Every game Real Madrid play under Zinedine Zidane is a referendum as to what he does or does not do for the team.

You could replace Zidane’s name with Jurgen Klopp for that matter and it wouldn’t change. The latter even poked fun at the insinuation in the news confe...

ESPN FC’s Dan Thomas and Stewart Robson head to Hydropark in Kiev to put their innovative way of predicting the Champions League winner to the test. Zinedine Zidane smiled that Zinedine Zidane smile, the one that sometimes seems to disarm them all. “I’m not the best coach, and I will always say that,” he said. “I am not the best coach tactically. And, well, I don’t need to say that…” There was a pause, and that was when that smile crept across his face and he added: “… because you lot always say that, anyway.” They laughed, but they knew he was right. Many a true word said in jest and all that, but beyond the smile, there was a hint of edge in his words, a point made. It was the Open Media Day at Valdebebas, Real Madrid̵...
