No post-match handshake from Zidane after home loss

0 20

Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat to Real Betis was such a blow for Zinedine Zidane that he seemingly forgot to shake Quique Setien’s hand after the full-time whistle.

The Real Betis coach said that he could see how much the dropping of three points meant to the Frenchman.

“Zidane was affected [by the result],” Setien told Radio MARCA afterwards.

“He didn’t even have time to shake my hand.

“I am sure that Zidane wasn’t up for joking around at that moment, which is perfectly understandable.”

When asked about Los Blancos’ form, Setien told Zidane not to worry too much, saying that Barcelona could well suffer inconsistent run before the season’s end.

Real Betis might be hoping to use this victory over the defending champions as a motivation in the upcoming matches.
