Ronaldo deserves more respect, says Real Madrid coach Zidane

Ronaldo deserves more respect, says Real Madrid coach Zidane

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has accused critics of his team of having short memories, saying he had not forgotten their recent achievements.

Madrid are fourth in the table through 14 matches, trailing rivals and leaders Barcelona by eight points.

Progress has also been made in the Copa del Rey, but they were held to a shock 2-2 draw by third tier Fuenlabrada in the second leg of their last-32 encounter.

And speaking at a news conference ahead of Wednesday's final Group H game at home to Borussia Dortmund, with his team having qualified, Zidane said: "I repeat myself a lot, say the same thing every three days, and even I get exhausted of it".

SMU's Chad Morris emerges as top target at Arkansas
Footballscoop.com - a coach-centric website - says Morris would target Clemson's Brent Venables as his defensive coordinator . Prior to SMU, Morris was Clemson's offensive coordinator from 2011-14, helping lay the groundwork for its dynamic offense.

"But I am calm because I know that sooner or later that will change". We must keep doing our work, not throw away what we have done. No matter what people on the outside say, possibly they aren't seeing what I am.

And if they're to turn their fortunes around, Madrid are going to need their two biggest names, Ronaldo and Ramos, on the same page for the rest of the season.

Ronaldo previously hit out at the media for exaggerating the tensions between he and his club-mate, and when asked about the alleged war of words in November, he said, per Metro: "How can I talk to you if I say one thing and you write something else?" Marca has highlighted that Morata alone had scored four goals as a substitute at this stage last season. We are halfway into the season, we still have six months left of the season.

Next week's Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi brings another chance for silverware, and Ramos said victory there would set Madrid up nicely for the La Liga Clasico against Barcelona on December 23. "He will travel to Abu Dhabi with us for sure".
