Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has tried to deflect attention from his side’s recent poor showing by stating that the La Liga is the best in the world.
The La Liga Santander defending champions are currently in sixth position on the table, having drawn with Levante and Valencia, and losing all three points to Real Betis at the Bernabeu courtesy of a dying minutes winner from Tonny Sanabria
When asked if he was worried about his side’s recent showing as they prepare for a champions league tie with Borussia Dortmund, he seemed unfazed.
“La Liga is the most difficult league to play in – I watch a lot of European football not none are as difficult as Spain is, so we have to maintain our high level.
“I don’t think we’ve lost confidence and we trust in what we’re doing,” Zidane told a press conference on Monday.
“Other people from outside the club might have doubts but that has no impact on us and we don’t listen to that, we know that sometimes we are not brilliant and inevitably people will say things because we are Real Madrid.
He may have also pointed out that other teams took adopted a defensive strategy when they came up against his side by saying:
“We focus on playing good football and creating chances, for games like this (Borussia Dortmund) we must also deal with their attacks.”
