Zidane: It is not an ideal situation

Zinedine Zidane admitted he was far from happy with the performances by Real Madrid in the tour of the United States after the draw with an MLS All-star side, that means they were unable to win any of the four games in normal time.

Poor results

“It is not an ideal situation. It is not right to not win any of the four games. We need to show more and we have not started well. We all now want to go home, rest and think about August 8th.”

Rotations

“I wanted to give everyone minutes, some had played a lot and it was planned that in this game some would not play. We have an important game in less than a week and this one today was not the most important.”

Errors

“It was a little bit of everything, we started badly and that is what happens. It has happened now and what we want now is to get back on track, go home, rest and think about the 8th August. There was not one reason in particular.”

Cristiano Ronaldo

“He had to rest, he’s had his break and it was important. We will see what happens, on the 5th he is with us and we will start preparing with him and the rest of the team.”

Mayoral

“I am happy for Borja as he has had minutes, he is home-grown and know how everything works. He is with us at the moment but before the 31st August anything can happen.”

MLS match

“We are happy with the work that we put in and we came through in the end. I think the MLS is strong as is Madrid, we played against a good side, good players, international players and it is a league which is growing

Bale and Benzema fail to score

“We cannot change this but also it is not so important and just a coincidence. We have had chances and so it is nothing to worry about. We need to concentrate on what is ahead as our official season starts in four days.”
