In order to take news of his players and find out how they live their confinement, Zinedine Zidane organized a videoconference at the beginning of the month. A video call relayed by the Spanish press, which did not please the coach of Real Madrid at all.
Try to lighten the mood, take news of each and discuss their family situation, without talking too much about football. At the beginning of the month, Zinedine Zidane brought together all of its players by videoconference. A first for Real Madrid since the start of the containment decided by the Spanish government in order to take stock of their morale and their way of approaching this very particular context.

A player behind the leaks
But this video call should have been kept confidential. According to the program El Chiringuito, Zidane did not at all appreciate that this group meeting was covered by the Spanish press. According to him, a player whose identity is not known is the source of these leaks. Finding out that the media had been made aware of this videoconference and the topics covered would have seriously irritated the 1998 world champion, who insisted that his group remain united.
Like the rest of the Spanish population, Real players are currently confined. They had previously experienced a quarantine period after the positive test for coronavirus of one of the basketball players of Real, the American Trey Thompkins. No other positive case has been identified within the football section of club merengue. Pending a possible recovery from La Liga, Sergio Ramos and his teammates must follow a physical program established by Zidane staff to stay in shape.
