Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has claimed that “it was just one of those days” and stressed that there is no cause for alarm as regards to the 8-point-gap between early league leaders Barcelona and his men after an embarrassing defeat to Girona on Sunday.

Los Blancos face an uphill task to overturn their fortunes in La Liga especially in front of goal, but the FIFA The best Men’s coach of the year recipient insists he is not worried and that his side can come back and defend their title.

“I am not worried. We had the chance to kill the match, but I’m not worried. There was no lack of intensity, nor lack of desire. He said at his post match press conference.

“These are things that are happening in the league, but we will continue with the work.

“We lost three points, and we are eight behind, but nothing is going to change, Real can come back, we will have better days and our rivals will drop points.”

For some reason, it seems the team that turns up in the Champions League is different to the one that plays in La Liga and it doesn’t help that the injury list at the Santiago Bernabeu keeps piling up with Keylor Navas and Raphael Varane all out.
