Angry Zidane slams LaLiga's decision to let the game go on despite bad weather

Zinedine Zidane was angry that LaLiga did not postpone Real Madrid's match against Osasuna after it ended up being played amid difficult weather conditions.

Madrid were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw at El Sadar, with much of the contest taking place in heavy snowfall.

Ice on the runway had also meant Los Blancos were delayed on their journey to face Osasuna and the team was expected to face similar complications flying back to the Spanish capital.

"It wasn't a game of football," said Zidane.

"Yes, clearly [it should have been postponed]. Of course.

"We all saw what we saw. In the end, we played and that’s that. It’s my opinion.

"We played because they told us we had to play. We don’t know what we’re going to do, we’ll see now. We have to recover and think about the next game.

Storm Filomena meant leaders Atletico Madrid had their match against Athletic Bilbao postponed on Saturday but that was not the case for Zidane's men.
