Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has defended his Barcelona counterpart Ernesto Valverde from criticism after their Champions League collapse against Liverpool.  

Valverde has been heavily criticised after his team were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield but Zidane says he has performed well despite the embarrassing defeat.  

"What do I think of the criticism of Valverde? I'm no one to say whether it's fair or not," Zidane told Spanish outlet AS Sport. "He knows how it is. What he's done until now, he's done phenomenally.

"We can't doubt what he's done, his work, whether it's fair or not I can't say; you have to accept it because that's how it is."

Barca play Valencia in the Copa del Rey final later this month.
