According to a report from ABC Deportes, an unnamed member of Real Madrid told the newspaper, in response to Zinedine Zidane’s letter written in AS this morning, that the club is surprised about the whole thing.

“It’s sad,” the person told ABC. “Personally, I think it has been unfair,”

That same report states that Florentino was surprised by Zidane’s letter, but that he has no intention of responding nor giving any attention to it, and has zero interest in damaging a valuable friendship. The report states that Real Madrid view Zidane as a club legend who will always have the respect of the club, and that Florentino Perez — who was ‘more impacted’ by the Frenchman’s departure in 2018 than he was this week — believes that time will heal all wounds, and that he’ll ultimately have a good relationship with all club legends.

On tomorrow morning’s podcast, our very own Kiyan Sobhani and Matt Wiltse will verbalize their thoughts to Zidane’s letter, and the entire situation. Stay tuned.
