Zidane slams media coverage of Real Madrid

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said media coverage of his football squad emphasises the negative because that "sells more."

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.

"I'm tired of hearing about how badly we're playing," the Frenchman said ahead of a La Liga match against Villarreal on Friday. 

"I'm going to look at the positives in my team because from the media perspective it's very easy to say everything's wrong, but you know it's not that way, because not everything is negative."

Real Madrid, the defending La Liga champions, are currently fourth, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Shrugging off criticism, Zidane stressed that the Blancos remain alive in all of their competitions and said the team just needs a few wins to regain their confidence and consistency.
