Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal believes that Zinedine Zidane was brave to come back and take the manager job even though he knows the size of the task at hand, with the team on course to finish the season without a trophy.
Zidane had resigned as the manager of Madrid at the end of last season after guiding the club to their third successive Champions League trophy, saying he wouldn't be able to take them any further.
That seems certainly have been the case as both Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari were unable to help the team perform at a high level. Carvajal understands the predicament the team is in and thinks Zidane was brave to come back.
Carvajal on Zidane’s return: “It was the right decision, at the right time & the best thing that could happen to us. For Zizou to take the team at this moment makes him valuable for us. He’s very brave taking over knowing that the players confidence is low & playing for nothing.” pic.twitter.com/53RP6D2fbh— SB (@Realmadridplace) April 15, 2019
He told Marca: "It was the right one, at the time it was the best thing that could happen to us.
"Being without anything to challenge for since March is something I haven't experienced, but we have a good group," he added.
