Zinedine Zidane insists he doesn't want signings despite Real Madrid 'crisis'

Zinedine Zidane insists he doesn't want signings despite Real Madrid 'crisis'”

"Period. We began with a squad and I believe in my players", he said.

There have also been calls in the wake of the draw at Celta Vigo on Sunday for Madrid to sign reinforcements in the transfer window, but Zidane remains insistent he does not want any new players this month.

It might not be long before Zidane has no choice, though. I'm just a person who works for the club.

"You can analyse it as you like, that it's a moment of crisis or not, but we're here to find solutions".

There has been much debate as to the reasons behind Real's inconsistencies this season.

Brussels has always been a dreamland for comic book nerds, who can embark on guided tours inspired by The Adventures of Tintin, the Smurfs and the Asterix series. Let's see what happens at the end of the season.

There are few club-manager marriages that are made in heaven but there is a common thread running through the vast majority, from Bob Paisley and Jock Stein to Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti - all were coaches who played for the club they would later lead to glory.

The weekend setback, coming in its first league game since the demoralizing 3-0 home loss to Barcelona last year, reignited talks of a crisis at the Spanish giant.

Perez is likely to pull rank in the Galactico department after what has been a remarkably frugal two years under Zidane and the fact that several potential targets idolize the current boss is an ace up El Presi's sleeve.

"Sometimes a talk is necessary", Zidane said.

That wealth of familiarity with the club is an asset in itself, but Zidane's aura extends beyond the Bernabeu. I've watched a number of their games this season where there's been indiscipline in the midfield. That decision did not go down well with senior players, led by a particularly vehement Cristiano Ronaldo, who wasted little time in stating during Benitez's ill-starred reign that he would like to work with his former boss again.

That means they lie fourth in the table, 16 points behind Barca, the unbeaten leaders, as the halfway stage in the season approaches.

The successful defence of their Spanish title now looks a tall order, while Real also face a testing encounter with Paris St Germain for a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The Real president is no stranger to the caprice of the managerial merry-go-round. Perez's departure in 2006 proved Camacho correct.

"Kroos and Modric were playing right and left wing, so there was no relationship between those two". With an abundance of activities and events, the project will provide an insight into the life and times of these artists. After all, who else is going to do it?
