The Zinedine Zidane Factor

The club manager, Carlo Ancelotti, finally got a means to unite the team under one umbrella. He succeeded by making every player to play for the greater glory rather than individual or personal honour.  under Don Carlo’s, Los Blancos at finally figured how to win the 2014 version of the Champions League, with Ronaldo seemingly as his life.

Finally, the approach of the coach was becoming faulty after they failed to win the trophy in the year 2005. Therefore, he hired Rafa Benitez to control the team in future undertakings.

Rafa was not the issue, but the team seems to stray further.   Spaniard was given some autonomy through the half of the season to be in control of the club. And after Raza, the club legend, Zinedine Zidane collected the batton.
