Zinedine Zidane gives Real Madrid a reality check

Vazquez scored his second of the night to record his first Real Madrid brace in 109 appearances for the club, turning home from close range after Borja Mayoral unselfishly headed Marco Asensio's cross into the attacker's path to restore the hosts' lead.

"We've had two spectacular years; thank you for saying so".

"When things get a bit ugly, it is when we need more from everyone, as we do at the moment". Real have slipped a remarkable 16 points behind Barcelona in the Spanish league and sit in the unfamiliar position of fourth in the standings, with their hopes of retaining the title long gone. "There are moments in the season that are hard, but everything is in front of us and we will see what happens between now and the end of the season".

"I'm not protected by what I achieved as a player for this club. And I will continue to believe in what I do until they change me", he concluded.

"I want to show that I can also be a good coach in tough circumstances", Zidane said in an article published on Tuesday in France Football magazine, which gives the award. We will see what happens at the end of the season. Unfortunately, we probably won't be seeing too much of the Spanish midfielder during the second half of the season as Zidane simply does not trust him enough.

Real Madrid have made a decision to sack Zinedine Zidane at the end of the season and are in talks to replace him with Joachim Low, according to reports in Spain. "If it's six months, I'll live those six months to the max". What annoys me more is what you [media] say that I will go to the president. Even though Zidane came out with a "weaker" starting eleven, none of them were from the Real Madrid Castilla side.

"But apart from that I think it was a good game. I will keep doing it until I am out, nothing more".

THIS game takes place on Wednesday, January 10.

Madrid in their UEFA Champions League defense failed to top their group and are destined to face Ligue 1 giants PSG in the round of 16 phase.
