Zidane after the victory: I want to thank the supporters


Zinedine Zidane was very happy after the clear victory against Real Sociedad on Sunday. Los Blancos didn’t have the possession of the ball and they play in the counter attack in their own stadium. However, the manager was satisfied with the game: “At the start of our game we tried to pressure, but we did it in a disorganized way I wasn’t happy. For this reason we changed in the second half. We played closer to our goal and make counter attacks. Eusebio is right, sometimes the possession is not everything”, Zizou analyzed.

Barcelona, Sevilla and Atlético de Madrid failed to win, so the three points are even more important: “It’s a very important victory for us, after the tough days. It’s been a completed match, against a difficult rival. It’s important not to concede any goal. Besides, the results were positive for us”, the manager told in press conference.

The French star was also very happy with the supporters: “We have to thank Santiago Bernabéu. Sometimes the whistles bother us, but today they’ve been great and all together we’ve got something big. I want to thank the supporters”.

Despite not having the possession, according to Zidane the result was “fair”: “We didn’t concede any chances and this is very important. Defensively we’ve been very focus although in the first half we pressured bad. But we rectify in the second half and that’s it. When they were with 10 players was easier”.

Finally, Zinedine Zidane wanted to speak about Mateo Kovacic, the best player of the game: “I’m happy with him. Every time he plays he does well. Today he scored one goal and I liked it. In the future he can do it better. Having a player of his level is great for Real Madrid”, Zidane said in the press conference. Finally, he announced some good news: “Bale is already in the pitch with the boots”.
