Zinedine Zidane claims “you’ll have to ask someone else about my future” after admitting he was “disappointed” with Real Madrid’s Derbi draw on Saturday.
Antoine Griezmann’s late goal rescued Atleti 1-1 draw against Madrid, prompting more questions to be asked about Zidane’s position after the game, despite Barcelona’s 2-0 defeat to Malaga ensuring Los Blancos would end the weekend top of La Liga.
“We had a great game but lacked concentration,” explained the Coach.
“It can’t be said that Atletico had a good game, even though we let them back in at the end.
“Pepe’s injury and Kroos’ change? I wanted Isco to defend the left wing and have more of the ball.
“With Pepe, we had no option. But the key was that we didn’t read the last five minutes well enough.
“Griezmann’s goal? We didn’t defend the pass to him well, we were disjointed. We’re all disappointed.
“Bothered not to have won? We’re never bothered, no matter what, I’m disappointed. Still, I’m going to have a smile on my face until the end of the season.
“My future? You’ll have to ask someone else about that, I dedicate myself to working hard and with enthusiasm. I won’t speculate, I take each day as it comes.
“Misses? We lacked the second goal, but now we have to be calm and think about the game on Wednesday.
“Tiredness? I don’t think it was anything physical, but rather a lack of concentration. We needed to defend more closely and with more energy, but physically we’re fine.”
