“Backfired on him so many times” – These Real Madrid fans question Zidane’s selection after Athletic Bilbao defeat

Posted by

It’s well known that Zinedine Zidane is utterly dependant on his veteran players to have any success at Real Madrid, so there was always going to come a time when the club would need to move on.

The reality is starting to settle in that the correct moment was at the end of last season. Real are still doing will this season and they might win La Liga, but Atletico are the clear favourites and Zidane’s veterans are starting to slow down.

The entire club will need to reset soon with the likes of Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric and Benzema approaching the end of their careers so replacements will need to be found, while Zidane doesn’t look capable of being the man to oversee that revolution.

They lost in the Spanish Super Cup tonight with plenty of the old-guard out on the pitch yet again, while his decision to stick by Lucas Vasquez backfired as he played a key role in conceding both goals.

There have been plenty of disgruntled fans since the start of the season, and they’re out in voice again tonight after the defeat denied them a chance at a final against Barcelona:

Big-name managers don’t tend to move during the season so it’s unlikely that Zidane would be sacked unless the plan is to promote Raul from the Castilla job, but it would be a surprise if he’s still there next season.

  1. Unbelievable , he is counting only the same squad over and over again . You can see he is short of vision when it comes to difficult decisions . Playing the same tacktick everytime again especially through Mendy who has only 10% succes in bringing crossballs . This player has to still learn how to kick the ball the right way . No Zidane Im afraid you will not be around too long anymore

  2. I am surprice of the sub with hazard,and he has to give his old boys a litel rest and let de yound-one’s show their talant..valverd,odegard,ordrizolar and even mariano..,i think all these players playing along hazard will make a great impact on the pitch.(benzema has to rest and all the vergit too(old boys)

  3. i don’t really understand zidane anymore this players you refuse to use. you are are the one who sign them. but you still rely on your old player. he is so adamant with his old squad. he can’t even give chance to rising young players you have.
