Zinedine Zidane teaches everyone 2 important life lessons in just a few months
The Frenchman had to endure plenty of critique since coming back to the Bernabeu. However, Zidane had managed to solve our problems and reminded everyone of two simple, but crucial lessons.
1. Stay calm and patient despite your problems
We have had a pretty disturbing start to the season. Losing 3-7 against Atletico, drawing both Valladolid and Villarreal - enough to start worrying. Also, that 0-3 clash with PSG did not feel good at all.
Despite his legendary status at the Santiago Bernabeu, Zinedine Zidane was constantly criticised and bombarded with uncomfortable questions during pressers.
Look at him now! The first trophy of the campaign has already been won with the whole squad ready to destroy everyone in our way in other competitions. Who dares to doubt Zidane now?
2. Only talk when it really matters
Our manager is not known for causing controversy with public statements.
Nevertheless, Zidane can and does use his words in the best way possible. When he needs to.
The latest display against Atletico Madrid and the manager's team talk during the small break in the extra time are a testament to that. The Frenchman knew what our players needed to hear that night.
"You have to be calm, there is still time. We will go out to play. We are better than them and stronger above all," said the boss on Sunday, doing enough to win the trophy.
In case someone does not get it yet - you need to trust Zinedine Zidane. Many supporters can learn from his example. Patience and self-composure - who would not want to have that?
