Zinedine Zidane has found greater prominence in the decisions of the club during its second stage. However, nothing can be done without the final approval of Florentino Pérez . An important player in Atlético de Madrid de Simeone was close to being searched by the merengue club, but the last and most important Madrid Alcabala did not pass.
The relevance of the center of the field to Zidane is no longer a secret. The coach has a great obsession with balance, so players like Casemiro and Fede Valverde are vital pieces for the operation of the team.
In the case of Casemiro, it is the player who accumulates more minutes in the season. This causes a higher risk of muscle injury when the team has to play every 3 and 4 days. So that this does not happen next season, the merengue strategist asked Thomas Partey as an alternative to Case .
Florentino was the one who refused to move chips for the mattress player, claiming that he would not improve the quality of players already in the squad. Finally, a 26-year-old soccer player was discarded quite interesting and with an affordable price .
Zidane and Florentino Pérez don't give truce
Neither Zidane nor Florentino are willing to lower the revolutions of an internal dispute for years. Although Zizou is actively involved in decisions, it is not who has the final word. It is normal for the coach to decide whether or not a player adapts to his game scheme. The case of James Rodríguez is a vivid example of the side effects that the lack of unanimity between the two can generate.
We will see if this love-hate relationship between Zidane and Florentino Pérez improves with the arrival of some new title for this season. Apparently, 3 Champions League in a row were not enough to convince.
