Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says he is not ready throwing in the towel despite Sunday’s disappointing draw against Malaga away from home.
A Cristiano Ronaldo header put Real Madrid ahead but the Galacticos couldn’t ultimately slipped up at La Rosaleda in a game which began at a frantic pace as Raúl Albentosa drew level to deny Zidane and his troop maximum points.
Zidane reflected on the game against Málaga at La Rosaleda and had this to say:
“Today we dropped two points, but we’ll never throw the towel in. There are still a lot of points to play for, there are 38 points to play for, and we’re going to keep going. It was a difficult game. We’re not going to relax, for me there’s no such thing. We’ve got La Liga and the Champions League and we’re going to fight right until the end.
“There are points at stake and there’s still a long way to go in the Liga season. The other teams can drop points, but I’m not thinking about the other teams. I’m just thinking about us carrying on regardless of what happens. We prepared well during the week and I’m going to have to analyse the game. The players put a lot of effort in today. The game was there to be won and it’s true that they fashioned a lot of chances against us.
“We also played away from home in our last Champions League game. It was tough, but we won. Today it was also difficult and we had the chance to have won. I need to analyse it with my team and reflect on it. With hard work and all working together we can achieve something. You think that La Liga is lost, but I don’t and certainly the players don’t.” Zidane told the club’s official website.
