World No 1, and Real Madrid fan, Rafael Nadal has hailed Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane for being a perfect example of success.
Nadal put aside his misgivings about why the Frenchman suddenly quit praising his impressive record of winning the UEFA Champions League three years consecutively.
Zidane stunned the football world on Thursday by quitting as Real coach just five days after leading them to the Champions League title.
Nadal who is in the race to win his 11th French Open title said, “It’s tough to accept that he’s leaving
“He is a great coach who had a lot of success with the team. He is a good, humble person who represents the right values.
“He is the perfect example of how someone who has been successful does the everyday things normally without saying negative things about the club, players, and referees.
“Zinedine is always smiling even in the difficult moments, so thanks to him for always setting the right examples.
