Despite his poor performances this season, Zinedine Zidane has leapt to the defence of Marcelo.

The Brazilian came in for additional criticism soon after True Madrid’s two-1 loss at Valencia on Wednesday evening, but the coach wasn’t possessing it.

Marcelo is Marcelo,” Zidane mentioned afterwards.

“I like how he plays and I see him [as being] in very good shape.

“He trains properly and the season is difficult for every person, not only Marcelo.”

Madrid had been lacking a goalscoring threat and only discovered the back of the net in the 93rd minute via Karim Benzema, but by that point it was also late as they had been currently two- down.

“We played properly but could not get the initially purpose,” Zidane added.

“We did not get something in the initially half, but they attempted.

“I can not blame my players for something. It really is a loss and we have to accept it.”

Regardless of their lack of scoring, Madrid had a lot of the ball but just could not break Valencia down.

“We had to do additional in the final couple of metres,” he mentioned.

“It really is difficult, even though, and you have to accept it. We’ll have to do improved on Saturday.”
