If reports from certain sections of the media are to be believed, as many as four Real Madrid stars have been warned by Sergio Ramos and manager Zinedine Zidane, after their shocking 1-0 defeat against Real Mallorca in La Liga.
According to a report carried by Don Balon, a Spanish media outlet, Ramos is utterly disappointed with his teammates especially Marcelo, Alvaro Odriozola, Isco and Vinicius Jr after they failed to even draw the game against a relatively weaker looking opponent at the Iberostar Stadium in Spain on Saturday.
Earlier in the game, Lago Junior of Mallorca scored the opening goal in just the seventh minute of the match. On the other hand, Real Madrid finished the goals with 13 shots, four of which were on target, but could not manage to go past Real Mallorca’s goalkeeper Manalo Reina.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane reflected on the loss after the game.
“The problem is that we have to show every three days that we’re good,” he said in a post-match media interaction. That’s the difficulty, we don’t do it.
“I won’t say that I’m worried because I don’t like the word, but if we want to win something this season, we need consistency. The injuries aren’t an excuse,” Zidane further added.
“There are players who aren’t injured, we have more good payers too.”
“When it comes to their turn, they have to show that they’re at the level to be here,” he concluded.
