Zidane has won enough - Kroos backs Real Madrid coach


Real now lie in fourth place, trailing leaders Barcelona by 17 points with a game in hand.

When he scored Real Madrid's third on Wednesday, Marcelo ran to Zinedine Zidane and kneeled down in front of his coach, before hugging him.

The gap to league leaders Barcelona - 17 points with a game in hand before this weekend - is surely too great, but they are looking to climb back into the top three in La Liga.

"It is very tiring, and more so at Real Madrid", Zidane told the media at his pre-match news conference ahead of Sunday's game at Real Betis.

A 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie is sure to ease the pressure on the Frenchman. Zidane has been crucial to their dominance in Europe, and he brought the league title back to the Bernabeu last season, after a wait of five long years. "It is not the moment right now but it will happen".

Real Madrid are prepared to sell four big players to fund Neymar's transfer from PSG.

"For me the most important thing is still the day to day work, I want to finish this season, there are things to play for - that is all that interests me". He said,"They are decisions, what I want is to have all the players available and the other day that was the case".

Speaking on Madrid's connection with Champions League, Kroos said, "Explaining it is very easy: we love this competition and that isn't a secret".
