Zidane explodes as Real Madrid blow La Liga title lead

Zinedine ZIdane has launched a scathing assessment of the referees in La Liga who overlooked Real Madrid’s call for a penalty and instead awarded it to Sevilla in the 2-2 draw at the Estadio Alfedo Di Stefano.

The manager can’t under why Sevilla will commit a similiar offence to Real Madrid and yet go unpunished while Real Madrid suffer the callous decision of the VAR.

“I’m very angry,” Zidane told Movistar. “I spoke to the referee to look for an explanation. It’s really complicated because we deserved much more but it is what it is.”

Venting in anger during his press conference, Zidane added: “I don’t understand anything from the referee. If there is a Militao handball, it is Sevilla handball as well.

“I am not convinced by what he told me. I never speak about referees, but today I am angry.

“Don’t ask me any more about this, I’ve already said what I think. They have to explain the handball rules to me and that’s it. We’re going to fight until the end. Until the death.”

Madrid who would’ve be crowned champions if they succeeded in wining all four matches will now have to sit in second place level on points with Barcelona with 75 points.

Atletico Madrid is still in driving seat and will be champions if they win all three matches.

This means Real Madrid will end the season trophy less for the first time in 4 years under Zinedine Zidane. It might also force the club to get rid of the very successful French man for Germany’s world cup winning manager Joachim Low.
