Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was late for training and press conference on Tuesday after holding a crucial team talk with players and staff and the former France global came out to lash at critics who have written the team off.

"We have had two great years and that shouldn't be forgotten".

And, as per a surprise report stemming from Don Balon this evening, one club who may look to take advantage of Alonso's uncertain status in London are European champions Real Madrid.

Things went in the opposite way for Real Madrid this season, especially in the league, as they have trailed by 16 points behind leaders Barcelona.

'I'm not going to tell you what we talked about but these are talks that could happen with any team, ' added Zidane. Playing football, I know how to do that.

"You can analyse it as you like, say it is a 'crisis moment, ' but we are here to look for solutions, to talk, and try to do things better".

"We are all responsible and me first and foremost, as the coach". The players think the same, we are going to work harder than ever, in every sense. It is not about physical or mental, it is a bit of everything, and continuing stronger.

Zidane said he has no interest in signing a striker in the January transfer window despite an injury to Karim Benzema.

They will face Paris Saint-Germain, who recruited Neymar and Kylian Mbappe and targeted at the title, in Champions League round of 16.

"Some people may think that everything is always easy for me, that I do everything from instinct, but that's not true!" There are moments in the season that are hard, but everything is in front of us and we will see what happens between now and the end of the season'.

On Sunday, they were held to a 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo.
