Zinedine Zidane is again back in the front cover. This time, it’s not because of any news regarding the transfer market or any crazy idea he has with his players, but a really strange reaction he had in the last game his team played. The French master went completely mad and his men ended up deeply confused.
Last Tuesday, Real Madrid hosted Getafe in a pending match from La Liga’s Round 01. The home side won 2-0 following the goals scored by Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy in the second half. Zidane’s men proved much stronger, but they had strong resistance from Getafe’s goalkeeper David Soria.
Now, why did he burst in anger as he did? It was not an easy week – for many days media started to speculate on his future in the club, reporting even some other coaches’ names to replace him sooner than later. He celebrated very effusively Benzema’s goal, hitting the bench and whirling a bottle.
As little notes, the match showed Brazilian left-back Marcelo playing again for the first team, despite having some physical issues and swapping positions with fellow countryman Casemiro. After this win, Real Madrid are in second place of the table. Atlético de Madrid leads on 51 points, having two matches less than their rivals. Barcelona is in third, on 43 points.
