Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has dismissed the idea of leaving the club after his team’s disappointing loss against the Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
Dentinho and Manor Solomon scored second-half goals as
once again after their victory in October.
The defeat against Shakhtar maintained
weak results, who have lost almost half of their games in their last 11 matches in all competitions. The pressure is on like never before for Zidane.
Zidane told reporters after the match, as per Marca:
“I am not going to resign. We have had difficult moments. It is a bad run in terms of results. It is our reality, but we must continue.
“We know that today was a final and we prepared it very well. We had a great first half, but we were not able to score a goal. There is a game left and we have to win it.
“I have strength and I will give it my all as I always do, just like the players. In the league we did not deserve to win the other day but today we do. You have to raise your head and think about the next game. There is no choice but to think ahead and picking up good results.”
Madrid now sit 3rd in Group B table and they will be away at Sevilla in La Liga before they clash with Borussia Monchengladbach at home.
