Ex-Real Madrid President’s response when asked if Wenger could replace Zidane

Ex-Real Madrid President’s response when asked if Wenger could replace Zidane

Real Madrid are on the look-out for a new manager after Zinedine Zidane resigned from his post.

There are strong rumours in Spain that departed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a contender to take over at Real Madrid, with bookies slashing odds on the Frenchman taking over at the Bernabeu as news of Zidane's exit was confirmed.

"It's a odd moment, but this team needs a change to keep winning, it needs another speech, another work methodology and that's why I made this decision". "After three years I need another discourse, another method of working", he told a hastily convened press conference. I will be close to this club all my life, but the decision makes a lot of sense.

"But we have to change", said Zidane. I thank him for his commitment, his passion.

Sub Gareth Bale scored a stunning overhead kick in between two howlers from Liverpool keeper Loris Karius to give Real Madrid their third UCL title in a row. He knows that I wanted to sign him more than anyone as a player, as well as a coach. It took Zizou only 23 months to achieve this, where during this period he won 2 Champions Leagues, 2 World Club Cups, 1 La Liga, 1 Spanish Super Cup, and 2 Uefa Super Cups.

The French football legend led Los Blancos to nine trophies in just under three seasons, including that remarkable treble of Champions League triumphs.

It was just 12 days prior to that occasion that the midfielder shocked the world when he announced his retirement from football to Canal +, and nobody in the Spanish capital saw it coming.

The bombshell decision came 12 years after another stunning blow from Zidane brought a controversial close to the midfielder´s global career.

"I would have liked to convince him to stay on but I know what he is like".

"I have a special love for this fanbase". I think it's the right time. I'm not looking for another team. Real Madrid have the players he needs and will get him the ones he asks for as well.
