Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has said he felt the team he put out vs Real Sociedad for their 4-3 Copa del Rey quarter-final loss was good enough to get the job done.
Some of the players Zidane featured on the night were either not good enough or had little influence or impact.
However, reacting after the game, Zizou said a team that had Ramos, Kroos, Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema had enough talent to seal the victory.
He added that Real Sociedad simply played better and punished his team.
His words, “I put out a team that thought I could do well,”
“I don’t think we were wrong with the team, but there is a rival who played very well and that has cost us.
“Here we are all together, when you win and when you lose.”
“The second half was better than the first and we tried until the end,” he said.
“Even when it was 1-4 we tried. The opponent played very well and in the first half we had a lot of difficulty with their pressure. We also had defensive mistakes.”
“This hurts, yes, you have to tell the truth,”
“But you have to think about Sunday. You have to recover because the effort has been great.”
