Do not forget what this Real team has done, demands Zidane

 

By Steve Simpson

Zinedine Zidane has urged Real Madrid fans to keep the faith, with his European champions coming under increasing pressure to find their sparkle.

Real complete their Champions League group stage at home to Borussia Dortmund tonight with qualification for the last 16 already secure.

But Madrid have had to settle for the runners-up spot behind Group H winners Tottenham, possibly handing them a more difficult tie in the first knock-out round in February, while their domestic form has been patchy.

Champions Real trail La Liga leaders Barcelona by eight points and Saturday's 0-0 draw at struggling Athletic Bilbao made it only two wins from their last six games in domestic competitions.

But Zidane, speaking at his pre-match press conference for the Dortmund game, said: "I see things that other people don't.

"I'd urge Madridismo not to forget what this team has achieved. Others, people who are nothing to do with Real Madrid, they can have their opinions.

"I can't change what people think, I'm not bothered by it. It's the way it goes in this job.

"We're playing OK and I don't care what people are saying on the outside.

"Hard work is the only way to get out of this situation in La Liga and find the goals again.

"We'll keep working at it and I'm sure we'll be there or thereabouts at the end."

Dortmund have picked up only two points from five games - the same as APOEL Nicosia - and hope to secure a Europa League spot by finishing third in the group.
