Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane will look to defend La Liga next season and do better in the UEFA Champions League.
In spite of seeing their UEFA Champions League campaign halted prematurely, Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side managed to lock-in on two trophies in the 2019/20 season. During January, the Whites beat Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia to the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, and managed to win La Liga convincingly a few months hence.
While the squad managed to capture two pieces of silverware, it was certainly a season of ups and downs for the French coach’s side. There are still a lot of improvements and changes that can be made to the squad. Here’s a look at five such modifications that Zinedine Zidane must sought to make ahead of 2020/21.
REPLACE SERGIO RAMOS ON PENALTIES WITH THE FORWARDS
Sergio Ramos is an impeccable penalty taker and perhaps the best in the world. However, the Spain international’s job nature is far from being one. Instead, the responsibility must be passed onto the likes of Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema, whose performances are determined by the number of goals they end up scoring.
Benzema would have certainly beaten Lionel Messi to the Pichichi Trophy if he was on spot kicks and maybe, Eden Hazard would’ve had a few more goals under his belt as well. While the former has been praised nonetheless, the Belgian has been slandered for not scoring. A few penalties may have changed that and of course, amends can be made.
