Following a 2-1 victory at Granada by Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane talked to the media.
After another giant step towards the title being taken by the league leaders, Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane insisted the LaLiga trophy is still not won.
Since 2-1 victory at Granada on Monday, Madrid is one win away from dethroning Barcelona’s two-time defending champions.
With two matches remaining, Los Blancos’ four-point lead over the former Barca rivals was restored by the first goal by Ferland Mendy for Madrid and the strike by Karim Benzema.
In eight seasons Madrid will win only a second league title at home in Villarreal on Thursday, but Zidane avoided championship talk after match.
“We had a very good first half, impressive with the ball,” Zidane told reporters afterward (via).
“The second half wasn’t as good but that’s because our opponents played.”
“To get somewhere in LaLiga, you have to suffer a bit and we came through it was a team.”
“We have to be proud of the team. We’ve got two games left and we haven’t won anything yet.”
“That’s the reality, but there are six points left. When we started the season, we wanted to win LaLiga, but it hasn’t arrived just yet.”
