The Real Madrid players were handed a dressing-down by coach Zinedine Zidane after their LaLiga draw with Eibar, according to Spanish TV channel La Sexta.

Zizou critical of side's lack of intensity 

Real had to settle for a point against the Basques on Sunday - their fourth straight stalemate in all competitions - as they surrendered top spot to Atlético Madrid.

Real were jeered off after a frustration afternoon against Eibar on Sunday.

And the programme 'Jugones' says Zidane laid into his team for their display, telling them: "You don't win games just with the badge on your shirt.

"We have to be more intense."

Players told to reflect on recent performances

It also reveals that the Madrid boss urged his charges to take advantage of the international break to reflect on their performances in recent matches.

The Frenchman is then said to have spoken to Los Blancos' president Florentino Pérez, seeking to offer him an explanation for the side's recent winless run.
