Mourinho And Zidane Are Great Managers, But Are Different - Sergio Ramos

Mourinho And Zidane Are Great Managers, But Are Different - Sergio Ramos
8/8/2017

Jose Mourinho had a rough spell at Santiago Bernabeu which is diagnosed by Real Madrid Center back Sergio Ramos to be due to his lack of understanding of the Madrid dressing.

Sergio Ramos suggested that the success of Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu is largely due to his understanding of the Real Madrid dressing room.

Jose Mourinho was in charge of Real Madrid from 2010 to 2013, winning the La Liga in 2011/12 season but had to leave after having issues with key players Iker Casillas, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ramos in the dressing room.

Comparing Jose Mourinho to Zinedine Zidane, helped the Spanish side win back to back Champions League titles, Ramos said

"My view is that when a team has a coach it changes, every coach is different because if his system, tactics, and personality," said the Spain and Madrid captain, taking an initially diplomatic tone.

"One coach is not necessarily better than another. They are just different.
"Zizou was very good at understanding our dressing room as a former player. Maybe that gives him an advantage.

"One can look at the picture and draw different conclusions. I believe both are great coaches. We are lucky to be living this historical moment with Zizou."

The Spaniard also laid waste the rumors that Jose Mourinho was key to his transition as a player.

"I don't think that changed my career at all," he said. "Mourinho was just another coach I worked with in my football career and I have always learnt from others, from when I was a youngster at Sevilla.

"So I am very, very grateful but I don't think Mourinho has changed my life in football at all."


In 2015, Sergio Ramos was linked with a move to Manchester United and the Spaniard is thankful he didn't make that move. 

"There was an opportunity [to join United] in the past but eventually my situation was resolved in a different manner," he added.

"We'll have to see what happens in the match, of course, but I am very grateful that I signed my last contract with Real Madrid.
"I am very grateful to Manchester United for the interest that they showed in the past but we are rivals now and we have to fight for the win."
