Newly appointed Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is convinced he can rescue Real Madrid’s season after being appointed as Rafael Benitez’s successor.
“I want to thank the club and the president for the opportunity to coach this club. It’s the best club in the world with the best fan-base. I will do my very best so that at the end of the season this club will have a trophy.
“I will work hard with all the players and I think it will go well. I’m looking forward to working with everyone tomorrow. Tomorrow is when the work starts.
“It is an important day for me and an emotional day. Even more than when I signed as a player.
“I will put all my heart into this job and for the club.” Zidane said as quoted on thefantasyfootball.com
Real Madrid are putting their faith in an internal handover despite Zidane having failed to set the world alight during his first year in charge of Castilla. Florentino backed him to the hilt and was confident that Zizou would fare better in his second season at the helm of the B-team, and so it has proven.
