Madrid and Atlético close the course with something in common. Both teams are forced to rebuild after seeing the season closed with projects already exhausted. Zidane He left because he detected that he had reached the maximum and had to return unexpectedly to regenerate the white team. Simeone Your original idea is exhausted and you must reformulate it urgently.
Zizou, more technical secretary than coach
Almost a year ago Madrid won the thirteenth Champions in Kiev and buried, without knowing it then, its hegemonic cycle in Europe. He won Liverpool from the injured Salah (3-1) and lost, immediately, to Christian. TO Bale, which has continued this season, too. Already Zidane, who did not have the strength to continue fearing the worst. In one season, the white club has devoured two coaches (Lopetegui and Solari), resorting, again, to Zizou before even planned.
The departures of Bale and Keylor Navas are the first signs of change, waiting for Hazard and Pogba
Now he is no longer a technician who manages a successful group, but can not be mistaken in his new role as technical secretary. He has already told Bale and Keylor Navas, the goalkeeper of the three Champions, to look for a team, as will happen, among others, to Ceballos, Marcos Llorentemaybe Kroos and who knows if up Isco.
Have Zidane what to guess in strategic positions of a new Madrid with old captain: Sergio Ramos. Courtois, which has left unsettling traces in his first year as guardian of the Bernabéu, is the first pillar, together with Militao, the young central of Oporto.
Waiting, of course, for it to become official what Hazard (he will pay 100 million to Chelsea for a footballer who is released in 2020) and is obsessed in recruiting Pogba, despite the reluctance of Florentine.
Invent another 'cholismo'
It has more partners than ever and a spectacular and modern stadium that will host the Champions League final. But Cholismo, in its original version, has shown symptoms of exhaustion. Gabi, Godín, Juanfran, Filipe Luis maybe, Lucas Hernández (he preferred to go to Bayern Munich rather than follow Simeone), and Griezmann, Who communicated to the club his departure, portray the decomposition of Atlético.
A team that will finish second in the league behind Barça Valverde, but it takes time to emit alarm signals. The Girona, who has just dropped to Second, eliminated him from the Cup and Juventus Christian He knew how to overcome the initial 2-0 to deprive him of the dream of playing the final at home.
The hard core the old Atlético ended with the departure of Godin and with Griezmann communicating his goodbye
Atlético announced on Tuesday that it has reached 128,249 members, 5% more than last season. I had never had so many fans, twice as much as when Simeone arrived in 2011. But everything is over. Until the great work of Cholo, able to play two Champions League finals with Madrid (both lost) and snatch a League at the Camp Nou to Barça Tata
Single Koke, already become the first captain, remains as the thread of a team that must reinvent itself because the first cholistas solutions have not gone well.
Diego Costa showed that second parties are never usually good and Lemar credited that the money (cost 70 million, the most expensive signing of the club) does not give happiness either. Y Griezmann was left breaking the ecosystem of the wardrobe with megacrack salary and earth clause: low of 200 million to 120 euros. That's why, on Tuesday night, he announced that he was leaving. Oblak, who renewed a few weeks ago, has also left an open door. He signed a new contract with a new clause: he went from 100 to 120. Just in case. To the Cholo, the best paid coach in the world, they demand effective remedies.
