Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has explained why he reacted the way he did at his players during the clash against Granada on Monday evening.
Real Madrid had a decent first half with the League leaders having a two-goal lead against the host at the Nuevo Los Carmenes stadium.
Real Madrid lost the control of the game in the second half and Granda seemed to be growing in confidence as they attack Los Blancos from all angles, “I shouted because I was happy and because you suffer in football,” Zidane said afterwards.
“It was normal to shout because they were three very important points.
“I shouted to tell my players that they’d have an impressive game.
“I’m happy for them.”
Los Blancos dug deep in the second period as Granada went in search of an equaliser.
“We had a very good first half, impressive with the ball,” Zidane added.
“The second half wasn’t as good but that’s because our opponents played.
“To get somewhere in LaLiga, you have to suffer a bit and we came through it was a team.
“We have to be proud of the team.
“We’ve got two games left and we haven’t won anything yet.
“That’s the reality, but there are six points left.
“When we started the season, we wanted to win LaLiga, but it hasn’t arrived just yet.”
Real Madrid will host Villarreal in their last game at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium in this campaign before their trip to Leganes for the last game of the campaign.
