Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed that he was disappointed by only asking him about the arbitration decisions after he achieved a 2-1 away victory over Real Sociedad to take the top of the Spanish Football League from his arch-rivals Barcelona on Sunday.

One day before the match, Zidane was forced to defend the Real against speculation from Barcelona defender Gerard Pique that the arbitration decisions were in the interest of the club after his 3-0 victory over Valencia last week, where the goal of the opposing striker Rodrigo Moreno was canceled.

The French coach was angry when he received new questions about his club after three influential Real Madrid decisions came against Sociedad.

"This makes me feel uncomfortable at the end of the day that people are only talking about refereeing as if we had done nothing on the field," Zidane told a virtual news conference.

"But you can't control what people say. We win matches on the field, and that's what we did. We achieved a deserved victory."

Sergio Ramos went ahead with a goal for Real after a break by a penalty due to a foul by Vinicius Jr. while Adnan Yanuzai of Sociedad fired a powerful shot into the goal, but the referee canceled the goal due to Mikel Merino sneaking past goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Karim Benzema immediately added the second goal of Real in the 70th minute after receiving a ball over his upper arm, and scored the goal after resorting to the assistant video referee.

"I did not see the footage, but I was told that the penalty decision was correct, and that the goal of Benzema was legitimate," Zidane said. "I don't get into polemics because this is the task of the referee. I just want to think about our deserved victory."

"I would prefer to talk about football and the game. I cannot say anything else about the rest of the matters," he added.

The Real won the three matches after resuming the season after a three-month hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and he led the competition thanks to the direct confrontation with Barcelona, ​​but Zidane said that the road is still long.

"We haven't achieved anything yet, despite having nine points out of nine," said the French coach, who has eight rounds left in the end of the league.

"It will remain difficult until the end. We always want more, and we must be aware of the wonderful work that we have done. We have seen a team that wants to win continuously."
