Zidane nonchalant about Clásico defeat
In a pulsating Clasico in Miami on Saturday, Barcelona managed to register a 3-2 victory over their arch rivals Real Madrid.
The defeat means that the Los Blancos end their pre-season tour of the United States without a victory, losing to Manchester City and Barcelona and drawing with Manchester United in the normal time to finally lose in the tie-breaker.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has however denied expressing too much concern, saying that these score lines are not very important.
Zidane told club’s official website:
“I’m not bothered by the defeat. It always hurts, we don’t like to lose but that’s not the most important thing. We need to improve and change a few things.This is pre-season and I’m sure that the results we’ve achieved weren’t what we were expecting, but this doesn’t alter anything. The important thing is to be ready for 8 August.”
Real Madrid will start their 2017-18 campaign on 8th August when they face Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup.
