French football living legend, Zinedine Zidane, is reportedly set to reign as Real Madrid’s manager after the La Liga giants failed to sign his compatriot, Paul Pogba.
WuzupNigeria recalls that Zidane made a similar shocking departure from the Bernabeu last year after leading Madrid to three consecutive UEFA Champions League trophy.
Speaking in a The Independent report, Spanish journalist Diego Torres says,
“Not signing Pogba puts Zidane on the brink of resigning.
“Zidane personally promised Pogba he would bring him to Madrid, and now he is left looking bad.
“This has only increased the lack of confidence between Zidane and Florentino [Perez, Madrid club president].”
It has been a mixed summer for the Bernabeu boss.
Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic are just two of the many signings that have carried Real’s spending over £300million.
But Zidane was promised total control over the complete squad overhaul he, and many others, saw as necessary after a dismal, trophy-less 2018/19 campaign.
