Real Madrid have ended Barca’s monopoly

Los Cules have “ended the monopoly that Barcelona had” in LaLiga, says Fabio Capello with Zinedine Zidane, who considered the man who “understood best the club’s needs.” Real Madrid enjoyed a fantastic run on the back of a coronavirus-enforced break to snatch a Spanish top-flight crown from their Classico rivals. Real Madrid entered the lockdown and sat behind Barça and with questions once again being asked of their ability to perform consistently. However, they have combined ten consecutive wins since mid-June. Only tarnishing this record in a 2-2 draw with Leganes on the last day, and completed the campaign with five clear points at the summit. Zidane was returned to Madrid in 2019 to oversee further success. And having previously delivered the Liga title and a hat-trick of Champions League triumphs.

Real win title on merit

He has shown that he has a winning formula once again, with Barça being prevented from completing their third title in the same number of seasons and their fifth in the past six years. “Real win it on merit,” former Real coach Fabio Capello told reporters of the Blancos’ achievement. “They played the best league. They scored goals, and others didn’t score many against them. “Real ended the monopoly that Barcelona had. He added that the Blaugrana tripped over the post: “Real took advantage of the fall of Barcelona. But let it be clear that Real won thanks to his merit, not because of someone else’s mistakes”. Capello knows what it takes to achieve title success at the Santiago Bernabeu.

He has performed this rehash in each of his one-season spells with the club and believes that Zidane. A fan favorite in his playing days is the perfect coach to take on one of the most challenging roles on the planet. Capello said of the iconic Frenchman: “Great. My warmest congratulations. He did very well. It wasn’t easy to win this title, and he achieved it with ten wins and a draw, impressive. Zidane understands better than anyone what the club needs. He is discreet, with personality and confidence. He is the coach who understands the need for rotation and making changes.”
