Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro compared Santiago Solari’s approach to that of former coach Zinedine Zidane.
Solari took over at the Santiago Bernabeu in October last year, but is under pressure amid Madrid’s struggles, the club having lost three of their past four games.
However, Casemiro feels the Argentinian can be compared to Zidane, who resigned at the end of last season after guiding Madrid to three Champions League titles and a LaLiga crown.
“It would be unfair to single out one coach,” he said. “[Jose] Mourinho, [Carlo] Ancelotti, Zidane, Rafa Benitez… each one had their own important characteristics. With Zidane he had a lot of relationships with the players, a father-son relationship. Like a friend. Solari does the same, he is being fair to everyone.”
