    I believe that the one who have to go is Zidane with his old faction.

  2. Nana says:

    He is a good player so dont get what Zidane is doing

      Well me think he is showing lack of respect for the guys playing ahead of him.

  3. RR says:

    If he wasn’t going to be featured, why bring him back from la real? He could’ve developed even more. Smh

    1. jakepr says:

      That’s the main question. Zidane clearly wasn’t interested in him when he was there before.

  4. Rex says:

    I dont think its any thing personal he is saving him for the future as you see the Modric’s the Kroo’s and and all others will soon be too old to play for Madrid so leave the the coach alone.

  5. Parle says:

    Zidane simply wasting young talent every year,why are Real even negotiating contract extensions with the likes Modric (35 year old).The team needs to focus on the future (Valverde,Odegaard etc) thank our old guard for their services (Modric,Marcello,Ramos & Zidane)and just move on.

  6. Stan B says:

    No comment, education ,vision, filling is a very sensitive issue

  7. Pepe says:

    He perdido el respeto por Zidane, obviamente ha perdido toda habilidad para tomar buenas decisiones. Demuestra los últimos resultados y el vergonzoso trato del maravilloso Martin Odegaard.
