- Zinedine Zidane was angry with his players after their poor showing against Eibar

Zinedine Zidane was furious with his players after a poor second-half display against Eibar at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium, reports in Spain claim.
Los Blancos finished the first half with a 3-0 comfortable lead before Eibar dominated most of the proceedings in the second half.
Real conceded a goal on the hour mark and it took some brilliant saves from Thibaut Courtois to still keep the two-goal advantage.
Despite maintaining two points behind league leaders Barcelona, Zidane was not happy with the team's attitude in the second half and admitted that it was lack of concentration in the concentration second period.
The French boss calmly said in a post-match conference: "Everything about the first half was good and it was 3-0, so maybe we relaxed.
"I don't know, it's something completely different, but we have to adapt.
"We found it difficult in the second half. I don't know if it was the physical side, but we weren't on it.
"The first half was good and convincing. It's three important points. There are ten games left."
But reports coming from Madrid based outfit Marca, Zidane was enraged with his players in the dressing room for taking their feet off the gas.
But the French boss was happy with the return of Eden Hazard who lasted an hour in the match before he was substituted.
The Belgian winger who sat out most of the season on the bench due to injury problems was involved in all the three goals scored by Los Blancos.
Madrid have two crucial games next, one against Valencia at home in midweek while the other will be with Real Sociedad, the team that knocked them out in the Copa del Rey.
