Spain: Managers react after Real Madrid held to draw by Valladolid

Spain, Madrid
August 25, 2019 at 00:33 GMT +00:00 · Published

Real Madrid and Real Valladolid managers appeared at a post-game news conference in the Spanish capital on Saturday. Real Madrid was held to a 1-1 draw after a late equaliser.

"We scored, which is the most difficult, and then we should have booted the ball away, honesty. We had just a few minutes left but it was not possible to keep the result. We know we need to improve playing 90 minutes. We cannot be playing just 50 or 60 minutes," said Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, seemingly disappointed with the result.

After two games, Real Madrid is on the second spot with four points in La Liga's table behind Sevilla which won both starting matches.

SOT, Real Valladolid manager Sergio Gonzales (Spanish): "I think in the second half we lost the fear of being in possession of the ball. We have combined and created better situations. And we were better established until Benzema's genius goal came in, with a good control of the game. From that moment the match was progressing and we obtained the goal necessary to tie. And we are happy with it".

SOT, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane (Spanish): "Yes. It is not that we just lost the ball. That's something that could happen at any time or in any place of the pitch. However, we were defending out of the mark, and that's not good. We scored, which is the most difficult, and then we should have booted the ball away, honesty. We had just a few minutes left but it was not possible to keep the result. We know we need to improve playing 90 minutes. We cannot be playing just 50 or 60 minutes."
