‘We can’t be satisfied with ourselves’: Zinedine Zidane makes no apologies for Real Madrid’s shocking home defeat against Cadiz as he continues to sweat over Sergio Ramos’ knee injury
- Real Madrid suffered a shocking 1-0 home loss against newly promoted Cadiz
- Zinedine Zidane did not apologize for the loss in which Real was uninspiring
- Madrid offered little in the attack and was hit by an injury from Sergio Ramos
Zinedine Zidane had no excuses for Real Madrid’s shocking 1-0 home defeat against Cadiz when he was sweating over an injury to captain Sergio Ramos.
A lone strike by Anthony Lozano after 15 minutes was enough to give the PhD candidate an unlikely victory and condemn Real to their first La Liga defeat of the season.
Madrid rarely threatened to attack and was vulnerable in the back in the first half with Sergio Ramos being foul in front of goal and failed to show up in the second half with a knee injury.

“We have to accept defeat and that’s it,” the Real Madrid head coach said at an online press conference. ‘We can’t be satisfied with ourselves and we aren’t, but these things can happen in football
‘If you don’t start right, it could be a tough fight and that’s what happened tonight, but it’s no excuse.
‘We lost a match, nothing more than that. We now need to focus on our next game and try to turn it around. ‘
While the French manager’s multiple substitutions were clearly tactical, Ramos’s withdrawal appeared to be enforced as he struggled with a knock while still on the field before appearing on the sidelines with an ice tire.

Details of the injury or the length of the timeout are unclear, but Zidane admitted he hopes it isn’t serious.
“Let’s hope it’s nothing important,” Zidane said.
‘It’s a knock and we’ll do what we have to do tomorrow to see what exactly is going on. Let’s hope it’s a little. ‘
