Beckham wants Zidane at Real Madrid regardless of UCL final result
Former Real Madrid player David Beckham has said that the Zidane must be given space at Real Madrid regardless of the result of the UEFA Champions League final on the 28th of May. He believes that his former Los Blancos team mate and part of 1998 French world cup winning squad should not be sacked even if the Whites stay trophy less this season because he has the quality to take the side to new heights and understands the dynamics of the club better than most people.
“No, I was not born to coach. But ‘Zizou’ was,” Beckham told XL Semanal.
“He, besides being a great friend, is the most passionate football and Real Madrid man I ever met and the best player I have ever played.
“It was natural that he had just coaching the team. His role, in any case, it is very difficult, because in the last five years Madrid has had to face the best club in history [Barcelona].
“When you compete against a team like that team, everything is complicated.”
Beckham added that Real Madrid need stability in order to proceed smoothly and Zidane is the right guy to achieve good things for the Los Blancos.
“Madrid needs stability and continuity would be nice,” the former England international said.
“‘Zizou’ needs time and to retain players today and even if he does not win the Champions League, it would be good to give Zizou space and let him work… stability is the key.”
