Zidane doesn't consider Monday fixtures as 'humiliation'
- Real Madrid are set to battle Celta Vigo on a Monday night, April 15

- Yet, Zizou doesn't consider it a 'humiliation'
Zinedine Zidane has finally come back to Real Madrid and things seem to be getting better in almost every department, save for La Liga fixtures as the Whites look to make a shock appearance on a Monday night, April 15 against Leganes.

Los Blancos haven't played in such since 2014 and when Zizou was asked if this is 'humiliation' from La Liga, who want to punish El Real for crashing out of the Champions League, the boss answered with a degree of dignity and pride:
"We have to just accept we are playing on Monday. I’d prefer to play Saturday or Sunday but I am not one to give the opinion on this," Zidane responded.
Earlier, Los Blancos have suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Ajax, who made short work of the then Solari's team, killing off Los Blancos' CL dreams.
