15 Apr Real Madrid news: Zinedine Zidane courageous to return to Santiago Bernabeu, states Dani Carvajal
The Spanish full-back has commended the Frenchman for returning to Santiago Bernabeu at this challenging time for the club and it has players
Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal claims that Zinedine Zidane has been”courageous” to restart managerial responsibilities at the club near the end of a tumultuous 2018-19 effort.
The Blancos are poised to complete the season without a prize, after fighting to keep their high standards during the year under the stewardship of Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari.
The prior has been hailed to replace Zidane past summer – that left the club following masterminding a third consecutive European Cup triumph – but the Spaniard only lasted in the hot chair until November.
Solari fared little better entire despite a promising beginning and from the time his brief reign finished, Madrid were from their Champions League and Copa del Rey, while also confronting a tremendous points shortage in La Liga.
Zidane made a decision to go back to the Bernabeu in the beginning of March and that he has managed to manage three wins out of four to reestablish a feeling of confidence within the group.
Carvajal, however, admits that Madrid aren’t the exact same force they had been throughout the Frenchman’s first spell in charge, since he informed Marca of his own re-appointment:”It had been the perfect one, in the time it had been the best thing which would happen to us.
“We all know we do not play exactly the same, he understands that our confidence is low and he is blessed to take the work today.
“He understands us all really well, he understands the club and I believe he is the most appropriate”
Barcelona seem set to keep the Spanish name this year and they also possess a Copa del Rey final against Valencia to anticipate in May, while negotiating the latter stages of the Champions League.
Madrid have been not able to keep pace with their arch-rivals this period and procuring a runners-up league end before Atletico Madrid has become the club’s most important aim during the next seven matches.
Carvajal went on to say that even though the team has confronted a lot of hard challenges within the past 12 weeks, the gamers are united and concentrated on progressing for its 2019-20 effort.
“Being anything to battle since March is something that I have not experienced, but we’ve got a fantastic group,” he added.

“If you do not win the smiles are not the same. We are united, we are conscious that we have to work to proceed.
“We anticipate completing the season, winning the games that are abandoned and coming back next year.”
Up for Zidane’s guys is a visit to Leganes on Monday night and three factors could see Madrid return to within 2 points of Atletico from the La Liga standings.
