Real Madrid coach Zidane: It'll get messy if I talk about refs

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was reluctant to talk about the match officials this morning.

Real Madrid go to Granada on Thursday night needing victory to keep up pressure on leaders Atletico Madrid.

Zidane said, "I don't talk about this anymore. I trust football and everyone does their job. I'm not going to say anything else, because if I say something it's going to get messy. We want to do our job.

"I am not going to get into polemics. What I'm saying is that it has to be clear to everyone. The VAR is always going to help. It has to clarify the plays and I think football people have to sit down to say the same thing."

Zidane was also asked about his own future.

He added: "No way. I only think about the three games."
