Zinedine Zidane Had A Foul Mouthed Review Of Real's Latest Loss

Zinedine Zidane Had A Foul Mouthed Review Of Real's Latest Loss

It's hard to believe that Real Madrid, the champions of Spain and Europe, are currently lying in fourth place in La Liga after 18 games, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona and 10 behind city rivals Atletico, yet Zinedine Zidane's men have slumped from one poor result to the next over the last five months.

And yesterday afternoon, things got even worse for Los Blancos, as they succumbed to a 1-0 home loss to Villarreal, their third home defeat of the season.

Should Barcelona emerge victorious from their clash with Real Sociedad at Anoeta tonight, it will mean that Real are actually closer to the relegation zone than they are to the La Liga leaders, with a Barca win opening up a 19 point gap between the El Clasico rivals.

And yesterday's result against Villarreal prompted a foul mouthed review from manager Zinedine Zidane who, simply, described the result as 'fucked up'.

"It's very difficult for the confidence.

"We had chances to score but in the end... we couldn't avoid the counter and... it's just very fucked up for all the players.

"What we have to do is keep working, because there will come a time and we have to be there.

"Within all the negative things that are happening to us, we are going to look for something positive."

With La Liga almost an impossibility at this point, the Champions League looks to be Real's main priority now, although progress in the competition they've won for the last two years won't be easy, as Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and co. await Real in the last 16, with Zidane's men set to take on Paris Saint-Germain.

Will Zizou see the season out at the Bernabeu?
