Pedrerol continues Zizou tirade: He must RESIGN from Real Madrid

High-profile Spanish pundit Josep Pedrerol has launched a new attack on Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Pedrerol slammed Zizou last week over Gareth Bale's departure to Tottenham, criticising the Frenchman's man-management of his squad.

And after seeing Luka Jovic benched for victory over Villarreal, with the prospect of the Serb leaving on-loan this week, Pedrerol continued his tirade.

He said on El Chiringuito: "If Zidane kicks him out, he has to resign, he is the only player he has chosen and Real Madrid was very angry to pay €60m for him.

"He said he needed him. And now after a year without playing he says he is not worth it. Zidane cannot sign anyone, there are coaches who are there to place the pieces. Nor is he someone who watches football at all hours, he watches Real Madrid and someone else.

"To buy you have to pay attention to people who watch a lot of football. Put the pieces to Zidane and he wins, he is not discussed. But ask Jovic to be signed for €60m ... and he says to go away?"

It's been suggested Zidane wants to see Jovic loaned out this season as he favours homespun Borja Mayoral as his reserve striker for this campaign.
