Zidane’s decision with those who played the worst against Real

“The squad is always in. We are all together. It is true that four goals are many and they hurt, but all the players are in and the plan does not change. You have to get up and move on, fighting,” he said. Zinedine Zidane after the loss to the Real society in the Santiago Bernabeu that cost the elimination of the Copa del Rey in the quarterfinals.

The French coach has never pointed to any player publicly before the media. Rather the complete opposite. He has always defended them and claimed them before criticism. Trust them and the best example is their alignment with the ‘txuri-urdin’ with several new faces. (Exclusive DC: in Madrid it is not convincing that Hazard plays in Pamplona)

Areola, Nacho, Militao, Marcelo, James or Brahim, among others, were in ‘11’ and the result could not be worse with the painful defeat and the painful elimination. The Frenchman received five shots (a bad clearance that cost 0-1 and four goals), the squad was inaccurate with the ball and weak defensively (he made up his match with 3-4). The Brazilian central did not connect well with Ramos and came out in several photos of rival goals. The Colombian was the first change to rest, while the Malaga performed well and got rid of the ‘burning’.

However the 'Marcelo case ’ It is the most worrisome. The second captain has lost the position in favor of Mendy and the numbers are right to Zidane (Madrid takes 715 minutes without receiving a goal with the French side on the green)). The Bernabeu He pointed to the carioca with a loud whistle as the goals fell, although he ended up applauding him for his goal and his delivery. It is far from its best version, both physical and game and does not aim to recover it.

Thus, Zizou I could point to several and not count on them in the two remaining competitions. Reasons you have to do it, but you will not do it. The white coach will not change his philosophy and will continue to have everyone (some like Areola, Marcelo, James, Brahim or Mariano they will have a testimonial presence and Nacho and Militao also if Ramos and Varane are not injured) in the 16 league games that remain and in the coming ones in the Champions against City.

The season is long, it goes around a lot and Zidane He loves you all. Also to Bale, which has four games without entering the call, but can still give ‘war’. He is interested in giving it to arrive with rhythm to the next Eurocup. No one knows what may arise with injury problems or possible penalties.
