In the last round of La Liga, Real Madrid broke a big upset. At home, the White Corps lost 0-1 to newly promoted Magadis. According to the "Marca" report, Zidane was very angry after the game and he carried out a rectification within the team.
The battle between Real Madrid and Cadiz took place on Saturday local time. Last Sunday, Zidane held a rectification meeting before training. Zidane emphasized the issues of attitude and intensity of the game, and core players such as Ramos, Cross and Modric also spoke. The Real Madrid players admitted that the collective performance was poor and said that they would be adjusted in the Champions League this week.
Radio Zero pointed out that some Real Madrid players feel sad because they think they have been treated too harshly by the media
As the top team in the football food chain, Real Madrid means huge pressure. Real Madrid players who perform poorly will hear boos at the Bernabéu, and media criticism is overwhelming. "Aspen" now pointed out that Real Madrid are very worried about Marcelo's performance. At his peak, Marcelo was only an offensive full-back, but now he has become a non-offensive full-back.
After Zidane returned to Real Madrid, Marcelo's data is really horrible. In 54 league games, Marcelo started 26 games, Real Madrid record of 15 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses. In 28 league games where Marcelo came off the bench or did not play, Real Madrid has 19 wins and 9 draws and remains unbeaten. Zidane defended Marcelo and expelled Reggie Long, which also caused growing doubts.
