Real Madrid Boss Zinedine Zidane has said the Spanish La Liga is the strongest league in the world and more difficult than other European leagues.
The French technician was speaking about Madrid’s current form this season and believes the strength of Spain’s domestic league helps their clubs in European competition.
“I don’t think we’ve lost confidence and we trust in what we’re doing,” Zidane told a press conference ahead of their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.
“Other people from outside the club might have doubts but that has no impact on us and we don’t listen to that.
“We know that sometimes we are not brilliant and inevitably people will say things because we are Real Madrid.
“La Liga is the most difficult league to play in – I watch a lot of European football not none are as difficult as Spain is, so we have to maintain our high level.
“We focus on playing good football and creating chances, for games like this (Borussia Dortmund) we must also deal with their attacks.”
Real will be playing away to the Bundesliga giants on Tuesday in a matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League.
