Writing about Zidane, L’Equipe wrote:

He is a coach who has experienced only one club and quite rarely defeat. A coach who did what none of his predecessors did, win three Champions Leagues in a row (2016, 2017, 2018), who was able to return to the footsteps of his own glory and question everything to become a new Spanish champion with Real Madrid last month.”

Speaking further, they said:

Guardiola has something else, his dogma, his permanent research, the virtuosity of his collective game, dizzying constructions, his consistency (198 points in two seasons from 2017 to 2019), but he does not have everything, and chooses his central defenders as his attackers or midfielders.”
