Zidane not at the level


Zinedine Zidane takes fewer points than her predecessors. The Spanish daily As has compared the debut of “Zizou” on the bench of Real Madrid with the four previous coaches. The record of the French is the worst. Zinedine Zidane has the makings of a great coach? In an attempt to answer this difficult question, As compared the debut of the French with those of his predecessors on the bench of Real Madrid. After 10 games at the head of the White House, the 1998 world champion has won seven wins, two draws and lost once. It’s not as good as Rafa Benitez, Carlo Ancelotti, Manuel Pellegrini and Jose Mourinho, the former Merengue technicians. The first setback of “Zizou” as coach of the Real, against Atletico in the derby of Madrid (0-1), plummets the first impression rather good left by the French until then. Here he is propelled worst student of the last five coaches by the Spanish daily. José Mourinho had the best start with eight wins and two draws. Carlo Ancelotti then arrives with eight successes but one defeat. Rafa Benitez and Manuel Pellegrini followed with seven wins and three draws for the Spaniard respectively and eight wins and two losses to the Chilean side. The opponents were obviously different, it is always difficult to compare. Especially since Zinedine Zidane, unlike her four predecessors, is taking her first steps as a coach of a professional team. Nevertheless, the numbers do not speak in his favor and “Zizou” will have to do more, as much in the way as in the results, to keep the reins of a club like Real Madrid.
