Real Madrid have reportedly given assurance to Zidane about providing sufficient backup despite having a mediocre start to the present season
Real Madrid has the services of one of the best managers in the world as the Spanish champions are presently coached by Zinedine Zidane. The Frenchman started his managerial career back in January 2016 when Los Blancos sacked Rafael Benitez in the middle of the season and had entrusted the job to one of their own legendary players.
The former Juventus man has not disappointed the club since he was appointed as the 48-year-old has helped the team win three consecutive Champions League trophies also famously known as the “three-peat”. Los Merengues went on to win 9 major trophies under the former World Cup winner and still are eager to bag some major laurels in the ongoing season.
However, the French coach has had a tough start to the season as the Whites have dropped to 3rd spot in the league table with only 7 points in their first four matches. The Spanish Champions tasted their first defeat this season as Real Madrid surrendered their three points to Cadiz CF in a 1-0 defeat.
According to recent reports, certain newspapers were publishing stories about Zidane facing a possible sack by the middle of the season if he is not able to bring in results for the club. However, this type of speculations has often surfaced in the past as the Spanish Media has often tried to create unnecessary panic among the clubs.
Zizou has been no novice to such premeditated claims by the Spanish media as the Real Madrid legend has had to face similar situations in his past. There have been various sources who have also claimed that the Madrid hierarchy will give full backing to the Frenchman irrespective of the results achieved by their team.
Los Blancos will know that the present season has a long way to go and therefore hitting the panic button will not be the wisest choice for the club. The likes of Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema are expected to help the side in overcoming this short crisis as the team has a run of important fixtures headed their way this month including the all-important El Clasico on 24th.
