Zidane’s letter to be released today!

As reported by C-Trick, Zidane is sending a 2-page letter to Real Madrid fans through AS, explaing the reason he left. If the rumours turn to be true, I think this a rare occasion in which Zidane say clearly what had happened. According to AS’ director, Zidane will criticize the club for the first time: “I’m leaving because the club doesn’t give me the trust I need.” Stay tune!

Apparently the letter has been leaked. Follow the thread:

I don’t know about you, but I think it is very sad to see a legend like Zidane leaving the club in this way.

Who will be the new coach?

According to football journalist César Luiz Melo, Pochettino is staying at PSG. Leonardo, PSG’s director, stated they’re happy with Pochettino and he has a 2 year contract with PSG. Per journalist Siro López, Conte, Raul and Xabi Alonso are also ruled out as candidates. The new coach will be someone who hasn’t been talked about a lot.
