Zidane slams media coverage of Real Madrid

Zidane's remarks came two days after his team drew at home against second-tier Numancia in the second leg of their Copa del Rey round of 16 tie, though the Blancos won 5-2 on aggregate, reports Efe.

However, the Yellow Submarine recently lost the services of last season's top scorer Cedric Bakambu, who moved to the Chinese Super League.

Former captain Fernando Hierro has defended and called for the club to be sensible as the pressure grows on the manager.

Los Blancos now sit 16 points behind leaders FC Barcelona, after they drew 2-2 with Celta Vigo last weekend.

"We don't deserve this", Zidane told reporters after the game.

Wild rallies past Blackhawks after 'embarrassing' start
Notes: D Mark Borowiecki (concussion), Johnny Oduya (lower body) and C Nate Thompson (lower body) did not play for the Senators. The Senators managed to cut the lead in half when Stone, with his third in as many games, beat Forsberg short side.

'However, we have to be calm and use good sense.

"One gets used to winning everything, but when that isn't the case, it's not a good enough reason to want him out". "Tiredness caught up with us in the second half but we still had more chances than them".

Hierro joins Michael Laudrup, who won the league title in 1995 after joining Madrid from Barcelona, in backing Zidane to keep his post with Madrid despite the disappointing standing in the league this season.

Real had almost triple the amount of shots on goal as Villarreal and also had Cristiano Ronaldo hit the woodwork twice at a rainswept Santiago Bernabeu, but Pablo Fornals's 87th minute strike inflicted a third home defeat on the floundering champions this season.
