COACH ZINEDINE ZIDANE: ”I WANT TO STAY WITH REAL MADRID FOREVER.”

The renowned French coach once again gave talks about his future in Bernabeu regarding the rumor revealing that Coach Jose Mourinho is bound to take on the senior coach of Real Madrid soon.

2 days after the failure to Mallorca with the final score of 0-1 in La Liga, Coach Zinedine Zidane continued to turn up in public to give talks with journalists about the match with the Champions League. Real Madrid, at that time, set the goal of scoring 3 points after an unsuccessful beginning of being a loser to PSG and ending up with a draw in the match with Club Brugge

When being asked about his future in Real Madrid under the rumor of being replaced, the French coach answered; ”This question should be given to other people as I still want to stay with Real Madrid now and forever. I have been here for almost 18 years since the day I was a Real Madrid player. Rumors have truly disappointed me recently. My team only wants to score 3 points in the next match and we will try our best.”

”Criticism and rumors of Coach replacement will never come to an end. These are where pressure origins from. We all know how Real Madrid’s performances have been recently. We had a terrible beginning in Champions League, however, we are standing the chance of changing the position tomorrow.” coach ZINEDINE ZIDANE added.

Real Madrid was facing the risk of playing for the Europa League if they will not have more outstanding performances as well as gain more achievements in the Champions League. Meanwhile, the failure to Mallorca also took away the record of being undefeated in La Liga of Real Madrid, at the same time losing the top 1 to Barca. 

Is Pep Guardiola lucky to lead strong teams in his career? (Part 2)

In the center of the defense, Pep brought John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, the excellent central midfielders. In particular, the deal with Laporte really worth “money for rice bowl”. Pep confirmed the French center-back deserves a price of 57 million pounds.


Most teams attack or counterattack based on the speed of the wingers. In Man City, Laporte plays an important role in speeding the ball forward. The reason given by Pep is that Laporte is left-footed. He always observes and pays attention to every detail to build the football of his will effectively.

“It is important that Laporte is left-footed. When he receives the ball from the right wing, he immediately turns and turns to the left, giving the ball to Leroy Sane. In this position, Laporte will deploy the ball faster than the right footed player.

If the ball goes into the middle, he can coordinate with Riyad Mahrez. Laporte helps Man City have 2 faster deployment plans. The important thing is that City must have left-back center-left, “Pep said in October 2018.

Dark art

In addition, Pep also calculated the error. A central midfielder who receives a yellow card is safer than the defensive players. When facing Man City, you will face foul situations from the middle of the field that experts call tactical foul.

According to Opta, Man City stand 2 and 3 in the percentage of tactical errors in the 2 seasons of 2019/20, 2017/18. Currently, the team leading this stat is Arsenal, the team that just appointed Arteta as the head coach in December 2019.

Gary Neville, a former Man United player, once criticized Pep for applying tactical fouls, but Pep has his own reasons. When the team has more control and attacks, they face the risk of more counterattack. And making tactical mistakes is part of helping them win from stopping goals.

Unlike Neville, the Telegraph appreciated the tactical error from Man City when Fernandinho gave the beautiful phrase: “The pinnacle of dark art”. The Brazilian midfielder plays an extremely important role in the squad that Pep built. He is the person with the most tactical fouls in the City team.

According to the Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, ”special coach” Mourinho has left him with a mess in MU when he was fired in December 2018. However, also thanks to several former players since ”Mourinho” time, along with newbie players that Solsa has brought to MU such as Harry Maguire, Aaron Want-Bussake, Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo, 

MU’s performances are at its high peak throughout history. 

Since taking over MU for Mourinho since December 2018, Solskjaer has canceled 9 playing contracts and signed 4 new transformation ones with other players. 

It is considered to be a revolution for Manchester United’s formation.

I know that these changes can bring back effectiveness and revolutionary differences.”

Is Pep Guardiola lucky to lead strong teams in his career? (Part 1)

Absolute control

In the summer of 2016, Pep officially left Bayern Munich to take over as the head coach at Man City. At that time, Joe Hart was the captain and goalkeeper of the Etihad Stadium. He was also the main catcher in England’s goal in EURO 2016. In the Premier League, Hart is also one of the top goalkeepers.

However, Pep does not want to use Hart because the English goalkeeper does not play well. He prefers absolute ball control and short passes from the home court are the foundation. With Pep, a long ball to the top up the risk of losing the ball. When Pep was leading Barca or Bayern Munich, he had good goalkeepers like Victor Valdes, Jose Pinto and Manuel Neuer.

He then brought in Claudio Bravo and Ederson Moraes, virtuosity goalkeepers. With Ederson, Man City can deploy the ball in a unique way. Pep directed the two central defenders deep back to attract the opponent striker. At that time, the two full-backs of Man City surged and waited for the correct pass from Ederson. The Brazilian goalkeeper can also pass a short pass to the central midfielder who has retreated. He always gives quality passes.

Ederson is always confident with the ability to handle his feet. He thinks that he can play well in midfield. He used to create assists from the home side to Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling to score.
