Zinedine Zidane has hailed the 3-0 win over Villarreal last night as a ‘phenomenal’ win for his players and says Real Madrid will keep fighting for La Liga.
Having seen Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid win before them, Los Blancos went into the game under huge pressure against the high flyers to respond immediately and close the gap on the top two back to just one point.
Goals from Karim Benzema, Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric ensured the three points and keeps the pressure up on those above them.
Speaking to reporters after the match, Zidane said: “We keep doing things well, working hard. The team were phenomenal from the first minute to the last. We attacked well, created chances and retrieved a lot of balls. Defensively it was an almost perfect game”.
“I’m very happy with everyone’s attitude, with our team and satisfied with our players. It is great to have a squad like this to work with. We will keep playing against tough teams, but if we keep playing as we did tonight we will achieve great things. Obviously in every game we face tough moments, but I’m very satisfied with my team because I see them improving every day.”
Asked about the situation in La Liga, he added: “Nothing has changed, we are one point away from them. We will keep going with our ideas and our football. We will continue with what we have been doing recently, nothing has changed.”
