Zidane Focuses On Madrid’s Super Cup Vs Man United, Plays Down Poor Showing At ICC

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has played down his side's International Champions Cup performance in the United States of America which ended in defeats after three matches, and says he's focusing on their next big assignment, the UEFA Super Cup.

Madrid without inspirational Cristiano Ronaldo who is still on an extended break following his FIFA Confederations Cup commitment, lost against Manchester City and Barcelona, as well as a penalty shootout defeat to Manchester United. 

"I don't care much about the defeat, it always hurts, but right now it's not the important thing," Zidane told the media. 

"It's pre-season. The results haven't gone as hoped, for but it will not change anything. The important thing is to be ready for Aug. 8 (when Madrid face Manchester United in the European Super Cup)."

United will play against Norwegian side Valerenga at 6pm Sunday evening in their pre season tour of the Scandinavian country.
