Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane talked to the press after his team’s 3-1 win against Real Sociedad this Saturday and shared his thoughts about the fans at the Bernabeu whistling Gareth Bale.

“I hope this doesn’t happen throughout the entire season. I want the fans to be with us from the start to the end but it’s something we can’t control. They have the right to do whatever they want, but I ask them to support every player. Bale played a good game,” said Zidane when asked about it.

Real Madrid managed to get the three points in this game even though they conceded an early goal after a mistake by Sergio Ramos.

“I’m happy. We didn’t start the game all that well when we had the ball, we were too slow. But the end of the first half was very good and the start of the second was very good also. We’re happy because we were facing a very good team and we got the three points,” explained the coach.

Los Blancos will face PSG this upcoming Tuesday in what will be a very tough game.

“We just want to complete a good performance, but we have to get some rest first because today was a tough game,” said Zidane.

The French manager was also asked about Eden Hazard’s improvements. The attacker struggled during the first games of the season but has been much better lately.

“His development is quite logic, he’s been better every day. The team has been better too. But Hazard has been very good for the last five or six games and I know he will be even better,” concluded the coach.
