Zidane rallies his troops at Madrid

"We can't do any more than that", he told reporters.

'It's hard because the more matches you draw or lose, the more the pressure increases.

"We will play against an excellent Real Madrid side, that's for sure".

Real's most obvious issue this season has been the lack of a consistent goal threat.

"There's no choice but to show your best face and fight", he continued.

"He [Pérez] often comes to the dressing room to give his support to the team, nothing more".

But Numancia - who had Dani Calvo sent off deep into injury time - were not finished, Guillermo matched Vazquez's feat by heading home his second of the night to deepen the gloom surrounding Madrid, who lost their last home game 3-0 to Barcelona and are 16 points behind their rivals in the LaLiga table. "That's when we look at things and decide if we need a change or not".

According to the information published on the network, the world's most versatile and off-the-scale footballer is already looking for an accommodation in England and is now choosing the future school for his child to attend. As the season gets worse for Madrid, the chances of Zidane losing his job increase directly.

Earlier in the campaign a number of Los Blancos' players put pen-to-paper on new contracts as a reward for last season's heroics in which they won both La Liga and the Champions League.

Whilst Zidane's refusal to break from the mould that delivered Los Blancos a first La Liga and Champions League double in 59 years has been questioned, much of the fault also lies at Perez's door.

"But we are convinced we will move forward".

"Zinedine Zidane isn't a player at Real Madrid anymore".

Zidane, though, maintains there will be no finger pointing as his team prepare for tonight's home Copa del Rey tie against Segunda Division Numancia, who were beaten 3-0 in the first leg.

"I received a good ball from Iago Aspas and saw that Navas was a little too far out of his goal, and when he covered the angles well I could do nothing but try to chop it".

Zidane also refused to comment on whether or not his side were out of the title race. We dropped points, and if we drop points we can't catch Barça.
