How Zidane ended Real's crisis
The Real squad has always believed in Zidane, but as is often the case when things don't go your way there were a number of murmurings of discontent from the dressing room. With that in mind, Zidane decided to put an end to Real's problems getting to the root of the problem and putting his cards on the table.
Now, results have returned to the sort of level that you would expect from a club of Real Madrid's stature and the crisis that previously engulfed the Bernabeu appears ot be over, for now.
There is no doubt that the backbone of the Real side always supported their manager, with Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric regularly voicing their support for the former Real Madrid playmaker.
Whatsmore, Zidane's ability to overcome the crisis whilst retaining the respect of his squad has made the Frenchman even more important at the club.
Zidane is the leader that everyone wants by their side and his advice and orders are listen to and executed by each and every member of the Real squad. His authority is unquesitonable and is only increasing.
The former French international showed he is not afraid of dropping the likes of Gareth Bale and Isco and playing the less fashionable Lucas Vazquez in their place until the due return to something like their best form.
Zidane never did and never would speak ill of his players and the team is aware of the Frenchman's efforts to protect his players, something that helps breed confidence and security.
Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo sat down to talk with the Frenchman when he was struggling to find the net and was the subject of criticism from the stands, with the results of that conversation clear for all to see.
