SEE ALSO: Real Madrid’s Champions League Was Paid For By The Spanish Government
Things are suddenly looking rosy for Real Madrid after the impressive second-leg turnaround against Wolfsburg in the Champions League and Barcelona’s awful run of form in La Liga.
Zinedine Zidane’s style of management is clearly one that the Los Blancos lads respond to. Cristiano Ronaldo is back in form after a tense relationship with Rafa Benitez and spirits in training are clearly high having watched the above footage – go to 1:20 to see the lovely footwork, technique and finish from Madrid’s Colombian star, James Rodriguez.
Zizou’s brief spell with the La Liga giants so far is certainly showing that the former World Cup winner has the understanding, temperament and style to become a successful manager (even if Madrid do finish the season empty-handed).
The former Real Madrid player has helped ease tensions at the soap opera that is the Bernabeu, appeased fans with his style of play. However, his most remarkable achievement is that, for the first time ever at Los Blancos, a manager is seemingly going to be given time to build something organically rather than the usual splatter gun approach in the transfer market.
