Real MadridTOThe French coach asked his players respect for the fans
CWhenZidaneI agreed to take over the team, with everything lost, I knew what I had.That's why he was not surprised to see some players very far from his best formwhen he entered Valdebebas and that is why he is not surprised by the lack of clothing that exists in the face of this final stretch of the year. But that knew what there was does not mean that resigns to throw what remains of season.Zizou is finding it hard to plug in his players,but he is trying. And if he has to raise his voice in the locker room, he does.
The closest example is the past Saturday, in the break of the match against Eibar. Perda Madrid 0-1 and, what is worse, appeared to be indolent players before what happens. Cold as the weather, nor the Bernabu whistles seemed to wake them up. So thathe had to take out the whipZidane to make his players see that the image they were offering was not in line with what is supposed to a club like Real Madrid.
Zidane entered in action with a harangue in which he appealed to the pride of his players and asked respect for the fans who had approached the Santiago Bernabu.Aware of the effort that had made the 50,000 fans who went to the stadium to see an inconsequential game on a cold and rainy afternoon, Zizou ordered his players to win for them."We have to win for them, for those who have come to see us with this cold",I told them Zizou.
The Frenchman made his players see that the shield requires them to finish the season in the best possible way and that the fans do not deserve to see how their team also collapses in the final stretch of the season."You have to take out your pride",Zidane said, visibly angry at the attitude of his players.
Zidane invited his players to take the field in the second half with a further march and to move the ball with more speed and fluidity. And I asked them to forget about the whistles and that these were motivating."You're not being you, tennis, go out there and play without fear, if we're not brave, we're not going to beat anyone, we have to play with pride, with more aggressiveness", insisted Zidane in a message that was perfectly captured by the costumes.
"Zidane has told us four things at rest",sureReguilnat the end of the match, admitting that it was the coach who, with his talk, returned them to the game. And it is that if something gets Zizou is to reach the footballer with his message, which cal in the first two and a half years he was at Real Madrid and that seems to keep coming to the locker room.
Zidane is trying to finish the season in the best possible wayand plug in all of your players, but while you're going on a note. The French are analyzing their staff in detail and is already doing their homework to make the best possible team for the next season.
Although Zidane says that the whole issue of casualties is something to talk about at the end of the season, the reality is thatalready has several decisions takenand that there are many players who are playing the square facing the next course. Zizou, more than the quality of his players, is looking at the attitude of his players and his involvement with the club in this crisis situation.
Zidane is giving opportunities to all his players and wants them to respond to him on the pitch, regardless of the fact that there are no titles remaining.Winner like few, he does not want his name to be associated with a season finaleand that's why he had to raise his voice during the break of the match against Eibar. Because his feeling against the whole Granota was much worse than what, for example, he had in Valencia. In Mestalla he felt that his players were giving everything, something that did not happen in the first time of the past Saturday.
After the talk and the comeback,He left with a better taste in his mouth, although being aware that the seven remaining days are going to be very complicated to manage at anmic level.
