Zinédine Zidane refused to reveal his feelings on the SuperLeague.
Since the announcement of the creation of the European SuperLeague, all question coaches know that they will not be able to escape journalists’ questions on the subject. And this Tuesday, Zinédine Zidane, the coach of Real Madrid, was in a press conference on the eve of the meeting between Cadiz and the Madrid club.
But Zizou immediately dotted the i’s: “I will be direct in my response. The question concerns only one person, President Perez. I’m here to talk about the game. It’s good to ask the question, everyone will have their own opinion. But I’m not here to talk about it. I’m here to talk about tomorrow’s game. From La Liga, from the Champions League … The rest is not my job. “
Obviously, this did not discourage the journalists who systematically relaunched Zidane on the SuperLeague but the 1998 world champion did not crack: “I have my opinion, but I’m not going to give it to you. I know that you (the journalists, editor’s note) are going to say that Zidane never gets wet, but it’s the truth. My job is what I do. It’s Wednesday’s game. The rest I can say, comment, but it is not useful. Me, it’s Cadiz. “
Winner of the Champions League as a player (2002), assistant coach (2014) then number one coach (2016, 2017, 2018), Zinédine Zidane is very attached to this competition in which his team has yet to compete in the semi-finals against Chelsea, another club which has expressed its intention to leave the flagship UEFA event to join the SuperLeague.
