What’s happening with Zidane’s team? Real Madrid fans were in shock during the clash against PSG. Real Madrid could not hit on target during the 90 minutes. Parisians dominated on every inch of the stadium, and it was a magical night for Di Maria.
Zinedine Zidane lost his magical sword?
What do you think? Has Zidane lost his magical sword? Zizou came back to Madrid in spring 2019. People wanted a revolution, and the French coach announced about significant changes in team on first press-conference. Real Madrid spent 300 million euros on new signings, but no one can replace the gap left from Ronaldo.
Fans wanted a revolution and replacing of old faces. Only Keylor Navas left Real Madrid in the summer (on the last day of August), and other squad members stayed.
Same faces, same results, same challenges
Zidane is facing the same difficulties with the same players. Real Madrid failed to win La Liga in the last two years. Logically Zidane should replace old squad member with new players. The issue is that old players (Marcelo, Modric, Kroos, Varane, and Benzema) are still in the starting lineup, not even on the bench.
Zidane is trying to achieve different results with the same players. If someone fails to deliver the results for two consecutive years, you should change something. Nothing changes in summer.
A massive criticism of Eden Hazard
Marca’s expert Rolland Courbis published a huge letter related to Hazard. The message is full of criticism and nothing more. Do you know that Eden returned after summer break 7 KG overweight? That’s called unprofessionalism. Rolland mentioned that Real Madrid lacks goals. The team does not have a top goal scorer, someone who is decisive when the team can’t score.
After Ronaldo’s departure, Real Madrid can’t find someone who can fill the gap of 50 goals per season. Can Hazard replace Portuguese? Not even think about it. Hazard played for Chelsea for many years. Belgian’s best scoring season in local league (PL) was in 2016/17 when Hazard netted 16 goals. Can he fill the gap of 50 goals per season? It’s unlikely.
Replacements for Zinedine Zidane
Spanish newspapers, Marca and AS, created a list of coaches who might replace Zidane in Madrid. Jose Mourinho is always the main target of journalists. The Portuguese coach is free since last season, and he is waiting for a perfect offer from big teams. There are other faces like Allegri and Raul. Those two candidates could be the primary target of Florentino if Zidane continues to fail.
