Every word from the manager and the players from the press conference after the impressive win over Atletico Madrid in the Madrid Derby.
The coach praised his players for their excellent performance on the night against their city rivals. The manager started a front three with Casemiro, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior.
The manager acknowledged the performance of his boys as he rated the display as a high standard. The French manager who was overshadowed by poor results in previous games was excited after watching his side claim a well-deserved victory.
“We produced a great performance from start to finish, especially when you consider that they on a 26-game unbeaten run. We put in an excellent performance, pressed high up, hounded them and we kept the tempo up in the second half. What the players did out there tonight against that opposition means a great deal to me as the coach” said Zinedine Zidane as published by Realmadrid.com.
The expectations were met, since the team’s form has been dwindling, which can be attributed to numerous injuries on top stars like Eden Hazard, Benzema and Sergio Ramos.
