Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says the race for the La Liga title isn’t over yet after watching his side demolish Espanyol 6-0.
Ronaldo scored a hat trick with the other goals coming from Karim Benzema, James Rodriguez and a Duarte own goal to move Los Blancos just a point behind Atletico de Madrid in the table and four behind leaders Barcelona. The Catalan outfit still have a game in hand over the them too.
Speaking to reporters after the game, the French boss said his team could still improve and will not be giving up the the title race just yet.
“Scoring five or six goals isn’t easy but we can further improve. We had a good game. The youngsters have surprised me. The aim is to play at our best, at our full potential in each and every game and leaving no chances to win the league. La Lia isn’t over. I have hopes for the league still. We win as a group. Not because of two or three players. We win together,” he told the media.
He added: “We’re four points behind now from the top and that could become seven even but we must focus what we must do and our position to win most. Atletico de Madrid and Barcelona don’t concern me. We’re going to Granada next and that’s what I’m focused on.”
