Zidane refuses to blame Courtois for Real Madrid defeat

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 19/09/2019

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has refused to blame Thibaut Courtois for the heavy defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Courtois struggled to perform against the Ligue 1 Champions but Zidane is not willing to blame the former Chelsea star for the 3-0 defeat.

"We're all in the same boat here, I'm not going to single anyone out," he said.

"We have to forget this defeat and focus on the next match, the blame is on everyone when you lose."

Los Blancos were lacking inspiration across the pitch but what did Zidane think was the main problem?

"I think it's the intensity," he said.

"When there is a loose ball and you put your foot in and you can win duels, [then] you can win matches.

"That's the problem for me."

Real Madrid will look to correct their errors when they entertain Club Brugge in their next Champions League clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.
