Real Madrid Crazy Matches in Memory [Video]
The Zidane effect was evident on Los Blancos camp since day one of his taking the charge. All the players who seemed much tensed under Benitez were glad to find a legend among them and warmly welcomed their idol as new coach. The French also showed great mind to discuss individually each player and show his support towards them. Real Madrid has won their first match under the new manager with a good margin, however the real challenge is yet to come. The team’s performance even in Benitez era was phenomenal against small teams, it was the tough opponents against whom Los Blancos failed letting their side suffer in the title race. The new manager who was accused of having no experience to handle such an expensive squad seems to have taken it as a challenge which is very much in favor of the club. Being the legend of the club Zidane knows how much embarrassed he would be if team does not improve so he is trying to gradually implement his tactics on the squad.
The latest step Zinedine Zidane has taken for the improvement of the team is the order that all training in Valdebebas be videotaped, as per Marca. With this measure, ‘Zizou’ claims to have controlled his players, find areas for improvement, their physical and tactical performance thereof and the attitude and aptitude of each player. Zidane leads the training session and once its completed, he locks him in his office with his aides to follow closely what happened in the training. Real Madrid have not much to waste now as the race for the title is getting tighter. The Santiago Bernabeu side is currently third on the points table behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. The recording of the training also serves as motivation for the players. In this way, none can relax, no one can hide behind peers to relax or work with less intensity. Indeed a brilliant move by a true legend.
