Zinedine Zidane is one of the big signalled by the defeat of the Real Madrid against Paris Saint-Germain of Thomas Tuchel, but the French technician did not do not even threaten to recognise some error typical of approach or alignment. The trainer of the white team, in the back press conference to the party, limited to say that the problem was the intensity of his footballers.

The journalists asked him openly to Zidane that how could explain the goleada and the answer was cutting, alluding to that his players did not put the leg. "They have surpassed us in everything, at stake, in the average, and what more bothers me is the intensity. It is complicated if you do not go in strong", said, signalling to his footballers.

On the defensive fragility of the team, went back to explain it with the fault of intensity. "They are good to create occasions, is not this what concerns me, but see to my team without the necessary intensity to this height of the competition. We knew that they went us to presionar, but we have not gone in hardly ever in the party and have not created few occasions. We have done two goals but have been cancelled by the VAR", remembered.

"We did not have intensity, if you put the leg can win the parties"

Curiously, when they asked after him the abysmal performance of Thibaut Courtois, Zidane said that it did not want to signal to anybody, in spite of that instants before had done it with all his players. "Here we are all in the same ship, do not go to signal to anybody. It is necessary to forget now this defeat and centre us in the next party, the fault is of all when it loses ", said.

The Real Madrid only made two shots between the three sticks and both were cancelled. "It has not liked me this, odd feeling, with the people that there was, but have not gone in hardly ever in the party. It is not that it was concerned but usually with the players that have are used to to create more occasions", aimed.

When they asked after him which real problem has his Madrid, Zidane went back to go out with the same: the intensity. "Problem of the Madrid: I think that the intensity, when there is a balloon divided and put the leg and can win duels can win the parties. For me that has been the problem", sentenced.

The PSG, without Neymar, Mbappé and Cavani

The Real Madrid had the drops of Marcelo and of Sergio Bouquets, but Paris Saint-Germain played without his trident of attack, formed by Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani: "they Have been upper and have deserved the victory and we have been worse. If the rhythm is not well is very complicated, have us presionado well", concluded.
