Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane admits it is hard to motivate his side after they needed a last minute goal from Karim Benzema to beat bottom side Huesca.
Benzema’s spectacular 89th-minute strike made it two wins from two since Zidane returned to the club earlier this month.
However, Real were far from their best at the Santiago Bernabeu against a side seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table with just five league wins this season.
“Obviously, we can play much better than we did today. But I’m happy for the victory and the efforts. Huesca deserved more than a defeat,” said Zidane.
“The changes? I tried to build the best possible team to win, and today it was important to make changes after the international break.
“Anyway, it’s impossible to win a title nowadays with just 13 players in your squad. And to make it clear: I’m not trying to keep everybody happy.
“It’s hard to motivate the team when you know you are not going to win any title this season.”
