Present at a press conference this Saturday on the eve of facing Getafe, Zinedine Zidane spoke in turn on the remarks of the president of OM, Pablo Longoria, concerning the French coaches. The Real Madrid technician defended the French team.
After his media release this week in El Pais concerning their training, Pablo Longoria continues to make French coaches react. The new president of OM has drawn the wrath of French tacticians after arguing that France is “one of the countries which exports the fewest coaches” and that French technicians “do not sell collective ideas . “
Words that have fueled a big controversy this week, including reacting Raymond Domenech, Bruno Génésio, Antoine Kombouaré, Frédéric Antonetti or Rudi Garcia.
Pablo Longoria’s words reached Zinédine Zidane’s ears. Present at a press conference on the eve of facing Getafe, the Real Madrid coach has in turn stepped up to defend the French training model: “Training is very good in France, both in terms of players , coaches, physical trainers … at all levels. No, I do not share this point of view. Quite the contrary. “
French coaches stung
Pablo Longoria will not have failed to make the tricolor coaches this week. Appointed at the head of Olympique de Marseille for a little over a month, the Spanish leader has alienated several technicians from the championship.
If the criticisms leveled at the training of players and coaches have reacted a lot, the French tacticians have not really responded to the Spaniard’s reservations about the ideas and concepts of play put in place in the Hexagon.
