The former Bulgarian player believes that what the Frenchman has achieved in Madrid is something unique, worthy of an excellent coach.
Dimitar Berbatov, legend of Manchester United and Tottenham, and one of the most talented players in recent years, spoke of Zinedine Zidane and of his recent success in Real Madrid.
“He deserves a statue at the door of the Bernabéu because what he has achieved with the return of the competition is amazing. I love it. It has an almost divine aura. He was top as a player and now he is still as a coach, “he said.
He also added: “He is a DT at the height of the greatest and that recognition deserves it. Not everyone can do what they have done with Madrid. You have to know how to manage a locker room, become their friend and that the players also know that you are the boss and that your word is worth it ”.
Berbatov was also blunt in describing the situation of Gareth Bale after, in the last two games, the Welshman has been on the bench pretending to be sleeping or watching the game with binoculars.
“I was surprised to see him wearing his mask as if he were sleeping. In no way can I support something like that. It shows a lack of professionalism and respect towards Real Madrid. He has crossed the line ”.
