Champions League

Real Madrid changed the history of European football. Uefa’s Champions League is the most prestigious tournament in the world. The team that won it once is already in the books of history. Zidane took Real Madrid’s squad (by that time) and changed the game!

 

The job was half-done by Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian coach was the leading manager of Real Madrid for two seasons. Los Blancos was won a long-awaited tenth Champions League trophy along with Carlo Ancelotti. Don’t forget that Carlo’s team was excellent in the attacking line. Also, Carlo’s principal assistant was Zinedine Zidane. Yes, the French coach was already in the club’s top management during the 10th Champions League trophy.

After Carlo departed from Real Madrid, Zidane was appointed in the middle of the season. Yes, the team struggled in La Liga, but the French coach had a good strategy. As it seems, Zidane is an excellent motivator. Footballers were saying that Zidane’s voice was the biggest in the room. Dani Carvajal once said that everyone is always listening to Zidane’s words. Even the actual footage of the half-time Champions League finals confirms that Zidane was the best motivator.

 

Unstoppable squad

Real Madrid has an extensive history. Many top-tier players have been playing under Real Madrid t-shirt. It seems that Zidane’s squad was the biggest because they made history. Real Madrid had top-tier players in every possible position. And it’s not even enough – they were already playing together many seasons. When you understand the partner on the pitch, it significantly influences the results.

The most famous midfield in Europe

Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro – these three players won 3 consecutive Champions League titles. Zidane has not changed the system for three years and was visible on the pitch. Brazilian Casemiro was the best defensive midfield for many seasons, according to La Liga and Uefa. At the same time, Toni Kroos was dominating the control of the ball. Luka Modric was doing some magic in the midfield and helping the attacking line connect with the down-line. Keep in mind that Luka Modric won the Ballon d’Or too. He took the national team to the finals of the World Cup. Croatia lost the finals against “Le Blues”, but they won the hearts of millions of fans around the globe. Midfield players were very keen on influencing the result and pace of the game.

Sergio Ramos & Cristiano Ronaldo

Along with Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos was a true pitch leader. The team captain was scoring and helping the team at the most critical moments. Remember that Sergio Ramos’s header made possible the tenth Champions League trophy. Ramos’ another header against Atletico Madrid made the 11th Champions League trophy possible. Cristiano Ronaldo was a scoring machine, and he also had a significant influence on the team’s results. This duo was deadly, and everyone knew it during the critical moments of the matches. Zidane’s impact on the team made it possible to win three consecutive Champions League trophies with that squad.
