Villarreal Stun Real Madrid At The Bernabeu

Share

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal said his side were in the eye of a tornado after succumbing to a second successive home defeat in the La Liga by losing 1-0 to Villarreal on Saturday, but he was at a loss to explain his side's predicament.

Madrid have won just two of their last six La Liga matches and find themselves 16 points behind table-toppers Barcelona, albeit with a game in hand.

Zidane claimed it is important that they keep focused and don't listen to the criticism.

"You [the media] know very well it is not all negative here".

Zidane's Madrid welcome sixth-placed Villarreal to the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, and despite having little chance of winning LaLiga are still in the running in the Copa del Rey and face PSG in the ChampionsLeague round of 16.

Villarreal, meanwhile, come into this match unbeaten in their last three matches, which include two wins and a draw.

Bolstering his squad in the January transfer window is not something Zidane will do readily after repeating his stance that signing players out of season is his preferred method. But I have my squad, I have good players and I don't see anyone at the moment who can improve that.

He added: 'For me, we are recovering things and we will (recover) with my players and staying relaxed, without problems'.

And after a disappointing 2-2 draw at home against Numancia on Wednesday, the questions over Zidane's future have grown.
