Perez arrived early, but Zidane had already arrived. As is his routine, Zidane arrived just after nine o'clock.
The two being at Valdebebas allowed them to meet face to face for the first time since Kiev and since the pressure surrounding the Frenchman really amplified from outside the club, says Marca.
The president's confidence in Zidane has been absolute for two decades now, first as a player and now as a coach, and he has shown that by bringing him back to the club less than a year after he left the job.
But Zidane isn't escaping blame for recent results, and doubts are starting to form. The coach himself knows it as well, even if he claims to feel good.
