Last quote by Zinadine Zidane

I cannot be happy. We are disappointed with the result. When you get back to 2-2 with 10 men you have to think a little more and defend together. We thought that we could grab a third goal. From a throw in we were out of position and then what happened happened. Playing to push up when we have 10 men is dangerous and there was room for us to do something else.feedback

Zinadine Zidane quotes

For us it is a very important game, we have to produce another big performance to try and win it.feedback

I think it is the DNA of this club. The history of the club, the way we know that we have to give everything. The more difficult the game, the more we give. I think it is just part of the club, the way that we are. For that reason we are very happy when these games come at the end of the season. We like playing these key games to win titles. Yes, that makes them more dangerous - you are talking about a relegation battle. They are still a first division team. Perhaps they have had difficulties throughout the season but in a single game they can do some damage.feedback

I'm not certain I'm going to continue here, not at all, and that's why I'm not preparing anything, I'm working for what I have left to do this season. I know what it's like to coach Real Madrid for better or worse and I'm prepared for everything. He has had a huge impact here, he brought positivity when he arrived and took us in a new direction.feedback

You have to ask someone else [about my future], not me. We played a great game, but we missed five minutes in concentration. We had a great game and we had to score the second goal. The second goal would have given us more peace of mind. We have had opportunities to do so. I think we lost two points, we deserved a little more. Football is like that, but we are not going to change anything. There's going to be a race for the league until the end.feedback

If Madrid ask us about Theo, the answer would be energetic and determined. Theo is our player, on loan at Alaves, but our player.feedback

That's what he trains for, he's been training very well. He's ready for the final stretch of the season. But not just the big games, any game he plays in he wants to score and be a big player for his team. It's very positive for everyone, the energy that he generates. There's no special plan. We just speak to Cristiano and that's it, like we do with all of them. I speak to all the players about what we're going to do. It's important that the players understand what we're doing. They're intelligent players, they know my idea and we're all together.feedback

The idea is to get to the end of the season in the best possible physical shape. I think when Cristiano or Gareth [Bale] don't play we know it's because there are a lot of games coming up and the other players who are training, I know what they can bring to the team. Every game is a story in itself. We know that. That's why we go game by game. Hopefully we are going to end the season very well.feedback

Yes of course, it's not a controversy. It's what happens with a manager, it happens in football.feedback

It is clear that I am happy, but it is because I have a great squad.feedback

I have not spoken with him - it is normal that a player wants to play the full 90 minutes. These are things that happen and that is it. I don't have anything against James, quite the opposite. It happens with Karim [Benzema] too. I am happy with him and it is normal that he is annoyed to be substituted. He played well and I am pleased with that. I do things for the good of the team, I understand his annoyance but he is going to keep being important. All of the players have it tough. We need everyone. You talk about substitutes and starting players, but we are all in the same boat together.feedback

Theo is a good player. No doubt about that. But nothing else. I am focused on what I must do with my players, nothing else.feedback

At the time of the second goal we had difficulties and had been losing possession, but then the ball arrived at Cristiano [Ronaldo], he passed to Isco and we scored.feedback

Of course I want him to renew because he is a Real Madrid player and an important player for our team. The only thing he wants is to be here and play here. I'm delighted for the game he had. He did well playing between lines, he made the rest of the team play, he put in a very complete performance. We know that at any moment we can do damage to our opponent – that is what this team has. What you need to be aware of is that every three days we have an important game. After that, everyone can think what they like.feedback

To be able to win the Liga or the Champions League, every single player in the squad is important. The players know that and that is why when Isco plays, he plays well.feedback

But there are 24 of us in this squad and everyone is important.feedback

He's an iconic player. I am delighted if he can do something big here. I don't know when, but this is his home.feedback

Sergio is going to rest and that's a decision by the boss. He has played a lot and all the players here are very important. Cristiano [Ronaldo] has four yellow cards. But we do not look at that. It's important he plays as always. We will see how we manage it. I hope he stays with four until the end of the season. We know that there is a final stretch where everything is played and we are prepared for the two challenges: LaLiga and Champions League. Pique talks, then I can say something, then it goes back and forth. I don't get into this. Madrid is a big club, serious club.feedback

With two words, the subject is over, I cannot tell you any more. Let me always answer the same. I hope it's the last question, because I'm going to answer the same thing. Raul could easily end up here as a coach. He is obsessed with football too and could end up coaching. But who knows when.feedback

We have a lot of games this month. We are going to need all the players and we are ready for the final stretch. It's the same as always, they are all important and everyone knows that they are important, sure there will be some who will play more than others, but what I value is that everyone works and contributes every day until the end of the season.feedback

To be honest, I don't think it's possible. You've named three clubs that are different to the rest, particularly because of the footballers they have.feedback

If I ever leave, it'll be after winning a championship. You need to go out on a high so that people remember you for the right reasons.feedback

We know Athletic will not give up until the end and they cause us some problems. They got a goal in the second half when they were playing well. It was important to win - we're still on a good run. There are 11 games left, we're top, but that means nothing. We know there are still difficult games left.feedback

I don't think he was ready to travel and play with the French national team because he's just getting back from injury and he's not 100 per cent yet. I think it was for the best that he's going to stay here with us.feedback

He almost signed for Real Madrid but then he went to Monaco. I can't speak about this. We know he's a good player, what he's doing at his age is fantastic, but that's it. What I'm interested in is what we are going to do tomorrow. But he was about to sign here, yes. It's a magnificent friendly. I remember that famous game in 1998… and to be able to play and score in the Stade de France was special. France are getting back to their best. It's going to be a great game. We know that Spain have been European and world champions but so have France.feedback

This is what I live for, these kind of moments. When I was a player, these were the kind of games I loved to play in. There's a lot of respect between both managers. We're very happy to come up against a big club like Bayern.feedback

We've got these two challenges, there's nothing else. Five games to try and get to a final and 12 games to win the league.feedback

There's no easy games. I know we're up against a really tough opponent. That's what we've got, there's nothing we can do about that.feedback

They're not going to be scared either. They have a very strong team, they're doing very well. It's going to be a great game for the fans and the world of football.feedback

I'm just smiling. We know now there's no such thing as hot balls in the draw.feedback

Anything can happen, you need to know the team that's going to play, the players. It's not how we set up, it's the attitude that's the most important thing and the dedication we're going to put into the game.feedback

Well, it's true that coming up against Ancelotti will be special. I've learned a lot by his side. He's a coach who did great things at this club and he's also a great person as well. I've had the fortune to get to know him closely. I'm happy that we're going to come up against each other because it's going to be a great game. Both of them! Honestly. I learned here it's good to win everything, so I'm sorry, but I'm going to say I'm as excited for the Champions League as I am for trying to win the league.feedback

He was involved in all four goals. I am very happy with his performance, for his goals and for the other things he did in his build-up play. I am happy with the great game that he has had, but for the ball to get to him the rest of the players have to do well and they did. I am happy with the reaction. In a season, there are lots of different moments and a team can't always play well. But we have played very well here, with intensity. We came in with a high tempo and this is important.feedback

Real Madrid started very well, we scored three goals in half an hour. We knew that it would be a tough pitch to play on. We played a serious game, always respecting our opponent.feedback

It is true that we have many matches and therefore we must take into account every minute of the players. It is a form of resistance, we must suffer. We will not win easy matches. Every three days is a final. We must be constant and continue with this dynamic - that is important.feedback

Varane has hurt himself in the same place. It's not as strong as it was three weeks ago and hopefully it will be short. We will evaluate [on Monday]. From time to time he hurts something and I do not know if it is mental or something else. What I can tell you, to defend him is also that he has played many matches, won a Champions League title, he has done very good things. And he must first think that, because it is difficult.feedback

He always unlocks situations with defenders or giving decisive passes. He is always in the action, generates chances. He is ready and I am very happy for him and that in this final stretch of the season we can count on players who are important and do well.feedback

He had a very long and complicated injury. Now it is a matter of decompensation and things come out. They are not very big things but it prevents you from being 100 per cent or a level for the matches that we have. I hope it is not psychological. What I think and believe is that it is not serious. He told me, he does not think it's serious. He had his recovery time, he was ready. I talk a lot with the players and I always like that they are 100 per cent to play. Before the match Varane was 100 per cent ready. Things can happen, but I hope it's nothing serious.feedback

Why put another layer of gold paint on the Bentley when you are losing the entire engine?feedback

We have a lot of games this month. We are going to need all the players and we are ready for the final stretch.feedback

It's the same as always, they are all important and everyone knows that they are important, sure there will be some who will play more than others, but what I value is that everyone works and contributes every day until the end of the season.feedback

We had the chance to score at the very start, but what I want to do now is to watch the match and analyse it. I am not going to go crazy about it because everything we have done lately has been positive. But with this match we cannot be happy. I cannot be happy.feedback
