Real Madrid: Madrid defends Zidane and attacks the president of the French Federation
ANDhe with the statements by the president of the French Federation against Zidane has provoked the reaction of Real Madrid through a statement in which it criticizes Noel Le Graet. In the harsh official statement, the white club considers “a lack of respect” their statements and asks “an immediate rectification”.
For Nol, Zidane’s figure “was always under the radar, you don’t have to tell stories. He had many followers, some expected Deschamps to leave. But who can seriously criticize Deschamps? Nobody can. You can always fail a match, but I’ve been with him for 10 years, there haven’t been many problems. His departure always generates clicks “. Thus settled the rumors about the possible arrival of the former Real Madrid coach to the national team.
And he went further: “Zidane in Brazil? I don’t give a damn, let him go wherever he wants! He can go wherever he wants, to a club…”, he added and continued: “If Zidane tried to contact me? Of course not, I wouldn’t have even picked up the phone. To tell him to find another club? Make a special program for him to find a club or a selection.”
This provoked the unanimous response of footballers and ex-footballers and even the Sports Minister who defended Zidane, highlighting above all the figure of Mbapp: “He is a legend of France”.
Official statement from Real Madrid
Real Madrid CF regrets the unfortunate statements made by the president of the French Football Federation, Nel Le Grat, about Zinedine Zidane, one of the greatest legends of world sport.
These words imply a lack of respect towards one of the figures most admired by football fans around the world and our club expects an immediate rectification. Zinedine Zidane, world champion and European champion defending his country’s jersey, among many other titles, represents the values of sport and has demonstrated this throughout his professional career as a player and as a coach.
The statements by the president of the French Football Federation are inappropriate for someone who holds that representation and are self-disqualifying, like the ones he also makes about our captain Karim Benzema, current Ballon d’Or, League of Nations champion with France in 2021 and winner of 5 Champions League, among many other titles.
