Zinedine Zidane‘s honest attitude and approach to the Real Madrid job has been a breath of fresh air at the club. That said, he knows the score, and that his team’s situation in the league means that success hinges on winning the Champions League this season.
The Frenchman has said that Real Madrid have as good a chance as any other team, something that cannot be said about Spain’s domestic league competition. He knows that it’s Los Blancos’ favourite competition and that they won their ninth European crown with him out on the pitch and ‘La Décima’ with him in the dugout as Ancelotti’s number two.
He has said that he wants the European title and is convinced that he can lift the trophy in Milan. He also knows that the likes of Ronaldo, Ramos and others are eager to win Europe’s top club competition again and be showered in the glory that comes with lifting the trophy. That is also something that Zidane knows a lot about.
Zizou’s message to his players in clear and concise. He knows that they could go into Sunday’s game against Malaga 10 points adrift of league leaders Barcelona.
The bulk of their work has been focused on this competition and the coaching staff are convinced that their players will be back at their best from this week.
