People spoke of a robbery after the penalty decision…
“It’s embarrassing when people talk about a robbery”.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, has had a similarly disappointing league season, although in completely different ways than Malaga.
The midfielder was angered by Spanish television and radio presenter Juanma Castano after he described the reigning European champions’ controversial victory over the Italian outfit as “a scandal” and “a robbery”, following a late penalty being awarded to Lucas Vazquez’s at the Bernabeu, which sealed Madrid’s passage to the semi final. That has to stop. ‘We can’t change that, but I’ll always defend my players.
Malaga sit in last place in La Liga, and they’re all but relegated with seven matches still to play.
Are you surprised by all the discussion? I didn’t think it could happen, and yet it did. It’s a penalty. So what is it we’re talking about? Getting his Real Madrid side where they are today has been a struggle and hearing accusations of a so-called heist against Juve in the semis must be hurtful for a man who has worked very hard to try and make his team a success. All the talk that has been generated in the last three days is too much.
“We are the best club in the world and when you’re the best club in the world, there is a certain degree of jealousy”.
Do Madrid have an advantage over Bayern? “There are people that are anti-Madrid and we can’t change that”, added Zidane. Zinedine Zidane’s side is all but assured Champions League competition next year by finishing in the top four, but they’re a whopping 15 points behind their rivals Barcelona in first. He’s one part of a great team. Los Blancos are now in fourth place in the league and know that a victory will see them leap-frog Valencia into third place. “I’ve seen them (Malaga) and their position is surprising”.
