Two consecutive defeats hurt at Real Madrid. Much . And more in the way they have been produced. There is nothing missing, but the alarms have already gone off. The image offered in the first half against Cádiz and especially against Shakhtar in the premiere of the Champions League , has installed concern in Real Madrid. From the ordinary fans, through players and coaches and finishing with the leaders, they live with uncertainty and some fear the next matches of the team. Barcelona, Borussia Moenchengladbach, Huesca and Inter, which will serve to close this first part of the group of the highest continental competition and which has started in the worst possible way, will mark the future of Real Madrid. The pressure has already come and only the results can soften a fully loaded environment. Nobody talks about a change in the bench, but neither can it be said that there is blind trust in Zinedine Zidane. It will be the games that mark the future of the team and the coach. The players know that their stay is guaranteed, the coach does not . Soccer law. The technician does not think about taking a step to the side.Zidane has been faithful to his script. He has surprised many with his choices, but he has not fooled anyone. Knowing the special circumstances that were going to surround the last summer market, he defended his own and for the moment they are not responding as the French expected. The technician says he is sure he can reverse the situation, but the tests come too early this time.The coach is in the hands of the players and he knows it. Neither he plans to leave, nor the club to stop him from his position as coach, but everyone knows that at Real Madrid critical situations push the entity to the limit and decision-making . The Frenchman shielded the group last summer. He freed himself from the players he did not want to have by his side such as Ceballos, James and Bale and transferred his confidence to those who stayed, but the response is not being what was expected, at least by the coach. The coach knows it, but Zidane will go to the end with his team.Keep believing in them and their football, even if it’s hard to believe. He blames himself for what is happening, but he knows that the situation cannot be prolonged in time and only his squad can be the one that stops the team’s fall and with it, that of the coach who has been three-time Champions of the Champions League. consecutively.The problem that Zidane is finding is that those players who were decisive in their day have ceased to be so no matter how much faith he has in them. It has not been able to give the relief that every team needs and the answer does not come in a group that begins to doubt how far it can go and in which the trust between one and the other is no longer the same.Younger people like Vinicius and Rodrygo can not find a place due to the lack of continuity and their contribution has diminished over time, such as Valverde’s , or Militao’s , who cannot clear doubts or a Jovic away from what he likes in Madrid as delivery and claw. Veterans like Marcelo and Isco (far from their physical best moment), Lucas Vázquez and even an insecure Varane are light years away from what they were, but they still have time. And it is that Zidane is in his hands.
