Zinedine Zidane - Not Troubled With El Clasico Defeat

Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane said in an interview with reporters after the El Clasico at Hard Rock stadium that he isn't troubled with the 3-2 defeat to rivals Barcelona.

Lionel Messi and Ivan Rakitic had Barcelona leading with two goals in just seven minutes into the game but by halftime, the game was leveled with Goals from Mateo Kovacic and Marco Asensio and just five minutes into the second half Gerard Pique gave the Catalans the winning goal which couldn't be leveled for the rest of the game.

Real Madrid will face Barcelona in two weeks time for the Spanish Super Cup and will now be preparing for their more recent clash with Europa League winners Manchester United for the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje.

"This is preseason and I'm sure that the results we've achieved weren't what we were expecting, but this doesn't alter anything,'' he told Madrid's official website.

"The important thing is to be ready for Aug. 8. I saw some good things out there, but also some things I didn't like.

"We've got to be patient, work hard and be ready for the UEFA Super Cup.

"I'm not bothered by the defeat. It always hurts -- we don't like to lose, but that's not the most important thing. We need to improve and change a few things."
