Zinedine Zidane: We need to improve our performances


Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says his side must improve if they are to be successful after watching them grab a late win over Las Palmas.

Los Blancos had Casemiro to thank for grabbed the 90th minute winner after Willian Jose scored for the hosts with three minutes to go. Captain Sergio Ramos had given Real a first half lead but was sent off in injury time at the end of the game after picking up a second yellow card.

Real remain four points behind second-placed Atletico de Madrid and 12 points behind leaders Barcelona and are eyeing Champions League glory to end a disappointing season on a high.

Speaking at his press conference after the game, Zidane said: “The most important thing is we got three points and we’ll have to see what happens. We lost a very high number of balls. I don’t think it was unfair. We won the game with two set pieces and that’s part of football. Las Palmas played very well. They made it difficult for us with players who control the ball well. What bothers me is our performance.

And the Frenchman added: “If we want anything from what’s coming up we have got to play better, that’s for sure. Like this we’ll get nowhere. Playing like in the second half, no. That’s all I can say at the moment. I want to see it and I’m convinced that we can play another way.”
