The saying says: “Second parts never was good” and that can be applied to Zinedine Zidane on his return to Real Madrid, club with which he was a champion at the Champions level with a triplet from 2016 to 2018, but now he is on the edge of the abyss in Europe and in The league Barcelona is the same who loses with Levante and Betis.
More than 300 million euros invested in the summer of 2019, the Meringues gave Zidane everything he asked for in reinforcements -with the exception of Paul Pogba- to return to the forefront after a 2018-19 Season of nightmare, but in the absence of 11 days in LaLiga and a match of K.O. in Champions, the picture is equally bleak.
Double defeats average
There is no stronger statistic against Zinedine Zidane in his second stage with Real Madrid that the 10 losses in 50 games, while in its first stage lost the tenth Until the game 105!
A date after imposing Barça in the Classic to take the top, he abdicated the lead with a setback against Betis, uncovering the debate of whether Zidane looks more like an animator than a strategist.
Infinitely smaller clubs in budget like Rayo Vallecano, Levante and Mallorca already defeated Zizou in his second white term; Betis and Real Sociedad “executed” him in a couple of opportunities. Valencia, PSG and Manchester City complete the dozens of trips.
The record investment in “Galactic” hires In summer he was excited about a new Madrid project, but with the passing of the months no reinforcement has a place in Zidane’s eleven for several reasons.
With Eden Hazard, the injuries were among cotton and it is a fact that the rest of the season will be lost. Just 10 games and one goal for the supposed new star that cost 100 million euros.
TO Luka Jovic he was signed to solve the goal orphanage for the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, but he does not even enter the calls. A similar case is that of Militao, Brazilian central that in the defeat against Betis was exhibited as lateral, position in which Zizou improvised.
Ferland Mendy He has been the most regular of the arrivals, but in the key games the coach continues to put a decadent Marcelo.
Zidane’s ‘hate’ to Bale and James
As “cake cherry” is the known distance from Zinedine Zidane with Gareth Bale, one of the great contracts of Florentino Pérez in the decade, from whom it has become clear he wants to leave Madrid as soon as possible because “he is not happy”.
To a lesser extent and without so many public friction is the issue of James Rodriguez, the Colombian who played for two years at Bayern Munich because Zizou “erased” him in his first stage and the tonic remains with that he was a scorer of the 2014 World Cup.
