Zinedine Zidane was left delighted by Nacho being Real Madrid‘s match winner at Real Valladolid on Sunday evening.

The Spaniard scored with just over 10 minutes to play, sending Los Blancos clear at the top of the LaLiga Santander table.

In celebration of his goal, Nacho ran to embrace Zidane on the bench.

“I’m happy for him,” Zidane responded at his press conference when asked about the celebration.

“Just before that I told him to attack the near post.

“He’s a defender who doesn’t usually score a lot, so I’m happy for him.”
