Coaches are in place to make decisions and that’s it,” he told Football Italia.“Decisions are almost always sporting, except in exceptional cases, although there are none of those here.“Starters and substitutes are fictitious problems that don’t exist. The players are here to give everything and be at 100 percent so they can be picked.”Roma dominated the first half and wasted numerous scoring opportunities, but then gifted Gareth Bale the opener with an awful Federico Fazio back-pass.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“I would say that I preferred the seriousness in our play to the goals we scored. We worked hard and you almost always have to win by playing like we did.“Games are 90 minutes long for a reason. Sometimes you have to be patient and we were tonight. Everyone showed a sense of responsibility.“Playing Marco Llorente was a decision I made and I’m here to make decisions. Sometimes we make the right ones, sometimes we don’t, but it’s easy to say that after the game.“I’m very happy with how he played. He’s very disciplined and he works very well. He’s a young man now and not a kid anymore. We’re all very happy for him.“Lucas Vazquez’s performance was no surprise. He’s a hard-worker on the wings and tonight he scored. He did a spectacular job defensively.”last_img
