It’s Official: Rafa Out, Zizou In

4 Jan

355372-zinedine-zidane-pc-700After many breathless rumors with AS & Marca both reporting the coaching change, it’s finally official.

Still not sure why they hired Benitez in the first place, but as always, I try to be supportive of the team and the coach. I’m looking forward to seeing what Zizou can do. If nothing else, we know that we have the hottest coach in the universe. But I’d really much prefer that he’s hot AND we win. Now that Rafa is out, can we please ease up with the drama, Madrid?

URGENT: Real Madrid Vs. AC Milan Ticket Update
