Goal.com: According to his former team-mate, the French coach will enjoy great success as Real Madrid coach but must be granted time by the fans.
Here is the thing, clubs like this are not patient...for anyone. Madrid does not develop players they loan them out or buy the finished deal. As for managers its compounded... Roberto Carlos says... "Most importantly the fans of Real Madrid need to have patience, as Zidane has just arrived. He has to build his team, build it around the players he trusts and from there will come titles.' Zidane gets lucky this year because managers that come in mid seasons are not expected to perform miracles. But come this time next year if they arent in first place in a comfortable fashion he will be replaced.
