Marcelino: Zinedine Zidane perfect for Real Madrid

Valencia boss Marcelino believes Zinedine Zidane is the ‘perfect’ Coach for Real Madrid: “He brings a winning identity and mentality.”

Los Che – who are unbeaten in 16 games across all competitions – face Madrid on Wednesday, with Zidane winning each of his opening two games at the helm.

“Zidane and Madrid have a perfect tandem that leads to victories,” Marcelino told his pre-match press conference, as cited by Marca.

“If you look at his record with Madrid, he has won nine titles from a possible 14 at the club and he brings an identity and mentality which is based on winning in key moments.

“This is a club who starts every game with the intention to win it, this is based on their history and it is how they approach every aspect of their season.

“We want to face the best version of Madrid on Wednesday, the rotations against Huesca suggest that they will and we hope this is a memorable match.”
