During the interview with OTRO, Zidane talked about his coaching career. He said that Real Madrid players need different approaches.
An unusual approach to coaching
Zinedine Zidane said that he is not following the general guidelines of coaching. French coach said that he has a different approach. Zidane noted that his main job is to show players a different side of the football. It’s related to the psychological and mental part of life. Zidane said that he is showing players that they are more than just footballers.
Zidane mentioned that he has never shown to Ronaldo or Modric how to kick the ball correctly. Zinedine believes that Real Madrid already has players who are monsters. French coach said that coaching staff is doing everything to take most out of each player.
Hunger of extra-class players
Journalists asked him about the hunger top players have towards trophies. Zidane said that he is amazed by extra-class players in the current industry. Coach mentioned Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi and others who want to win every game. Zidane said that in the past, he won the Ballon d’Or and he was on top of the world. At the same time, Messi won it six times and Ronaldo for five times. That means those extra-class players have a different approach to career. Zidane is amazed by those extra-class players because of consistency. By winning one Ballon d’Or Zidane thought its the top of the world, while Messi and Cristiano have shown different things.
Coaching the team with a winning mentality
Zidane said that he decided to start coaching because of a winning mentality. All the coaches try to change footballers instead of taking the best out of each. That’s why Zidane loves coaching. French coach noted that coaching is all about creating team spirit. Under Zidane, Real Madrid won more than 10 trophies thanks to perfect team spirit.
