There was no wardrobe conspiracy; Zidane did speak to the squad

Unlike what happened after Kiev's 2-0 against Shakhtar, this time the players did not come together to tackle the crisis. Zidane did send a message of optimism.


Real Madrid is in crisis after achieving only one victory in the last five games and after two defeats in a row that have meant saying goodbye to two titles, the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa del Rey, the latter with a special aggravating circumstance: it has been eliminated for a Second B like Alcoyano. A tough moment in which one would expect a wardrobe conspiracy that did not occur this Thursday, unlike previous moments.In December, after Whites' defeat in Kiev against Shakhtar (2-0) and with Madrid on the verge of elimination in the Champions League, the dressing room was conjured. Ramos called the players 90 minutes before starting the next training session after the defeat to put the team's problems in common and seek solutions, a sincere talk in which the role of Zidane was valued and from which the best came out Madrid moment in the course.

After that, Madrid won in Seville, then Borussia in the Champions League (they went first in the group), then Atleti ... and so on up to six victories in a row, showing good effectiveness in attack and great defensive solvency. The conspiracy worked, which is why it is surprising that it did not occur after the stumble in Alcoy, which left several members of the squad very touched and especially Zidane.

Zidane did give a talk

'Gol 'reported that the players had arrived in Valdebebas with the time necessary to start training, with no room for talks of any kind, and that they left the facilities after the session. Sergio Ramos, in fact, arrived just in time to exercise, although he did so within the facilities to solve the discomfort he is going through and that make him doubt for the visit to Alavés on Saturday in Mendizorroza.

Of course, Zidane gave a talk to the players after Alcoy's blow, according to 'La Sexta'. It was a brief conversation, lasting five minutes, and around two axes: leaving the defeats in the Super Cup and the Cup in the past and thinking that the most important thing is ahead in the calendar, the League and the Champions League.
