Gary Neville is impressed with how Zidane helped turn Real Madrid to a formidable force.
The Los Blancos had a terrible start to the campaign, hence allowing Lopetegui and Solari leave during the 2019/2020 Spanish LaLiga season. But, Zidane rejoined the team he won three straight Champions League titles with, and helped them snatch the title off the hands of Barcelona who were on top of the league for most part of the season. Neville had a stint in the LaLiga with Valencia, but it was short-lived due to a run of poor performances at the Mestalla, and the Englishman was quick to recognize the effects of Zidane in a very difficult league.
“They won it on merit, They played the best championship. They scored goals and others didn’t score many against them. Real Madrid have ended the monopoly that Barcelona had. Real Madrid have taken advantage of Barcelona’s dip, but let it be clear that Real Madrid won thanks to their own merit, not because of others’ mistakes” Neville told Goal.
