Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane joked Friday that he was "jinxed" as his injury-depleted team comes under attack for their misfiring start to this season's La Liga title defence.

"So now I'm jinxed, am I?" the Frenchman said two days after Real suffered a shock 1-0 defeat by Real Betis.

"Before I was the shining star... No, no, I've always been a shining star, don't worry.

"I'm at this club and I make the absolute most of being here.

"I don't think about bad luck, that's part of football and the good news is that we have a match tomorrow. We have the chance to be able to change that quickly and we'll do it."

In the space of just five games Real have gone from red-hot La Liga title favourites to trailing rivals Barcelona by seven points.

But Zidane insisted that his team was not of the mindset that La Liga was already beyond their grip.

"You can have a 10 or 15-point deficit but in football there are highs and lows and you can experience bad moments and each team will experience them," the 1998 World Cup winner said. © AFP
