Former Real Madrid star, Steve McManaman, has criticised manager, Zinedine Zidane for not having a reliable starting XI despite having an abundance of superstars in his squad following the Los Blancos’ 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
McManaman also slammed Thibaut Courtois, Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos for their performance against PSG.
A brace from Angel Di Maria and a late goal from Thomas Meunier gave Thomas Tuchel’s side all three points against the La Liga giants.
“It’s disappointing to lose 3-0,” McManaman told BT Sport. “The goalkeeper [Courtois] was poor, certainly for the first goal.
“Madrid had numerous chances that they missed. Gareth Bale had a nice goal disallowed because it was accidental handball which they would say was harsh. But under the new rules, that is considered a foul.
“But they’ve got big problems, Madrid. They’ve got an abundance of superstars in their squad. I went through the team and it’s incredible. Yet the coach cannot find a starting XI that Real Madrid can rely on and play well.”
