It's a very different atmosphere in Valdebebas now that Zidane has taken over. According to Jugones, players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco, James or Ramos are very happy with Zidane's work these two days and their attitude is much better already.

As it can be seen during Zidane's first meeting with the players, everyone respects Zidane very much and that will be a very important thing going forward. "They have experience and our relationship will probably be different from the one I had with the Castilla players but the message will be the same: We need to play with intensity and focus at all times," said the French coach.

Either way, it will be very important for Zidane to connect with his players and build a good relationship with them in order to succeed. They got along well when Zidane was Ancelotti's assistant coach and that probably means that the same will happen now.
