The French legend Zidane soon after taking the charge at Real Madrid has the message for his squad. The World Cup winner knows what it takes to be the manager of a world class club like Real Madrid so he has his mind very much clear. “My first words were very important for the players because we trained in front of our fans,” said Zidane.
“I told them that I am very happy to be at their side and that this is a new adventure for us.
“We have goals to meet and we will give our very best to reach those goals. We will try to play attacking football, but balanced, and nothing more. We will work to do as well as possible. The message is this”.
The former Real Madrid player is trying to bring the whole team together as a unit insisting the participation of those who were unhappy with Benitez. James Rodriguez and Isco were the two Real Madrid players who suffered a lot of time on the bench under the Spaniard. Zidane has guaranteed in his first press briefing that both players are of much importance to Real Madrid also Gareth Bale who looks disappointed after Benitez’s departure.
“I’m a bit emotional, like yesterday that will pass. I am convinced of day to day work I will do with my players. I’m not someone who talks a lot with press. But that’s not important. Day to day with players will be fundamental and the message will only be one: to win.”
“I worked with Mourinho, with Ancelotti and I also visited Guardiola,” said the former France international.
“I learned a lot from all of them and I must implement my own style now. You cannot try to replicate what other coaches are doing.
“We will try to have the ball and attack fast, this is how I understand football”.
