Real Madrid have had one of their worst seasons in recent history and have no chance of picking up a silverware this season. And with the next season now fast approaching, Zinedine Zidane has revealed the competition he would want to win next season.
The Real Madrid manager was appointed midway through the season when Madrid were suffering on all corners. Santiago Solari was sacked after Los Blancos’ exit from the Champions League which prompted Florentino Perez to bring Zidane back.
The Frenchman, when quizzed during a pre-match conference about which trophy would he prefer next season, he said ‘most important thing is La Liga’.
“There is no particular reason [for Barca’s recent dominance],” Zidane told reporters ahead of Thursday’s clash with Getafe.
“What I can say is that next year we will try to start LaLiga in the best way. LaLiga is the day-to-day, it is very important.
“Right from pre-season we will try to start very well, otherwise it will be complicated again. Next year LaLiga has to be in the primary goal, for sure.
“Lately they [Barca] are doing well and we have to recognise and congratulate them, but in history Madrid have many more titles.
“We have 33 LaLiga titles, and Barcelona have how many? Recently they have done better, and we have to change that.
“For me, the most important thing is La Liga. In the Champions League you have 12 or 13 games if you win it; La Liga is every day.”
