Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he was especially glad as his team had enjoyed themselves in winning Sunday evening’s La Liga opener 3-0 at Deportivo La Coruna, with the Frenchman playing down any controversy after captain Sergio Ramos was sent off late on.
“We always try and play, we know we have the players to do that,” Zidane said. “We want to enjoy ourselves and try and play well. The second goal was what we work on, what we want to do.
“When a goal comes out like that, we must all be satisfied. In general we can be happy with what we have done. This not an easy ground to play at. They had their chances at the start of the game to score.”
“I am not happy with what happened with Sergio,” the Frenchman said. “Like always I do not like to lose a player. I do not know [if second yellow was fair or not]. I will have to see the images, I did not see it.
This can happen in football, he jumps for the ball, and the referee sees a foul. That’s it.”
“I want to keep this squad as it is,” he said. “I hope there are no changes. But you never know until the 31st, anything can happen.”
