Zidane place in pantheon of great coaches secure

first_imgLess than two and a half years after being promoted from his position as coach of Real’s second team to his first managerial role at the highest level, the Frenchman has become only the third coach in the history of the game to lift the European Cup three times.Leaving behind contemporaries Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, Zidane has equalled former Liverpool manager Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti, the man he used to serve as an assistant.“I need to congratulate the players as it is not at all easy what they are doing,” Zidane said after the game in the Ukrainian capital.“This is the business. There are no words for it. That is what this squad is all about. They have no limit to what they can do.”Zidane was reluctant to take too much of the credit after seeing his side secure their fourth Champions League title in five seasons, and the 13th in the club’s long love affair with the European Cup.The 45-year-old also won the trophy as a player for Real, his volley in the 2002 win over Bayer Leverkusen in Glasgow being considered one of the best ever to grace a final — although it was possibly surpassed by Gareth Bale’s overhead kick on Saturday.It is 20 years since the Marseille-born son of Algerian immigrants scored twice as France beat Brazil 3-0 in the 1998 World Cup final.Two years later his midfield artistry inspired France to victory at the European Championship, and on the eve of Saturday’s game Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp called him “one of the best five players of all time.”– ‘No secret’ –Zidane celebrates with with wife Veronique and son Theo after winning Saturday’s final © AFP / FRANCK FIFEYet as a coach, he has now won nine trophies since replacing Rafael Benitez in the Santiago Bernabeu dugout in January 2016.It is a remarkable record, all the more so for a man who has not yet convinced everyone that he is a tactical genius.“What I am doing is just a continuation — I have just started as a coach, what I am experiencing with my players is impressive,” he said.“There is no secret. It is just a lot of work. We have players who are very good, but behind that there is lots of hard work. They have the desire, the hunger to win.”Having such a talented squad certainly helps. Zidane has also had a fair amount of luck on his side, with Liverpool’s night being marred by the first-half injury to Mohamed Salah that forced off their best player.Two goalkeeping errors by Loris Karius helped too, just as a howler by Bayern Munich’s Sven Ulreich had been vital in the semi-finals.Nevertheless, guiding Real to the longest period of sustained success in Europe’s elite club competition since the 1970s means, statistically at least, his place in the pantheon of great coaches is secure.The question is, where does he go from here?Zidane recently insisted that winning La Liga is harder than anything else, but his Real side finished well behind Barcelona in third place in the season just finished.As long as he has the motivation to carry on in his current role — possibly outlasting the ageing Cristiano Ronaldo and building a new team — he will try to wrestle back the domestic title from Barcelona.“We are not going to settle now for anything. You know that at the start of the season we always want to win everything.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Zinedine Zidane with the Champions League trophy after Real Madrid’s win against Liverpool in Saturday’s final in Kiev © AFP / GENYA SAVILOVKIEV, Ukraine, May 27 – He was one of the all-time greats as a player, and Zinedine Zidane now merits consideration as one of the game’s great managers after making history with Real Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final.His team’s 3-1 win over Liverpool on a dramatic evening in Kiev allowed Zidane to become the first coach ever to win the Champions League in three consecutive seasons, with Real becoming the first team to achieve that feat in more than 40 years.last_img read more


first_imgAdrian Sweeney was absolutely superb for Dungloe in their victory over Malin.Former Donegal GAA star Adrian Sweeney rolled back the years this evening by scoring a superb 1-9 as he inspired Dungloe to their first league win of the season. Former All-Star Sweeney made his first league appearance of the season for Dungloe and produced an incredible display.Even at 38, he is indispensable for Tony Boyle’s side and is ably assisted by his evergreen younger brother Raymond who continues to perform excellently at midfield. Malin opened the scoring when Dan McDaid slotted over from 20 yards.Adrian Sweeney got his opening score after his goalbound effort was well saved by Mullarkey in the Malin net to push the ball over the bar.McDaid scored again from almost the exact same position out on the left, this time from a free after Christopher McLaughlin had been fouled.Sweeney replied with a free after he was judged to have been fouled to level shortly after. Corey Gallagher scored a free from the other side when Adrian Hanlon had been fouled.Gallagher then scored a debatable point shortly after when umpires seemed to disagree but the point was awarded.Conor Greene scored a great point shortly after when he beat his man and slotted over from 20 yards.Dan Mc Daid tapped over a 13 yard free in front of the goals after Seamus Doherty had been fouled as Malin kept in touch.Sweeney, who really reeled back the years all evening, scored again after a good break through the middle from Corey Gallagher, this time with his right foot. He then added two more frees to stretch the lead out to five.Malin then hit two excellent scores from range with Paul McLaughlin hitting an excellent effort from outside the 45’ and Stephen McLaughlin scoring from 35 yards after good interplay between himself and John Gerard McLaughlin. Half time score read Malin 0-05 Dungloe 0-08.Malin scored the first two scores of the second half through two Dan Mc Daid frees, the first after Gary Farren was brought down and the second after Dungloe were caught overcarrying. However that’s as good as it got for Malin with the home side only getting one more score in the remaining 25 minutes.Dungloe scored from Sweeney after Greene had won a long ball in and fed the corner forward, and again through Sweeney from out on the right from about 25 yards.A Corey Gallagher free extended the lead after Darren Curran had been fouled.The visitors hit three more scores from Greene in the right corner, wingback Owen Scally from the left and that man Sweeney again from a free after he himself had been fouled.Malin had a good goal chance shortly after with Stephen Doherty, who added some life when he came on, unfortunate to see his effort saved by Sharkey in the Dungloe net, there also seemed to be a hint of a foul as Malin appealed in vain for a penalty.The only goal of the game with ten minutes left and effectively sealed the game when Sweeney who collected a long ball in and casually stroked the ball in low to the keepers right to seal the points for the men from the west.Matthew Byrne scored in reply for Malin after good work from the Doherty brothers, with Stephen, Christopher and Seamus all involved as Malin recycled the ball well to work out to Byrne.Greene, Sweeney and even cornerback Doalty Boyle with the last score completed the game for Dungloe as an understrength Malin tasted their third defeat of the season.Malin team and scorers: Daniel Mullarkey, Michael McLaughlin, Damien Harkin, Gary Farren, Gary Collins, Paul McLaughlin (0-01), Charles Byrne, Declan Walsh, John Gerard McLaughlin, Kieron McLaughlin, Conor Farren, Stephen McLaughlin (0-01),Christopher McLaughlin, Dan McDaid (0-05), Seamus Doherty.
