Ex-Real Madrid GM Valdano tells Zidane: You need to change

"Period. We began with a squad and I believe in my players", he said.

Gareth Bale, Isco and Borja Mayoral scored to give them the advantage going into the home game.

Although the Frenchman said that that his status as a Los Blancos legend would work in his favour, he added that the Zidane of the past - the player - "no longer exists".

Zidane, who was named French coach of the year for 2017 by France Football magazine after leading Madrid to a record five trophies in the last 12 months, held a meeting with his squad on Tuesday that delayed the start of his pre-game press conference. We maybe lacked a bit of gas at the end. When there are things like we're going through, where things aren't going as we want, it's about work.

Despite the raft of changes, Zidane will have demanded a strong performance from his under-performing side and they were ahead within the opening 10 minutes after Vazquez netted his first of the night. I can not think two or three years down the line, as I know how it is here, even having a contract, which means nothing.

Zidane, who has been in charge at the LaLiga giants since January 2016, discusses his future in the Bernabéu dugout, admitting: "I know I won't stay for 10 years". We have to try to keep a clean sheet, score and have a good game.

"I'm not protected by what I achieved as a player for this club".

Zidane's unwillingness to shake things up can be traced to Real's limited activities in the last transfer window. That's not what I think.

The successful defence of their Spanish title now looks a tall order, while Real also face a testing encounter with Paris St Germain for a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

On Thursday, Levante host Espanyol, Cadiz travel to Sevilla and holders Barcelona welcome Celta Vigo to the Nou Camp.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde insisted that despite the high-profile capture of Philippe Coutinho, who can't play for around three weeks due to a thigh injury, his team's character will not change with the Brazilian's arrival.
