Luis Figo comments about Real Madrid Performance

Real Madrid stumbled in the top ten early matches of the Spanish League season 2017-2018  Zinedine Zidane’s side were only able to win six games with two matches drawn and two defeated.

Real Madrid’s bad start at the start of the season also drew the attention of their legend, Luis Figo. Admittedly, Los Blancos lost a figure that can bring difference.

“There is no Real Madrid player who can improve the team’s game at this time,” said Figo as reported by from Marca.

According to Figo, the results achieved by Real Madrid so far have been in accordance with the conditions of their squad. He also compared the current squad with the era of Los Galacticos when he was still actively playing.

“The situation is very different in my era because Real Madrid prefer to gamble with the star players,” continued Figo.

Real Madrid had time to rely on the world’s star players such as Ronaldo Nazario de Lima, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham and Figo itself in the era of Los Galacticos. Now the philosophy of Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane’s coaching has changed.

Real Madrid is no longer a team that likes to accommodate the star players.

“Madrid is now more gambling on the young players from Spain,” added Figo.

Zidane is more likely to give opportunities to young talents like Marco Asensio, Dani Carvajal and Isco while still relying on several mega stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.

Although able to reap success last season, the success of Real Madrid with the new formula has not been proven in this season. Los Blancos are third in the Spanish league standings with 20 points, eight points behind their eternal rivals Barcelona at the top.
