David Beckham has stated that former France midfielder Zinedine Zidane is the best manager for Real Madrid.
He said that the French manager has a thorough knowledge of the club during his time playing for the club and that he is the right person in the right place.
David Beckham believes that Zinedine Zidane can have the same impact that Pep Guardiola had at Barcelona and he believes that the team is progressing under him.
The former England midfielder said that Zidane was a successful player and has won various trophies with different clubs. This places him in a position where he can understand players and know what they need.
David Beckham believes that Real Madrid has some great players in Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo and that they are definitely going to compete for trophies this year. He said that La Liga has also become quite competitive with clubs such as Atletico Madrid and Sevilla competing for trophies now. He believes that this is a good thing for competition as sometimes fans can become fed up to see only Barcelona and Real Madrid competing for the title.
He has advised Zinedine Zidane not to listen to some pundits that said that the French manager does not have the necessary experience to manage at this level. He believes that Zidane has done well so far for Real Madrid and that there is no reason to replace him. He said that Real Madrid had performed well in the Champions League ever since Zidane took charge of the team and he believes that there is no reason why this will not continue.
Beckham believes that the Spanish side has a good squad this season and that they should be able to challenge Barcelona all the way for the title.
