Florentino Perez is flattered by Zinedine Zidane after Real Madrid’s recent success.

Despite missing some of their key players in Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, and Eden Hazard, Real Madrid managed to successfully evade Atletico Madrid and lift their eleventh Spanish Super Cup.

Zinedine Zidane, in his three-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu, has won an incredible ten trophies. Moreover, the Frenchman has also achieved an incredible feat of winning each one of the finals with Los Blancos.

And Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is impressed by the club manager. Speaking after the Madrid derby in Jeddah, Perez insisted that he feels blessed to have Zidane.

“He has plenty of trophies and we’re very happy for him,” Florentino Perez said as per Marca.

“I hope that he wins more trophies.

“Zidane has a loving relationship with Real Madrid. He decided to rest for a year and now he’s returned with renewed energy.

“Zidane is a blessing from heaven. Zidane has been able to put together a team and we won the trophy. I think that we’re on the path to finding ourselves again after a little dip. New people have come in who have given the team intensity and we’re on a good path.”
