Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane commented on the exit Real Madrid From the King’s Cup after Loss of the third division team Alkoyano on Wednesday eveningAnd he held himself responsible.
Real Madrid fell and deposited the tournament with a two-to-one loss after entering additional times, a result that opened the door to criticism again for the French coach.
“I think you should ask the players if they are still supporting me,” Zidane said at the meeting’s press conference. “I think they support me. We did some good things but not much recently.”
He continued: “But far from the last meetings, we did good things this season. We must focus on what can be done. When you lose, everyone talks. I take responsibility and this is what should happen.”
Zidane added, “I feel calm, the players wanted to win, sometimes we try to do some different things, and we must bear the responsibility, and as usual I will. The players tried and if we scored the second goal it would be a different match.”
And he added: “This is football. The goalkeeper made several saves and did not allow us to score, but leaving the tournament is my responsibility. The players gave everything. We are going through a difficult moment.”
He concluded: “When you play against a third-class team, you must win and we do not. It is not a scandal. Sometimes it happens in the world of football, but we will not go crazy and we will continue to work and I will take responsibility.”
Real Madrid’s defeat is the second tournament they lose this season, after their previous exit from the Spanish Super Cup at the hands of Athletic Bilbao this week.
