Zidane: La Liga the most difficult league

La Liga is the strongest league in the world and ‘more difficult than anywhere else’ according to Real Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane.

The Frenchman was speaking about his own side’s form this season and believes the strength of Spain’s domestic league helps their clubs in European competition.

“I don’t think we’ve lost confidence and we trust in what we’re doing,” Zidane told a press conference on Monday.

“Other people from outside the club might have doubts but that has no impact on us and we don’t listen to that, we know that sometimes we are not brilliant and inevitably people will say things because we are Real Madrid.

“La Liga is the most difficult league to play in – I watch a lot of European football not none are as difficult as Spain is, so we have to maintain our high level.

“We focus on playing good football and creating chances, for games like this (Borussia Dortmund) we must also deal with their attacks.”
