The elimination of Real Madrid in Copa del Rey before him Alcoyano leaves Zinedine Zidane very touched. The French coach is signaled after falling to a 2nd B and say goodbye to the second title of the season in just six days. Despite this, when the white team left for Madrid, Zidane’s head does not pass the idea of resigning.
The gesture of the coach when he marches from The Collao it was a poem. He had suffered what is perhaps his most painful defeat as a Real Madrid manager. At least the most unexpected and frustrating. Happened, serious and crestfallen, that’s how Zidane got on the Real Madrid bus. The Gaul closed in on himself and in his circle of maximum confidence after the cupbearer disaster.
Despite this, Real Madrid is still alive in League and Champions and, except for a radical turn in the next few hours, Zidane will sit on the white bench to measure himself at Alaves this Saturday. The future is something else and nobody ensures the continuity of the coach beyond the end of the season or even the next few weeks if the team does not take flight.
The meetings this Thursday
This Thursday will be an important day, since it will be the moment to make a cold reflection of what happened against Alcoyano. There will be a conversation between the coach and the club, but no drastic decisions are expected from either side. The objective has to be to beat Alavés to continue in the fight for La Liga and reach the tie against him in the best possible condition. Atalanta in the Champions League in a month.
What no one takes for granted is who will coach Real Madrid next season. Zidane’s future is up in the air and it must be remembered that, in his first stage, he decided to leave the bench at the end of the season after a painful elimination in the Cup against him Leganes. The current situation has similarities with that, but also quite a few differences.
Anything can happen with Zidane, even that the team wins the League or the Champions League and ends up leaving as it did in 2018. What is certain at this time is that the coach left Alcoy with the strength to continue fighting despite the historic defeat in the field of El Collao.
11 years ago, in 2009, Real Madrid Pilgrims suffered the famous ‘Alcorconazo’ and the Chilean was marked. But neither Pilgrims en Zidane nor is this squad, since just a few months ago La Liga was won and also currently the crisis due to Covid-19 forces us to make all decisions with caution and exercising a deep work of responsibility.
Therefore, Zidane’s most difficult hours at Real Madrid will continue with the talk that he will have this Thursday with both the squad and the club and until the match against Alavés this Saturday at 9:00 p.m. Mendizorroza.
