Zidane warns: he would quit Real Madrid without backing

Monday, 23 Sep, 2019

"It's complicated if you are not strong and don't get into the rhythm", Zidane said in his press conference after the game.

Like Sevilla, the Real Madrid have started undefeated in the national league, but they have not been very convincing, and the PSG shattered them on Wednesday night in the Champions League.

Karim Benzema's second-half header earned Real Madrid victory over Sevilla as Zinedine Zidane's side maintained their unbeaten start in La Liga.

Sevilla hosts Real Madrid at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium in Sevilla on Sunday, September 22, with kick-off scheduled for 9 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET).

"When I hear all these questions, it makes everything seem gloomy but when you win everything changes".

The good news is that Real Madrid finally have the opportunity to call up more than just three midfielders as Federico Valverde has returned from his injury and has been deemed fit enough to be called up. "Things look ugly at the moment but you have to keep working".

Former Manchester United, Chelsea, and Real Madrid boss, Jose Mourinho, has shut down rumours linking him with the hot seat in Madrid. Santiago Solari was also called up to replace Lopetegui last season and now Raul could be the next in line.

"I know how it works", Zidane said.

"I'm not bothered by the Mourinho speculation", added the French coach, who led Real to three consecutive Champions League titles before resigning in 2018 but has only won seven out of 16 games since returning to the club in March. Madrid is under all kinds of pressure to show how good they are against the leaders, who have made life incredibly hard for Real at the Pizjuán and will look to do the same this weekend.
