Real Madrid midfielder Luka Madrid has explained the difference between the Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez and Zinedine Zidane.
Modric worked with these managers at Real Madrid at one point at the Santiago Bernabeu and he understands all the coaches gave distinct characters and differ in their managerial acumen.
“Mourinho was key in my signing for Madrid. I am sorry I only worked with him for a year. I will always be grateful to Mourinho for taking me to Real Madrid.
He is tough and strong, but he is honest and always tells the truth to your face”
“Ancelotti is a spectacular coach. And even more as a person. We played very well with him.
We had two spectacular years with him, winning the Champions and the Copa, playing great football. I still talk to him from time to time.”
“Benitez hasn’t done well at Madrid but he’s a great coach. That’s football. Not every football coach arrives to a team and has success.
I did not have any problem with him. The outside of the boot thing was something that happened in a training session, but it was nothing, we didn’t get on poorly.”
“Zizou is a top manager. What he has done with us these years is unrepeatable.
It gives me the feeling that people do not appreciate him as a coach, he is always questioned. He’s one of the best! I wish that all of the world saw him as untouchable at Madrid.”
“When you listen on TV or to the radio there are complaints and criticisms of Zidane.
There are some criticisms that don’t even make sense. He’s a spectacular coach. The way he fits us is like a glove. He is ideal for Real Madrid. Zidane could be like Ferguson or Wenger in England.”
