Zidane is not happy after his first El Clasico defeat
The manager told to reporters “I cannot be happy. We are disappointed with the result. When you get back to 2-2 with 10 men you have to think a little more and defend together.”
“We though that we could grand a third goal. From a throw in we were out of position and then what happened happened. Playing to push up when we have 10 men is dangerous and there was room for us to do something else.”

“When you don’t kill the game off, this can happen, and it did. I have to look at the game again but I wouldn’t have changed anything.”
