    I had great respect for Zidane up until he started bashing Bale - no one should be treated like he has been, specially in public. Couldn't care less if he got the boot tbh - deserves it more like.

    It was admirable that he returned, but I think it will backfire on him.

    He left at the perfect time and the highest of highs a manager could achieve.

    Zidane would have been perfect for Juventus. A huge chance to win domestic titles, the presence of Ronaldo for the CL, his former club etc etc...

    I am surprised he didn't go there.

    Would have been great and allowed him to broaden his coaching ideals a bit more.

    I would be surprised if Zidane is still the Real manager next season. Probably good news for us though, because I'm pretty sure Jose would be his successor.

    Yep. I thought that was the nailed on club for him. Nothing really left to achieve at Madrid. Might still happen though, the Juve move. He's still a young manager. Hard to see how this Madrid stint goes well.

    Iirc wasnt he linked with the Juve job last year around October? Real Madrid are Real Madrid, they'll pick up wins just off individual brilliance but when it comes to a game with slim pickings and they need the tactics to work a treat, I'm not convinced Zidane is the right fit.

    It's going to be fun watching it all unravel when it goes wrong though.

    It probably had to do with family reasons.

    Not just Bale but his public courting of Pogba and deliberate unsettling tactics, I hope he gets sacked and Bale butts him on the way out ala Zidane himself in the WC

    Do people still want him as Utd manager if he gets the boot from Real (IF) we were looking for another manager ?

    But I thought they had a great transferwindow with Hazard, Jovic, Mendy, Rodrygo and Militao, and things were looking good for them?

    I think he is going to be exposed this season. He had Ronaldo and he carried his team for him. Pep he is not.

    It would be interesting if somehow, Zidane system completely goes to the trash because players don't understand it!
    And I hope Real gets completely destroyed during the first 10 games, while we keep winning.
    Pogba would then look at their team in a different light...

    Zidane's jeans + jacket combo remind me a little bit too much of the Money Supermarket ad:

    Watching Pogba's highlights vs Chelsea, he could have been an immense signing for them this season. Too bad Zizou, he stays!.

    I give him until December, before Mourinho is hired to clean up shop.

    I think so too, any players who would still revolt against his return are those who the hierarchy probably want to start thinking about moving on soon anyway

    I mean it doesn't look good when Marca out of all papers starts taking pot shots at you:

    Zidane is in a tactical mess

    They won 4 CL's in 5 years. What have we won in that time? The mighty Europa league?

    I can see them getting Poch. An appointment that doesn't close the door on signing Pogba.

    Poch at the end of the season makes sense, as I can't see him leaving Spurs part of the way through. I think that would be a bit disrespectful on his part and I can't really see that happening.

    Think he would do well there, tbh. Be interesting to see how he would fare with an almost endless budget.

    I don't think Poch would want him, and tbh they aren't particularly arsed over him either. It's just Zidane.

    Are you saying that Gareth Bale has won a World Cup, the Euros, a Ballon D’Or, and the FIFA world player of the year 3x?

    But Bale has more goals! Of course, it’s a given a forward would score more than a midfielder, but still.... more goals!

    Some people need to be banished permanently in the noobs. Can we have a promotion/relegation system with likes and dislikes? @Niall @Raoul.

    What are you on about. Zidane is a world cup, champions league and ballon d'or winner. Putting Bale in the same sentence as Zidane as players is such a ridiculous notion in itself that it's not even funny.

    Zidane is amongst the best ever to ever play the game of football and a generational talent while Bale clearly isn't.

    I would rather we get Mourinho back, Zidane would struggle to beat Macclesfield without Ronaldo and as a person he is an enormous cnut.

    Bale achieved more than Zidane? :lol:
    More CL's yeah, but Zidane's overall career is clearly much better than Bale's.
