Cristiano Ronaldo Best Freekick Ever [Video]
Adidas, the German company that sponsors Real Madrid wants to commercially cash the opportunity of the appointment of Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid’s coach. The new coach of the white team is a beneficial change in terms of marketing. The change of Rafa Benitez for Zinedine Zidane has been seen by Adidas as a business opportunity. The second largest firm in the world, that sponsors Real Madrid, seeks to recover the return of Zidane, one of the leaders of the century in terms of brand image. Unlike Benitez, whose image did not quite convince the big brands the new manager’s cache as an athlete together with his natural elegance have made Adidas set it to launch new collections aimed at a more mature target and not so young. An expanding market that Adidas has promoted with other coaches like Guardiola or Jose Mourinho as well.
The French coach has not even debuted, has not directed a meeting in the First Division, but the enthusiasm is evident in the environment. The importance he had as a player at Real Madrid suggests that the French will have the same success as a coach, which is not strictly necessary but with Zizou is very much likely. The French coach has also made clear that Cristiano Ronaldo would continue taking free-kicks during the match. Though Cristiano Ronaldo’s record at set pieces has gone worst in recent season however the newly appointed manager is still hoping for the timeworn magic to sparkle again. The Portuguese striker has scored just one goal from a free-kick this season. His record with free-kicks in the last season was also not convincing as he only netting two from 33 attempts in the 2014-15 La Liga campaign.
“[Cristiano Ronaldo] will play out wide, but he will have freedom in his movements,” Zidane said.
“And of course, he will keep taking our free-kicks.”
