Zidane Reveal reason behind Vinicius benching in City loss

Real Madrid boss opted to play Hazard ahead of the in-form Brazilian on Friday but insists that he didn’t think of using him against City and opted to use the others instead.

When asked about why he didn’t bring on Vinicius Jr in the second-half after the defeat in the Champions League Round of 16 against Man City, Zinedine Zidane said: “Vinicius? When I needed to make changes, I thought of the other players.

“Whenever we lose you guys are looking for something. Tonight I wanted to use other players and that's it.”

Zidane took a risk by playing an unfit Eden Hazard ahead of Vinicius on Friday, something which ended up blowing in his face.

The Belgian was poor and failed to bring that spark in attack, while Vinicius looked disappointed in the bench for not being able to make an impact in turning things around for Real Madrid.
