After a perfect run in December, everything went downhill in January. It’s not yet the end of January but fans want Zizou to leave the head-coach position.
Two big blow for Zidane in just one week
As you may know, Real Madrid lost the semi-final match against Athletic Bilbao. Los Blancos had chances to win against Bilbao but they could not convert the shots. Fans on Twitter believe that Real Madrid is playing chaotic football under Zidane and it will not be beneficial for the team in the long-run. Zizou was very disappointed after the game but worse was ahead for him. In just a few days, Real Madrid lost another game but this time, against Segunda division team Alcoyano. Los Blancos lost chances for Copa Del Rey and Super Cup titles in just one week.
Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard
It seems that Luka Jovic was not happy playing under Zinedine Zidane. We can’t call his performance ‘playing’ because he barely had 100+ minutes under Zinedine Zidane. In just two seasons at Real Madrid, Luka scored two goals. He returned to Frankfurt and in just 20 minutes he scored 2 goals for German club. Experts of Marca and AS believe that Zidane’s decision to play Benzema in every possible game had a huge effect on Luka Jovic’s decision.
The same could be said about Martin Odegaard. It’s not a surprise that Martin can join Arsenal on loan. He will sign a contract for the next six months. Arsenal will have a chance to buy him right after 6 months. Arteta is really keen on this transfer. Martin is a 20 years old midfielder that can have a huge impact on Arsenal’s attacking options. Zidane gave him only a few minutes after his return from injury. That’s why Martin decided to leave Los Blancos for more play-time.
