Real Madrid coach, Zidane said he is disappointed with the PSG result, where he blamed his players for their lack of intensity all through the game on Tuesday night.
Zidane who called the 3-0 bashing of his team by PSG as unacceptable, at his post match press conference, said that there is alot of improvement that needs to be done if they truly want to compete. He was also confident saying there is still time for them to turn around the disappointing PSG result, as is just the first game.
Speaking on the game on Tuesday night where his team failed to register a shot on target, he said:
“They have surpassed us in everything, in game, in the average, and what bothers me the most is the intensity. It is complicated if you do not enter strong”
Defensive fragility: “They are good at creating occasions, that is not what worries me, but to see my team without the necessary intensity at this stage of the competition. We knew they were going to press us, but we have almost never entered in the game and we have not created few occasions. We have made two goals but they have been annulled by the VAR “.
The state of Courtois: “Here we are all in the same boat, I will not point to anyone. We must now forget this defeat and focus on the next game, everyone’s fault when it is lost.”
Only two shots between the three sticks and voided: “I did not like that, strange feeling, with the people there were, but we have almost never entered the game. It is not that I am worried but usually with the players we have usually create more occasions. “
The problem of Madrid: I believe that the intensity, when there is a split ball and you put your leg and you can win duels you can win the matches. For me that has been the problem.
PSG without it’s super stars:
“They have been superior and have deserved the victory and we have been worse. If the pace is not good it is very complicated, we have been pressed well” he said.
