"I wasn't convinced by what the referee told me, but that's the way it is, he makes the calls", said the coach.
Zinedine Zidane spoke in the Alfredo Di Stéfano press room after the clash between Real Madrid and Sevilla. The French coach said: "I don't understand anything. There was a handball by Militão, but also by Sevilla. I wasn't convinced by what the referee told me, but that's the way it is, he makes the calls. I'm a bit angry today because I need the handball rule explained to me. But that's the way it is, we're not going to change anything".
 
“We’re happy with our performance, the second half was spectacular. We got off to a slow start in the first 25 minutes, but the second half was really good. The league isn’t in our hands now, but we’ll fight right to the end, until the death”.
 
The team gave everything
"We can talk, you can ask me and I can answer, but nothing is going to be clarified now. We have to think about the three remaining matches. I'm also annoyed about the result, because we deserved more. The players gave everything on the pitch and deserved the win".

The league isn’t in our hands now, but we’ll fight right to the end, until the death.

"I've got faith in football, that goes without saying. I trust everyone, I trust the referees. I've never interfered and I'm not going to interfere. The thing today was that there were two handballs and the one awarded was against Real Madrid. That's the truth".

Run in
"We feel good. My players showed their commitment, they wanted to win the game. I'm very happy with the game. We've got three games to go and we're going to fight til the end. If we have to play tomorrow the team be ready. We play on Thursday and Sunday and we're going to focus on these games".

Change of approach
"We didn't start the game well and they did. It was different after the goal and we improved a lot. We deserved the win four our performance".
