Zidane critical despite win over Eibar

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane thought his side were far from their best despite Sunday’s 3-0 win over Eibar at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Marco Asensio and Marcelo added to Paulo Oliveira’s own-goal to make it a comfortable win for Los Blancos, but their manager expects more.

“3-0 is a good result,” he said, via Marca. “We did well in defence and I come away with the feeling that it was not all perfect, but satisfactory. It was important to get the three points today.

“Perhaps the fluency was lacking. We can be better, with the ball we can be better. In the end, we made a lot of changes and sometimes you have to realise you cannot do everything perfectly.”

The win, their fourth in a row, takes Madrid to third in the Liga standings, five points behind league leaders Barcelona, who beat Malaga on Saturday.
