Copa Del Rey: Zidane Angry As Real Madrid Suffers Shock Exit
The dwindling fortunes of Real Madrid this season is finally getting to Coach Zinedine Zidane who watched helplessly as his team were dumped out of the Copa del Rey otherwise known as the King’s Cup by humble neighbours Leganes.
This season has been a tale of woes for the La Liga and European champions, and things got even worse as Real were shown the exit doors from the King's Cup after losing 1-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu in front of their fans and even the club president.
“It’s a fiasco. My worst moment as a coach,” Zidane told a news conference. “I don’t regret anything I did in the game, though. I take responsibility for what I do. Winning 1-0 from the first leg to start tonight’s tie in the manner we did it’s really bad. For that I’m angry. I don’t understand what’s going on.
The Frenchman admitted Real’s season boils down to next month’s Champions League last-16 meeting with in-form Paris St Germain.
“Yes, that’s clear,” he said when asked if his future depended on the European tie.
“I’m responsible for this, I’m the boss. I have to find the solutions. We’ve found some of them but not consistently enough. I need to take responsibility and I’ll always fight.” He concluded.
