Zidane: Real Madrid contract means nothing after draw

Riyad Mahrez in talks to sign for Liverpool but he wants Arsenal transfer

Riyad Mahrez in talks to sign for Liverpool but he wants Arsenal transfer

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has had experienced a miserable second half of 2018 as his side has put up one of the worst title defences ever in La Liga. It's a real shame because at the start of the season, in the game at Deportivo they were sensational.

After drawing Numancia 2-2 in the second leg of the Copa del Rey, the Frenchman announced in the post-match media conference that he had signed a new deal.

"We are all in this together".

"You can analyze it any way you want it, saying it is a crisis or whatever, but we are here to find solutions", Zidane said. The second half was not good, but we're not going to go insane about it. I don't think beyond that.

Manchester United have been interested in Real Madrid star Gareth Bale for quite some time and the latest reports are intriguing.

Whilst Zidane's refusal to break from the mould that delivered Los Blancos a first La Liga and Champions League double in 59 years has been questioned, much of the fault also lies at Perez's door.

There's little reason to think that Numancia will come back in this tie at the Bernabeu, though with Real Madrid likely to rotate and give more minutes to some of their less-used players, they could make something of it. If we keep losing points we're not going to get there.

"When things go wrong, I am not someone to throw two or three players into the shit. A draw is not the best result, but we'll continue to do our job in a positive way and at some point we'll see the results of this hard work", the Real boss said.

"We can't do anything more, we're trying to play good football, to move the ball around and score goals but it's not coming off". "I believe in my squad and I'll not change", he added. "If it's six months, I'll live those six months to the max". People who say that do not know me. Real Madrid is above me, above everybody.

Real will take on Unai Emery's Paris Saint-Germain in the first knockout round on February 14 and March 6.
