Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has played down talks that Jose Mourinho is a better coach than Zidane who had enjoyed great success at the club.
Mourinho is set to face Real Madrid with Manchester United in the European Super Cup and the manager who led the Spanish club for three seasons didn’t receive a lot of rave reviews from his former player at the club.
When he was asked to pair the two managers during his press conference
“When a new coach comes on board, a team usually changes because they come with their different ideologies and style of play. So it’s hard to compare.”
“It doesn’t mean that one coach is better than the other. It is just a different ideology in place.”
“Zidane understands the dressing room because he once played here and I think that gives him more advantage.”
“They are both great managers and we are just lucky to have Zidane at this moment.”
Mourinho Didn’t Make Me Great
Ramos also played down talks that Mourinho made an impact on his career by converting him to central defender from a tight back player.
” I cannot say he changed me in a great way because he was just like another coach that I have played with all my career and I have always learnt new things right from my days at Sevilla.”
“I’m grateful to him but I don’t think he changed me greatly”.
