Zidane Lauds Madrid’s Patience As They Return To Top Of The Log — www.exclusives.com.ng
Zinedine Zidane has praised his Madrid team for remaining patient in the match against Real Betis, as they won 2-1.
The match was looking to end in a draw, until Sergio Ramos saved the blushes of the Los blancos by heading in an 81st minute header.
Barcelona had lost 2-1 earlier in the day to Deportivo la Coruna, and it was left to Madrid yo take advantage of that. Zidane’s men did that we’ll, with Ronaldo scoring one too.
“My evaluation of the match is very good because we picked up the three points,” Zidane said.
We didn’t have it all our own way and that’s normal, but I am happy. We must congratulate all the players because we’ve had to be patient. The result in the end is a fair one, even if at times it didn’t all go our way.
“The opposition played in their own half, they defended well and caused us problems on the counter-attack. We’re happy with the result and we must congratulate the players because it wasn’t easy. The pressure is there, it doesn’t end here, there’s still a lot to play for and we know that.”
