Zidane takes swipe at Ronaldo, "could have done more" — Real Madrid

Zidane takes swipe at Ronaldo,

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane refused to give up on his side's chances of retaining the Liga Santander title when he spoke to the press on Friday.

Added to their misery is their early exit from the Copa del Rey, which has left Champions League qualification as the team's only ray of hope.

Jose Luis Morales ran through on goal as Ramos found himself caught out of position, and although Keylor Navas saved his effort, Boateng met the loose ball with a cool finish into the far corner.

"We're together, even if it's a hard moment".

It has been said that the Real boss did not dare to sign or part ways with anyone during the winter window in order to avoid souring the atmosphere in the dressing room.

Was Ronaldo's change planned? I have always noticed that my players are concentrated and get stuck in, and I trust my staff, blindly. I'm here to think about the here and now, to prepare my team for league matches.

The highs of last season remain a distant memory for Madrid as they now languish 19 points behind rivals and league leaders Barcelona, while an embarrassing exit from the Copa del Rey at the hands of Leganes has left Madrid's trophy hopes resting exclusively on the Champions League.

Recently, Zidane admitted that his future at the Santiago Bernabeu will rest on the double leg tie with the Ligue 1 leaders but the boss now insists that his only focus right now is on the upcoming La Liga clash with Levante.

"I don't care about what happens next season". Los Blancos' season - and the future of numerous group's individuals - will now be defined by their Champions League campaign, which will be renewed in less than two weeks with the first leg of the mouth-watering last sixteen tie with Paris Saint-Germain. I look at the last game that we did in Valencia.

"We can play with the three up front, as that is where Cristiano, Karim and Gareth have always played and always performed".

"If we only think of PSG then that is wrong". We must use these games before to recover our confidence. We have played two league games and we have scored 11 goals.

"Most importantly, he needs the rhythm of the match".

One of the main catalysts of Real Madrid's form has been Bale's return to fitness and Zidane hinted that, while the Welshman is still in the recovery phase, he will surely get better game by game, hinting that he is likely to start again, with Marco Asensio on the bench.
