Los Blancos were stunned 1-1 by Real Valladolid this past weekend in La Liga, and the Brazilian icon is sure Zinedine Zidane will do great things there.

The second Zinedine Zidane era at Real Madrid has not been the best.

But according to Brazil legend Rivaldo, Los Blancos will play better in the future without any doubts.

“Even dropping points at home last weekend in La Liga, I don’t see why the club and fans might start to panic, after all, we are just starting the league and Barcelona also lost their first game,” Rivaldo was quoted by Goal.

“Those kinds of thoughts should only come after 10 matches or so, and if things are not improving.”

“Zinedine Zidane is re-setting his tone on the team and soon things should get better. The club will battle for La Liga and Champions League, but I don’t doubt that they might make a move in the transfer market before the transfer deadline,” he added.

“Apparently, PSG talked about Vinicius Junior moving from Madrid to France as part of a potential Neymar transfer to Real Madrid deal, but I wouldn’t accept it if I was Vinicius.”

“Of course, it would depend on the player’s will of playing more often, but he played well last season and should not rush a move, after all, he is on the best possible stage to shine at Real Madrid,” Rivaldo concluded.
