Zidane: We have to play better

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane gave a frank assessment of his side after the 1-1 draw with Levante and admitted they had to do better.

Lucas Vazquez equalised after Levante went ahead and Marcelo was sent off late on.

“We cannot be happy with the game, now we are four points off the pace and we have to be worried,” said Zidane.

“We need to find some solutions. We lacked a lot today in the game. The start is very important and we did not start well today.

“We faced a team that defended deeply and in these situations you have to show more. You need to score first but it was they who went ahead and that is what annoyed me most.

“However, we cannot go crazy and now we need to look ahead to the next game.

“It is not a physical problem as we showed in that we were better after the break. The problem was that we did not find ways to score.”

He says that he will continue with his policy of rotations.

“I will not change this. After one bad game we cannot lose the plot and this is something I believe in,” he said.

“This is the side that we have and we need to find solutions within the squad. Cristiano and Benzema were not there and we could not change that.”
