Zinedine Zidane’s relationship with Real Madrid as a player and manager has been around for 20 years. In these two decades, the French star has become the son of Real’s house. Real have had a great career as a player. After that he also made history as a coach. The player has surpassed the success of his life by standing in the dugout. Zidane, the ‘son of the house’, resigned as Real’s coach for the second time a few days ago.
Although there has been a lot of speculation about why he left, Zidane has not said anything for so long. Finally broke the silence. The Spanish media told ASK the reason for leaving Real, in a long letter. The football legend has somehow put the responsibility of leaving his club on Real’s shoulders. He said that his favorite club did not trust him anymore, so he was forced to leave the club, ‘I left the club, but never breathed to practice. I left the club in May 2016. Because, then, I thought, after two and a half years of success and so many titles, the team needs someone new to inspire. But now the situation is different. This time I am leaving the club because the club could not trust me like that. ‘
Zidane had some specific plans to take Real forward. Zidane said he had not received much help from the club to implement them. I understand football. Understand what Real needs. I know, when you can’t win, you have to move on. But here my achievements have been forgotten. ‘
He has won two leagues for Real and has won the Champions League three times in a row. His achievements are unmatched by any other coach in this era. Despite all his achievements, Zidane did not receive the respect he deserved from the club. I was born to win. I came here to win the title. But despite that, there are many things like people, life, emotions that need to be taken care of. Somehow I saw a tendency to put the blame on my neck. The success that we have all achieved here, I just wanted to see the look of respect in everyone’s eyes. ‘
The coach also said that his relationship with President Florentino Perez had a bit of a rift. “It would have been nice if my relationship with the club and the club’s president had been different for a few months,” he said. I’m not looking for any extra benefits; I just wanted recognition for the achievements of all of us. Nowadays, the term of coaches in any big club is less than two years. If you want to stay longer than this, you must build a humane relationship between the clubs. This relationship is bigger than money, fame. ‘
The French coach also blamed journalists for making the tough decision, saying: “It was painful to read what the media was writing about my possible cuts after losing a few matches. The news that I would be cut off if I lost the next match spread like wildfire among me and my squad players. That means no one in the news club leaked it to the media. Due to which a negative attitude has been created in everyone in the club, the environment has been poisoned, misunderstandings have been created. I also want to say something to the journalists. I’ve had hundreds of press conferences, but unfortunately we haven’t talked much about football. I don’t want to teach you anything, but it would be better if you didn’t ask questions about controversial issues all the time. ‘
But no matter what the situation, Zidane and his team-mates have done their best in any situation, the coach, who has coached Real on two occasions, said: ‘I know what the team wants. In the last 20 years, I have come to realize that the club’s fans just want to win – and that should be it. But it should be remembered that me and the players of my club have always tried to give the maximum. I can make sure we give our all. ‘
Zidane’s words will pierce the minds of Real supporters – it can be said for sure.
