Even Zidane got angry

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was left baffled after two handball calls went against his side in Sunday's enthralling 2-2 draw at home to Sevilla which left Los Blancos still trailing La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid in the title race.

Real's Eder Militao was penalized in the second half after a VAR review which meant that a penalty that had been awarded to the hosts moments earlier for a foul on Karim Benzema by Sevilla goalkeeper Bono was overruled.

"I never speak about the referee but today I'm angry. In the end, it is what it is and what I say won't change anything. I'm happy with how my team played, we deserved more as we were spectacular in the second half," Zidane told Spanish media.


Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo said he will not resign after seeing his side slip out of the Champions League qualification places in Serie A following a 3-0 home defeat by AC Milan on Sunday, insisting he can do better.

"Step aside? No," Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia. "I have undertaken this job with a lot of enthusiasm, there are difficulties but my work goes on and I am available."

"I think I can do better and be able to get out of it, together with the team. We have to look forward, I will continue to do my job as long as I am allowed," he added.


Neymar was on target the day after signing his contract extension but Paris Saint-Germain were held to a 1-1 draw at Rennes on Sunday, leaving Lille holding a three-point advantage at the top with two games remaining.

"When you are PSG, you have to do much better than that," PSG captain Marquinhos told broadcaster Canal Plus.

"Lille are a really good side and are winning every match. We have two games left and we need to believe, focus on ourselves and perform better," he added.
