Real Madrid drew with Osasuna (0-0) on Saturday after a complicated trip to Pamplona due to the snowstorm that hit Spain. The Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois do not understand why the match was maintained.
Bad operation for Real Madrid
The Merengue House took only one point in a sad draw (0-0) in Osasuna on Saturday. But could it be otherwise on a frozen pitch and after a trip to Pamplona made difficult by the snowstorm that hit Spain
Zinedine Zidane was very relieved to keep the match going, and he was very pleased with his performance. “It wasn’t a soccer match tonight (Saturday), the game should have been postponed. Of course, that’s no excuse, but matches should not be allowed under these conditions. We did what we could do on the field. We don’t even know when we can go back to Madrid”. The Merengue coach brooded in a press conference.
T. Courtois – “we are not puppets”
His keeper Thibaut Courtois also expressed his anger. “It’s a real shame what La Liga has done. Of course it was possible to play but the conditions were just terrible. We had to take off on a frozen runway and now we can’t get back,” weighed the Madrid keeper.
The Belgian international does not understand how the Spanish League can take such risks with the players. “We are human beings but we are used as a show. If we hadn’t joined Pamplona, we would have lost all three points,” he annoyed Courtois. But I don’t think it was safe to travel. We are not puppets who have to play no matter what.” With this result, Real missed the opportunity to take the lead of the championship, occupied by Atletico Madrid, who still have three games left to play.
