Zinedine Zidane fumes after Real lose 1-2 to Valencia
Madrid: Real Madrid manager Zinedine was left red-faced after two goals in the opening eight minutes from Simone Zaza and Fabian Orellana blew the La Liga title race wide open as Valencia beat the Madrid team 2-1 on Wednesday.
The defeat leaves Madrid just a single point clear of Barcelona. "We lost in the opening ten minutes, ten bad minutes where we let two goals in," Zidane said. "I'm not worried, I'm angry more than anything, because we only have ourselves to blame." Cristiano Ronaldo halved Madrid's arrears with a towering header from Marcelo's cross a minute before half-time.
