Sport: Madrid Coach, Zidane Pleads For Backing Team Fans | Main News

By Jagalo Faven

Real Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane urged team fans to stay on side as he recognises the Madrid are under more pressure this term because of last season’s troubles it faces.

Real Madrid played their first home match of the 2019-20 campaign on Saturday but were held to a shock 1-1 draw by Real Valladolid.

When they finished last season 19 points adrift of Barcelona, the coach knows the pressure has increased again this season and he is demanding that fans to lend their backing.

When asked if the team is under more scrutiny because of last term, Zidane said: “I noticed it at the Bernabeu – the crowd [feels the pressure] too.

“The fans also have to help us. There’s no choice. I know it is difficult, but I’m asking because they have also taken advantage of our successes. We will try everything on our part.”

He also felt his side deserved a better result than the draw on Saturday, though he admits it was a mistake from Madrid that allowed Valladolid to pull level late on.

According to him,”They have a bad feeling because they did the hardest thing, to score the goal in the second half, when the team were not playing well,” Zidane said. “And with three or four minutes remaining they tied us.”
