5 reasons why Zidane should continue as Real Madrid manager
Zinedine Zidane is having a tough-time this season as the head coach of Real Madrid. His first two seasons as manager have been largely successful with back to back Champions League titles. But a slump in performances have seen Madrid fall off the pace in the League with Barcelona opening up a 15 point lead and only 10 games to go.
This has caused Zidane to face a lot of criticism from all sections of the Madrid media, with his every move being watched closely.
The current situation with the World Cup winner goes on to show that being a manager is a thankless job. The Spanish outlets have not let him rest easy with questions being raised about his team selections as well as his perceived inability to tactically change the outcome of a match.
We at SK disagree and came up with 5 reasons why the Madrid media needs to go shove it.
#5 Zidane walks into the dressing room and automatically commands everyone's respect
What do you do when you have a team full of superstars, each with an ego to boot?
Simple. You get a guy who is, well, simply better than all of them. Or in this case, keep the guy who is better than all of them.
Zinedine Zidane needs no introduction for the squad to sit up and take notice, neither does the footballing world. The space he's carved out for himself in the game is matched only by a few, if any.
Therefore, when he walks into the dressing room filled with Galacticos, Zidane will be heard and his instructions will be carried out on the field (something others like Rafael Benitez failed miserably at doing in the Spanish capital).
It isn't easy to command a squad of supremely talented players including the Portuguese megastar and still get them to function as a unit. Even in a dismal campaign, the Frenchman has not only got them to play some scintillating stuff, but has also revived the form of the most-known footballer on the planet.
Your side can be in trouble if the squad thinks it knows more than the one in-charge. Luckily with Zidane, that can't possibly be the case.
