That’s when a stunned Staley launched a profane tirade against the injustice of it all.“I got really worked up,” Staley, now 34, recalled as he prepared for Sunday’s season opener against the Minnesota Vikings. “I said, ‘This is (bull)! A guy gets injured and you get rid of him …last_img read more

first_imgReal Madrid Zidane insists struggling Real and Ronaldo are ‘not that bad’ Jon Fisher 21:53 1/12/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(4) zidane-cropped Getty Images Real Madrid Zinédine Zidane Real Madrid v Villarreal Villarreal Primera División The Blancos boss has backed his misfiring players to rediscover their best form ahead of Saturday’s La Liga home game with Villarreal Zinedine Zidane has defended his Real Madrid players and insisted they are “not that bad”.Madrid have won just two of their last six La Liga matches and find themselves 16 points behind table-toppers Barcelona, albeit with a game in hand.That has inevitably led to criticism of Zidane and his squad but the Frenchman claims it is not all doom and gloom at the Santiago Bernabeu. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player He told reporters ahead of Saturday’s game with Villarreal: “We can’t always look at or listen to what is being said. It’s difficult, but nowadays everything that is said about Real Madrid is negative, and I don’t see it that way, we’re not that bad.”You [the media] know very well it is not all negative here. But it is very easy to say bad things about Real Madrid, it sells more.”The positive thing is that we are still alive in all competitions. I watch the matches back two or three times and I don’t agree with everything that’s being said. I accept what is being said, but there are lots of positive things coming out of this team at the minute.”Cristiano Ronaldo Real MadridBolstering his squad in the January transfer window is not something Zidane will do readily after repeating his stance that signing players out of season is his preferred method.”I can understand why people would think that [we need to sign players],” he added.”But with transfers, as always, if you have a player that you want and he’s available and he’s going to bring a lot to your squad then it doesn’t seem like a bad idea. But I have my squad, I have good players and I don’t see anyone at the moment who can improve that.”Things can change but I think it’s best to change things in June rather than now.”Zidane also backed Cristiano Ronaldo to rediscover his best form after two games without a goal, and on the back of a poor performance in last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo.”He seems fine to me and that’s the important thing,” said Zidane. “The same thing was said about him a month ago and he responded by scoring goals. He will get back to scoring again.”last_img read more
