Zidane: Legia draw my fault

Zinedine Zidane admits Real Madrid’s 3-3 draw with Legia Warsaw on Wednesday is “my fault” as Los Blancos “lacked a bit of everything”.

Madrid fell to second in Champions League Group F after they threw away a two-goal lead at an empty Polish Army Stadium and only picked up a point courtesy of Mateo Kovacic’s late strike, leaving Zidane unhappy with both his and his side’s performance.

“I’m not surprised with how the game went,” the Coach told Spanish TV, reports UEFA’s official website.

“It was a strange match and what we expected didn’t happen, either in the game or in our performance.

“We lacked a bit of everything. When you score twice you can’t take your foot off the gas, that’s what we did and they scored.

“Then it was a very hard game. It’s my fault, but in the end we didn’t lose and that’s good.

“There’s a lot to analyse. When you go 2-0 up you need to think more and be more closed but we didn’t do that and they could counter us.

“They scored and made the game more difficult for is. What we’ll do is forget about this game and think in the weekend.

“This makes finishing top more difficult, but we’ll see. For us it doesn’t matter, we can still finish first and we’ll battle to do so.”
