Zidane Blasts Real Madrid After Super Eagles Star Nets Twice



Zinedine Zidane has blasts Real Madrid team after Super Eagles forward Emmanuel Dennis nets twice in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night at Santiago Bernabeu.
The 21-year-old Nigeria international then completed his brace half an hour later, showing his pace and composure to get the better of Thibaut Courtois in the Los Blancos goal but the home side bounced back and equalised in the second half with goals from Sergio Ramos and Casemiro.Zidane that he hauled off former Chelsea keeper Courtois at halftime and replaced him with Areola, who joined PSG in the summer told Marca: “The first goal we have conceded was laughable,” Zidane said.”We started badly, and from the 10th minute we were not concentrated in the areas where the opponent could hurt us.”When they scored the first, they got a boost and we were even worse, and they scored the second.”I insist that I’m glad about the second half, [it was] a bad result but good reaction.”We can’t be happy; we played 45 minutes completely different to the other.
“I’m happy with the reaction, although I’m not happy with the point.”Zidane went on to reveal what he told his players at half-time.”I told them that we have 45 minutes to change this, and they changed it,” he added.”They went out with more attitude and wanted to take over the game.”Real Madrid have collected just one point from their first two Champions League games and Zidane acknowledged that his side’s situation in Europe is not ideal.”We have the next league game and we know that we are in a slightly worse situation in the Champions League, but we will continue [fighting],” he noted.Los Blancos will now turn their attention to La Liga encounter as Real Madrid welcome newly-promoted side Granada on Saturday before international break
