As an ex-coach reveals manager secrets, Zidane reveals how he would energise Man United’s squad and get the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo.

If Zinedine Zidane were to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager, he would add pleasant training sessions and get the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to David Bettoni, Zidane’s long-time Real Madrid assistant, Zidane always wanted to motivate his players by instilling a desire to return to training.

According to reports, the French head coach is one of the candidates to succeed Solskjaer, who has been chastised for United’s six defeats in their last 12 games.

“We were talking about principles of the game, how to get the ball played, different team organization,” Bettoni told RMC Sport’s After Foot.

“But, above all, Zidane’s phrase that came to mind was: ‘I want the notion of pleasure to be in all exercises.’

“He also stated that he wanted the players to be eager to return to training when they returned home.”

It was the first thing that distinguished me from Zizou.

“All I can say is that what I’ve experienced with him is reality.”

Zidane is an unusual coach in that he does not speak to the media frequently.

“And this is because he is like that and does not play the role of a discreet character.”

He’s always been this way.

“After that, we got the impression that he was a great player who had been trained by great coaches and who had told himself that he wanted to be a coach and had prepared extensively for it.”

“He had football knowledge that influenced his decisions; the tactic was reserved for his staff and players.”

If Zidane succeeds Solskjaer as United manager, he will reunite with Ronaldo, who he coached for two years before leaving the Spanish capital in 2018.

Bettoni claimed that the former France captain knows how to get the most out of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner because he learned how to train him properly.

“You had to be clear and precise with Cristiano Ronaldo,” he said.

He needed to know why he was performing a particular exercise.

“Let me tell you a story.”

When we played Bayern [Munich], I told him to concentrate on strategic targets in the practice cages rather than [Manuel] Neuer.

“I’m not sure why I’m saying that to him.”
