"We were very solid defensively", said the Madrid coach.
 Zinedine Zidane spoke in the press room at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez and gave his thoughts on the game against Getafe: "I have to congratulate the players because it wasn't easy. We were very good defensively and we lacked something in attack. We have to keep going because we've got a lot of points left to play for. We're going to do just that".

"They've played well and made it difficult. They fought hard and dug in until the end. It's another point and we have to keep going. Giving up would be like throwing the towel in. I've got no comment to make about the referee. He's there to decide and he decided it was offside".

“We’re going to keep on going and there’s no limit to what we can achieve. We’ll achieve something and keep on fighting until the end of the season. We’re in good spirits and there’s no ceiling to what this group can achieve. We have to rest up well and keep on going. There’s a lot of things going on and we’ve got a lot of absentees. We’re not the only ones it’s happening to. There are many teams suffering the same fate”.

Role of youth-team graduates
“They’ve got bright futures ahead of them. They’ve very good players and are so disciplined. Chust put in a really good performance and showed his character. Blanco made his debut and we already know all about Arribas. The youth-team players are always in the mix. Mendy and Valverde were withdrawn at the last minute and we had to organise things as we went along. That’s why they played for Castilla. Despite having played yesterday, Blanco did excellently when he came on”.
