Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said he accepts full responsibility after his team's shock elimination from the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.

After a 2-1 defeat at home in the quarter-final second leg to Leganes - a team in only its second season in the Primera Liga - Madrid's only realistic hopes of a trophy lie in the Uefa Champions League. Zidane's side are 19 points behind Barcelona in the Primera Liga table.

Madrid meet high-flying Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain in the first knockout stage of the European Cup next month.
