Valencia coach Marcelino defends Real Madrid 'weaker' comments

Valencia coach Marcelino has played down his criticism of Real Madrid earlier this week.

Marcelino invited controversy when declaring Real as being "weaker" than last season.

"They asked me a question and with the utmost respect to Madrid and Zidane, I made a technical assessment," said Marcelino.

"I just gave an opinion and Zidane, who is very intelligent, understood that - and he can say whatever he wants.

"Anyone who wants to take it another way, that's their problem.

"I'm respectful of the Real institution and Zidane and his players."
