Real Madrid won their last friendly game in the United States, they beat a team consisted of MLS stars in Chicago on penalties (the regular time ended in a 1-1 draw), but that wasn’t enough to make their coach feel any better about how things have gone for the team in their preseason so far.
The sensation overall is not good. It’s good that we got the result, but the sensation is not positive overall. We only won one out of four games
Zinedine Zidane told reporters at Soldier Field in Chicago.
The tour is done, now we have four days to go back and prepare for the Super Cup, which is our first official match, and obviously we have some things to work out
the Frenchman said, referring to the UEFA Super Cup match against Europa League titleholders Manchester United.
Real Madrid have already lost to United this summer, on penalties, in a friendly game, getting defeated on US soil by Manchester City and Barcelona as well, 4-1 and 3-2 respectively.
Zidane was asked about Cristiano Ronaldo, and he seemed confident that the Portuguese absolutely needed a prolonged vacation after what was a very long season, including his participation in the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
He needed to rest and have his holidays. It was important after a long year
the Real Madrid coach said.
