Every football club has had a messiah.
A man who has taken the club to the next level. Many greats come to mind but none greater than Sir Alex Ferguson who has changed the face for a certain Manchester United, currently the world’s biggest club (commercially).
Zidane was asked about following in on the footsteps of Sir Alex by taking Madrid to the next level. This is what he had to say.
“I don’t think I’ll ever be the Alex Ferguson of Madrid, for sure,” Zidane told a news conference.
“I want to enjoy what I’m doing. I don’t know how long I’m going to stay here, I don’t think about it.
“I think about the day to day and the luck I have to be at this great club and with these great players. I like it even in moments like these, not only when we win.
“These are things of life, as a person. I have to improve things but I don’t know until when. It’s been a long time in Spain, in Madrid, and I want to continue a little bit.”
“I’m happy about the game (Madrid won 2-0 and qualified as group winners). I think we played a great game. We knew what we were playing for,” he said.
“It was important. We had to win. as you say, we ended up as first in our group. It’s what we wanted to do. We went out and played a good game. The first half was spectacular and the second one was good. We did it in Saturday’s game and today we played even better.”
