Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid’s coach, did not hide his frustration after losing two points to Getafe in the Spanish League.
Real Madrid settled for a 0-0 draw in a match that fell short of most of its key players.
Zizou said after the match: “We scored a point, but we lost two points. We always want to win all the matches. The team fought, but the match was complicated. We had two additional surprise absences, but the team gave everything on the field.”
He stressed, “We gave our maximum, it is true that we lacked the decisive offensive and defensive action. We needed more work in the front line. We tied, but we will continue fighting. The competition did not end here.”
He explained, “The physical aspect is a factor in determining the title, but there are many factors that control victory, the most important of which is that your players are available.”
He revealed why Toni Kroos, who was on the bench, was not on the bench: “Kroos had troubles and that is why he did not play. We have a lot of matches and we don’t want to commit foolishness, it must be handled wisely.”
He concluded: “In the next rounds, we need to look at our results, not the results of others. It is a very difficult and very competitive league. We need to appear in the best form every 3 days. We have to fight to the death and not change our mentality.”
Real Madrid settled for raising its balance to 67 points in second place, thus widening the difference with leaders Atlético Madrid to 3 points.
And Real Madrid threatened to lose second place if Barcelona won in their postponed match.
On the other hand, Getafe raised its score to 31 points in the 15th place, only 4 points behind the nearest relegation centers.
