Zinedine Zidane: I am happy with everything

Zinedine Zidane said he was “very proud” of his Real Madrid players after they came from behind to beat Barcelona 2-1 in El Clasico at Camp Nou.

Barcelona led through a Gerard Pique header but Madrid hit back with a spectacular Karim Benzema equaliser before Cristiano Ronaldo produced a brilliant winner.

Sergio Ramos was sent off for Madrid shortly before Ronaldo’s goal, but Madrid were deserved winners having had a header by Gareth Bale controversially disallowed.

Madrid’s win ended a run of 23 La Liga matches without defeat for Barcelona and leaves Zidane’s side just seven points behind their rivals in the title race.

“[I am] Very proud of what the players did, this is not an easy ground, I’m very happy with everything, not just the result,” Zidane told reporters after the match.

“These are [just] three points. Now we must think about resting well and the next game in the Champions League.”
