Valencia hand Zidane first return loss

La Liga round-up: Zinedine Zidane suffers first defeat of second Real Madrid spell

La Liga round-up: Zinedine Zidane suffers first defeat of second Real Madrid spell

Real fell 13 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona after their ninth league loss of the campaign - the first since Zidane's return - and are expected to shake up their squad significantly at the end of what has been a torrid season.

"You have to get through the hard moments", Zidane said.

After his recall for last night's defeat to Valencia, Keylor said: "They are decisions made by the technical team and we support them".

They have already been linked with a number of players in various positions, but as per the latest reports from Metro, Zidane is keenly interested to rope in Manchester United's Eric Bailly as their top-priority defensive signing. "It's a loss and we have to accept it".

He added: "As for the final stretch of the season, we are not favourites for anything, we must remain the same with this equality, work and humility".

"They will try to finish the season in the best possible way", Zidane told a news conference.

Still, he may yet get another chance at a big club as the Sun claim Zidane remains a big fan of the £35million-rated centre-back and Real Madrid could be suitors for him ahead of next season.

"If we always talk about the same thing we will not play for anything", he said. "We have eight games left and we need to fight till the end".

Zinedine Zidane appeared in the Mestalla press room to assess the clash with Valencia: "We started the game strongly with good possession, pressing high up". Each defeat is hard.

Brais Mendez (14) and Iago Aspas (57) put the visitors in control but three goals in the space of 10 minutes turned the match on its head with substitute Enric Gallego (63), Luis Avila (71) and Jorge Pulido (73) scoring for Huesca. "Solidarity and playing as a team were our strengths".

"I don't believe Valencia were the better team. We must also live the bad moments, it will not change anything". We are going home without any points but I think it was an even game, with a close scoreboard. We needed a little bit more near the opposition goal.

"We are very satisfied with the level of play. But defeats always hurt". "It's a hard game, but we had the game in our hands". "Marcelo is Marcelo and I will count on him".
