Zidane : This Was Real Madrid's Best Match Since My Return.


Zidane has labelled Real Madrid 's 1-0 win over Sevilla as the team's best performance since he returned as coach in March.

He spoke in the press room at the Sánchez-Pizjuán after Real Madrid’s win over Sevilla:
“We’re happy because we played the full 90 minutes at a high level at a difficult place. This is a group win and I’m happy for all the players. Sevilla have done well since the beginning of the season and we have to congratulate the players”.

Karim Benzema's header saw Los Blancos take all three points away from Seville and the coach was exhilarated with the reaction to the midweek drawback.

Next match against Osasuna
“We’re going to play another game on Wednesday and every one is different. On Wednesday we will try to play with intensity and go out to win the game from the start. Now we have to rest and congratulate the players because they have given everything out on the field and I'm happy”.

Hazard, James and Bale’s defensive work
“We know we can do more in attack and we will do that. The team work we saw was fundamental in this win. James, Gareth, Hazard and the others were important. We defended well and at a place like this you need to”.

When asked about Modric's absence, he said:
“We know the importance Luka brings to the team but the group were phenomenal today. I’m sure he’s happy with our performance today”.
