Zidane: Critics can say anything

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has accused critics of his team of having short memories, saying he had not forgotten their recent achievements.
In May, Madrid became the first team to retain the Champions League in its current format and won the Liga trophy for the first time in five seasons, but are currently fourth in the table — eight points behind leaders Barcelona — with their fewest points at this stage for almost a decade.

Despite progressing in the Champions League and Copa del Rey, some of their performances have been criticised.

And speaking at a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s final Group H game at home to Borussia Dortmund, with his team having qualified, Zidane said: “I repeat myself a lot, say the same thing every three days, and even I get tired of it.

“I see my team playing well — we could score more goals, yes, and the situation is not the best as we are eight points back [in La Liga].

“But I know this will change sooner or later. We must keep doing our work, not throw away what we have done.

” Madridismo, the people who love us, have not forgotten what this team has done, me neither. Others can say whatever they want.”

Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has scored only two La Liga goals this season compared with 10 at the same stage last season, but is the Champions League’s top scorer with eight strikes in five games.
