Zidane blasts LaLiga after Real Madrid fails to defeat Osasuna

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, had hit out at the league and said their fixture against Osasuna should have been called off, because of the snowy conditions.

Los Blancos could only draw 0-0 on Saturday with the visitors who are second from bottom.
The snowstorm that blitzed northern Spain and the capital, forced the champions to travel to Pamplona a day earlier than originally planned.

Zidane’s men were made to wait on the icy runway at Barajas airport for over four hours.

Madrid struggled on the icy pitch as snow continued to fall throughout the game and failed to have a shot on target in the first half.

“That was not a football match, it should have been called off.

“We dealt badly with the conditions and the journey, and we did what we could on the pitch but the sensation we have now is that it wasn’t a proper match,” Zidane told reporters.

The result meant Madrid missed the chance to leapfrog LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid, whose match with Athletic Bilbao was suspended due to the storm.
