Zinedine Zidane had his second coming and, two seasons later, his second farewell from the Santiago Bernabéu bench that occurred this Thursday. The Marseille coach leaves the white club for the second time, not counting his retirement as a player, although with a very different flavor. If in 2018 the digestion of the third Champions was still done, This 2021 he does it after a difficult year and in which he was close to getting titles, but he did not get them.
The complicated results throughout the campaign have meant that the news about its continuity have been produced throughout the year. The last weeks, still with LaLiga at stake, these have multiplied and pointed out that it did not continue. As AS announced, the Frenchman finally leaves office.
In his last press conference as Real Madrid coach, Zizou was affected. “Very screwed up,” as he put it himself, and hinted at his future. They then asked him about his contract and talked about deciding. “This is not the time for that. The most important thing is not me, it is the players. I will speak with the club calmly later, not now. Of course I have to make a decision, calmly, patiently, I have a contract …” , he assured, answering different questions about its continuity.
“The balance is that we have not won anything, the players want to win, I have my share … We are going to value that. Today we have to be calm, in the next few days we are going to talk about it with the people of the club, that's it. Then soon we will see what will happen. Not only with me, with everything that Madrid is going to be next season, “he added about possible changes, some in which he was involved due to his personal decision.
In his last speech, the Frenchman stressed that he was well acquainted with the White House and stressed the importance of his demand. “The year we've had you have said, we haven't won and that's the way it is, we know it's Madrid. I tell my players and the fans that they have to think is to be proud of their players, “he declared in the Valdebebas press room one last time.
