Mendy pushes ahead of Marcelo

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 4,256

If there is a player who is winning over Zinedine Zidane, it is Ferland Moendy. The player has become solid for Real Madrid and through hard work, he is getting the better of a senior player like Marcelo.

Zidane has got lots in reserve. They all have chances of playing in the eleven. Even more so if they have the talent and the quality of Marcelo and Mendy

Both players are fighting for the spot week after week. Against Sevilla, the Real Madrid coach opted for Marcelo at left back. 

However, as the game progressed, Zidane changed his mind. Madrid were lacking something. 

It was 2-1 to Real Madrid, but Zizou was missing that strength in defence which Mendy gives the team. In the 71st minute, he decided to take off Marcelo and he brought the Frenchman on. 

Marcelo did not have his best match, far from it. As a result, he ended up being one of the changes. Mendy gave the RM defence that extra solidity. 

Time is going by and Real Madrid fans are delighted with Ferland Mendy's defensive work. They believe he is the left back for the future. Marcelo has been great for the club, nobody is in any doubt that Mendy will be up to standard.
