We wanted to change the dynamic - Zinedine Zidane

We wanted to change the dynamic - Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has commented on his side draw against Real Sociedad last night claiming his tactical change changed the game.

Madrid needed a win to close the gap on Atletico before the derby but couldn't displace Real Sociedad as the game ended 1-1.

Speaking after the game, Zidane revealed his tactical change was what killed the game and he did that because he wasn't happy with the pressing.

"I changed it because I wasn't happy with our pressing," Zidane said after full time.

"It was those 10-15 minutes and we changed it again and we were better playing a 4-3-3.

"Our substitutes did well after coming on.

"If you've asked me and that's now three times, then yes, maybe," Zidane replied when asked whether his changes killed the flow of the game.

"We had to change things because, after an hour, the team was a bit tired. Sometimes we have to change things.

"In the end, you try to find things to change the dynamic."

With a win much needed before the Derby, Zidane was disappointed they couldn't close the game between their rival but also positive ahead of the clash.

"We have to remain calm," Zidane added.

"We had a good game and we had three or four chances [to score].

"Patience, calm and rest. We were up against a team that creates chances against you.

"We have to carry on.

"It doesn't change the way we go into the derby. We have to go there to have a great game."
