Spanish government tells Real Madrid to blame their pilot

Real Madrid should blame their pilot for being stuck in Pamplona.

So says Spain's minister for transport, Jose Luis Abalos, who has laid the responsibility for Real Madrid's travel to Pamplona with the pilot of the plane that flew them there.

Zinedine Zidane's squad spent five hours in the plane as they waited for it to take off for Pamplona ahead of Saturday's match against Osasuna.

Storm Filomena has seen some of the heaviest snowfall in Spanish history, causing havoc across the country in terms of travel.

After Saturday's game, Zidane criticised the authorities for allowing the match to go ahead.

"The fact that Real Madrid travelled to Pamplona was the pilot's decision," Abalos said at a press conference on Sunday.
