Zidane’s First Training Session

Zizou’s first day in charge at Real Madrid is coming to an end….

But before the session kicked off, the 6,000 strong #HalaMadrid faithful at Valdebebas gave the icon a standing ovation once he took the field.

Some interesting quotes though coming out in regards to Gareth Bale and the disappointment in the Rafa Benitez sacking in the last 24 hours.

When asked about Bale (who wasn’t out on the field during the training session, insted working out inside in the gym), ZZ responded “I understand he can been annoyed with the departure of Benítez because he was an important coach for him but he is going to have the same affection [from me] as with Rafa. He is important for the squad, fundamental for the team. He’s phenomenal and what he has been doing recently is fantastic. I am going to give him all my affection and support so that he plays well for us.”

I said it yesterday during my show #CounterAttack on Sirius XM FC Ch. 85, Zidane understands players. Understands the mentality, frustrations and importance of communication. The ability to connect with these guys is something they are craving and something that he needs to be able to connect on as well to get the best out of them.

By the way, David Beckham co-signing on ZZ immediately after he was named manager…
