Zidane admits he is still a learner

Despite the great achievement he has had in the morning of his coaching career, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane admits he is still a learner.

He affirmed that he is yet to see himself to be great at his job and stressed he was “not a magician” as he looks to halt a concerning run of form.

Just after taking the job at Bernabeu, the former player went ahead to win the supposed biggest troughy in Europe, UEFA Champions League

However, this season seems to be playing a different music as Zidane has overseen four consecutive draws in all
competitions ahead of today’s away match against Real Betis in LaLiga.

The former France international has been limited in what he can do with his squad as the vast majority of them have
been away on international duty, but he believes his players have come back with the right mindset.

Zidane stressed hard work would be his remedy with Madrid facing another four fixtures before the end of the month.

“The key for me is to find a solution to why we are drawing,” the head coach said at his pre-match media conference.‎“It is normal that you go through difficult moments. I never consider myself as a great coach.”

“It’s my job and I try to do it the best I can to find solutions. Anything can happen in this
game – you can win the Champions League and think you are the best trainer in the world – the only thing I can tell you is I want to keep on learning.”

“I haven’t invented anything and won’t be inventing anything in the near future. All I can do is give my experience as a player and then our players have to continue with that, working hard.”

Zidane continued: “I come in every day and try to learn what I can about my new job, new profession and at times it’s complicated.

“You can have the opinion you want, that’s your job, all I can do is try to change things here, do my job and with my
players try to turn things around.

“The players have not been here and there is very little we could have done with them until yesterday, though we have had a good week with the players that have been here.”‎
