Real MadridTOThe technician, overcome and the players, in question
Lopetegui is sentenced. You just have to put a date on his departure as coach of Real Madrid. If it is not today, be tomorrow. Or next week. Or after the Classic … But as it happened toRafa Bentezin his day, the odds of him leading the white team until the end of the season are minimal. In the noble zone they feel like throwing it (they had to stop Florentino after the defeat against the Alavs) andhis destiny seems unstoppable.
Julen is reeling from a plan for the errant season.The trainer saw him as the summer progressed and none of his requests arrived, he was afraid the partner, whodo not understand how no one will come to cover the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo,but they did not want to see it in the presidential box, where Florentino believes thatBenzema, Baleand above all,Vinciusthey were more than enough to supply the sale of the top scorer in the history of Real Madrid,the player who had averaged 50 goals during the 9 seasons that he dressed in white.Obsessed withNeymarand with covering the Bernabu,Florentino kept the checkbook and obvi Benzema's scoring statistics, the number of Bale injuries per season and the date of birth of Vincius, an 18-year-old Brazilian who did not dress in front of Levante.
The psima planning is now carried forward to a Lopetegui who was not granted any of the wishes.Courtouis and Odriozola were not a priority for him.Lopetegui wanted, above all, a substitute for Kovacic and a forward of first level.A crack. They brought him to Mariano after losing the European Supercup and for his insistence, but Mariano, a great striker, is not the player in which Julen thought. It is not a top ram.
The errors when planning the season are not new this season. Zidane already saw the last course how a staff thatin two seasons he has lost James, Pepe, Morata, Danilo, Kovacic, Cristiano …Top-level footballers who left because of their own desire, but were not replaced. And yes, Madrid won the Champions League last year, but stayed 17 points behind Barcelona in LaLiga and fell in the Copa against Legans. The template was little by little without closet bottom, but the quality of the eleven holder and, above all, Cristiano, allowed to win the Thirteenth.
In Julen's debit we must also puthis lack of experienceto face this situation that crosses Real Madrid.He is outdone and his message seems to no longer reach the players. Madrid tried it until the last minute against Levante, but during several phases of the game his team was a chaos that split in two.It is also the responsibility of the coach the poor state of almost all players.Neither physically nor technically are the white players shining, something that Zidane did, expert in getting the best out of each one of his men.
Also the players and, especially, the captains are in doubt.Sergio Ramos was the main supporter for Lopetegui to sign for Real Madridand with his performance is not helping the coach, also suspected by some concessions to the dressing room, especially in the issue of concentrations.It is also touched the captain, the one who more force did so that Julen went to Madrid, in the eyes of the Directive.
And all this cocktail is what has brought Madrid to chaos, to be able to finish the day in eighth position, to have signedthe worst scoring streak in its historyand have the coach on the edge of the abyss in October.The price of a summer psimo.
