Benito Floro is a Real Madrid man through and through, and was a tough competitor when he was in charge at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
The Asturian, therefore, had a lot to say about Zinedine Zidane‘s exit and also the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti as the club’s new head coach.
“I was surprised by Zidane‘s reaction because he should have respected Florentino Perez more,” Benito Floro said of the Frenchman’s infamous farewell letter.
“He’s the one who’s given him everything, both as a player and as a coach. He’ll have his reasons but we don’t know what they are.
“I don’t think it’s that difficult being the Real Madrid coach. They give you the best players, the best facilities.
“I don’t know why Zidane was complaining because the club has always supported him.”
As for the new coach, Benito Floro said the fact that Ancelotti knows the club could be an advantage.
“Carlo already knows what the club is like and Real Madrid know he’s a very good coach,” Benito Floro said.
“He’s already been there and is going to have a great squad, fans and media communications. He’s very respectful and a great person. I wish him all the best.”
