Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane dismisses 'jealousy' of critics

Isco slams 'shameful' journalist for Madrid Juventus robbery accusations

The Galacticos progressed to the semi-finals by the skin of their teeth, nearly blowing a 3-0 first-leg lead against Juventus but ultimately going through thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's 97rd-minute penalty in Madrid to win 4-3 on aggregate.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has broken silence over the last minute penalty awarded to Real Madrid against Juventus in their Champions League clash during the mid-week, according to the Daily mail. I'm not going to discuss that, but I'm angry that people are talking of a robbery. Málaga probably realize that it's a little too late to do anything about their situation while Madrid's only interest in LaLiga is to keep players competitive, engaged and with spirits high in readiness to contest the only trophy they have left to play for this season - the Champions League. "I can't believe people are saying these things".

Speaking to the press on Saturday, Zidane said: "Everyone has their own opinion on whether it was a penalty or not".

Zidane added: "To be honest I think it is disgraceful, upsetting and deceptive". 'People can write or say what they want but no-one can change the history of this club, which is the best Real Madrid will take a trip to Malaga in their next La Liga match.

Salah has continued his impeccable form for the Reds this season as he reached the 30-goal mark in the league and 40 in all competitions.

"Those were his words", Zidane said. 'We can't change that, but I'll always defend my players.

Buffon was especially critical of the English official after he awarded Real Madrid a last minute penalty in the second leg of their Champions League tie.

"It's shameful what has been said about us and the way we have been treated, the suggestion it was robbery".

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was badly missed against Juventus as he was suspended, but he should return alongside Raphael Varane in the heart of the visitors' defence.

Malaga are 14 points adrift in the table but Zinedine Zidane remains wary of the dangers of this evening's opposition.
