FC Barcelona are, despite the fact that the club is far in the Champions League and are in first place in the Spanish league, sacked Ernesto Valverde and replaced him with Quique Setien. It is now something that Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has responded to.
This is an interview with the Spanish sportsavis AS.
I feel sorry for Valverde. He is a great coach, which I respect, but in football each club their own goals. In the big clubs it's like this, and it's not going to change, he says, and continues:
- If we lose two games in a row, then it could also happen to me. We always try to give ourselves 100 percent, but if things don't go our way, I will be criticized. The media are the judge of who is good and bad, says the Zinedine Zidane.
Also told Zidane that the new Barcelona coach, Setien, will get a job, where Barcelona will be competitive no matter who they have as coach.
Quique Setien has previously been the coach of Las Palmas and Real Betis.
