Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has defended his team’s style of play, insisting that he does not plan to change his coaching methods anytime soon amid recent criticism.
Real Madrid attackers have not contributed to any of the club’s six league goals this year and they found it hard to create chances vs Real Valladolid at Estadio Jose Zorrilla in their latest clash.
Speaking on this recently, Zidane, who agreed that they were lucky in their last game, revealed that he is happy to continue grinding out victories like that as long as they keep getting the 3 points.
He added that every manager has his own style of play and fans just want to see the players get on the pitch and give their all.
His words, “I don’t think the Bernabeu would accept a thousand passes without a shot,”
“Everyone has their own style of play. I played at the Bernabeu and what the fans want to see is their team give their all on the field. It has always been that way.
“When fans see the team sweat for the shirt, that’s the most important thing in the end because you can’t always win.
“I always say the same – I will not change. The important thing is the club have given me the chance to train these players. It is a great team and I am lucky to be here.
“Two months ago things were not going well and there was a lot of criticism – that is not going to change. What we want is to continue what we are doing.”
“I don’t think it’s a lack of motivation,”
“I think the motivation is very high.
“We must accept that Madrid have won 13 Champions Leagues and we want to change our history in the Copa del Rey.
“Zaragoza are going to make it difficult for us. We want to give our all on the field. We will not be surprised by them because we know it will be difficult – it is always that way.”
On injuries, “I have a list of players and later you will see. Everyone wants to be available for the coach.
“Hazard has started working on the pitch again, but not yet with the team. We will see this week how he is managing his recovery.
“Before attacking, we must defend and be intense, we are doing quite well but you always have to be ready to prove it.”
