Disappointed with Real Madrid signing, Zidane demands another

Disappointed with Real Madrid signing, Zidane demands another

Real Madrid's faltering title defence continued as they were held to a thrilling 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo on Sunday which saw them fall 16 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona, who beat Levante 3-0 to stay nine points clear at the top of La Liga. "Even now that we have a bit of difficulty, and because I remember that past year I did not get these kind of questions", Zidane said during press conference.

Gareth Bale scored twice for Real Madrid against Celta Vigo.

Keylor Navas then saved a second-half penalty from Iago Aspas before Maxi Gomez nodded Celta level with just eight minutes left. "I am the first one responsible".

"We are all a little angry with the result".

'They're key players and seeing that they're ready for these next games makes me happy'.

After the match Zidane played down talk of a crisis.

"We'll try to work hard and fight so we can win our next game but we don't like this situation at all, it's difficult because the more games you draw or lose the more pressure you are under".

If Catalonia becomes independent and Barcelona are booted out of La Liga and cannot persuade another major league (France, Italy, Germany or England) to give them a home, Messi could leave without having to pay his 700 million euro ($843 million) buyout clause, said El Mundo.

"We played very well in the first 45 minutes but not in the second half and a game lasts 90 minutes".

"We're sad and we're f****** sunk", Marcelo said after the match.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has insisted that he has no "need" for a new goalkeeper, despite reports suggesting that the club are on the verge of bringing in Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.

"We're trying to get out of this mess and we're working to do that, but we don't like this at all".
