vast amount of football left to come this term, his team will continue to fight.
“The good thing about football is that you have so many matches,” he confirmed.
“The situation was difficult and we played with a lot of personality.
“We are going to keep fighting because there is a lot of the season left.”
