Zidane Dismisses Criticism, Says Real Madrid Is Doing Well in Games

MADRID The coach of Real Madrid defended on Tuesday his team against critics and indicated that he was not worried because his players do very well on the field, though he said they needed to score more.

Speaking at a press conference on the eve of the Champions Leagues group stage match against German side Borussia Dortmund, Zinedine Zidane said he was tired of having to defend his team repeatedly.

I think my team look in good shape but its true we have to score more goals. The situation is not ideal in La Liga because were eight points behind and thats for a reason, but Im relaxed about it because Im sure thats going to change. Were playing ok and I dont care what people are saying on the outside, he said.

I cant change what people think, Im not bothered by it. Its the way it goes in this job. Hard work is the only way to get out of this situation in La Liga and find the goals again. Well keep working at it and Im sure well be there or thereabouts at the end, he added.

Zidane also commented on the criticisms directed at his forward Cristiano Ronaldo, defending the Portuguese star player.

We have to give Cristiano Ronaldo a bit more support and show more respect, but hes fine. Hes so good that when things arent going quite so well for him, people start to talk. The people who love him and Real Madrid know what hes doing: hes working hard until the goals start flowing again, Zidane said.

Regarding the last group stage match of the Champions League, the French coach showed interest in improving the image of his team against Borussia Dortmund.

We know theyve got a lot to play for. Weve already qualified but were focused on giving a good performance. We wont consider our opponents position, well only be looking at ourselves, and that means playing a good match, he said.

Theres no easy draw in the Champions League not matter whether you finish first or second. Whoever we get, itll be tough, and its set to be a fantastic and challenging knock-out round, he added.
