Zidane: I am tired of hearing bad news - FCNaija

La Liga By: Ambrose Udeme | 13/01/2018

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has condemned the negativity that surrounds news about his side and believes it is only because it (negativity) sells better.

Zidane's lack of a smile in the press room in Valdebebas with now only serious faces clearly reflects the current situation at Real Madrid.

"I am tired of hearing that Real Madrid are bad, it is easy to say that everything is bad but you know that everything is not negative here.

"It is great to speak in a negative way about Real Madrid as it sells better.

"What we have to do is not listen to what they say. All that they say about Real Madrid is negative and that is not right, I do not see it that way.

"The situation is what it is and we need to look at the positive. We are still going in all the competitions." Zidane said as quoted in MARCA

Real have dropped to 16 points off leaders Barcelona in LaLiga, albeit with a game in hand, and produced another disjointed performance in the Copa del rey in midweek against Numancia as they drew at home but had done enough in the away leg to qualify for the quarter-finals.
