Real Madrid coach Zidane shrugs off Pique complaints

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has shrugged off complaints from Barcelona defender Gerard Pique about the schedule.

If they defeat Real Sociedad on Sunday, they will go top of the table and the league title is in their hands. Pique said Madrid are favourites for the league now and that it seems hard for Madrid to drop points. That appeared to be a dig at referees.

However Zidane did not want to get embroiled in Pique's words.

"I am how I am, it's my way of being, I don't complain," said Zizou. "I have the luck of being able to work in what I love. I can complain about life like a lot of people but on that I know it will not change if I complain or not. I'm very positive in my life," said Zidane.

"As always this is something that some player or another can say, what interest me is the game tomorrow. I have my opinion but I will not respond to Pique. The same thing can happen the other ay around, anyone can give their opinion. I only think about the game, that's what we get excited about, nothing else. Refs don't favour us."
