List of Talented Players Who Become Victims of Zinedine Zidane

These eight young players fell victim during Zidane's tenure at Real Madrid.

JAKARTA - MartinOdegaard has become the latest victim in a list of promising young players, but is looking for a way out of Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane. The Norwegian player wants to leave Real Madrid.

Odegaard has had very little playing time since returning from loan at Real Sociedad last summer.

Here are eight young players who were victims during Zidanedi Real Madrid's tenure as reported by Marca , Friday (22/1).

- Alvaro Morata

During his time at Real Madrid, Alvaro Morata experienced one of the best seasons of his career under Zidane with a double win in the 2016/2017 season.

However, when it became clear that his role as replacement for Karim Benzema would not change the following season, Real Madrid sold him to Chelsea for 80 million euros.

- Mateo Kovacic

In Zidane's first term, he saw Mateo Kovacic as a key component of his midfield, to step in when either Luka Modric or Toni Kroos were not available.

However, injury hampered his form the following season and he followed Zidane out of the club at the end of the season, on loan to Chelsea.

When Zidane returns, the coach has the option of bringing the Croatian back to the club at the start of the 2019/2020 season, but he has sanctioned a permanent transfer to the West London club.

- Theo Hernandez

AC Milan's star left-back was never appreciated during his spell at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Arriving in the summer of 2017, he rarely played under Zidane in his first season, before being loaned out to Real Sociedad when Julen Lopetegui arrived.

When Zidane came back, Hernandez didn't. He instead signed with AC Milan for 21 million euros and has not looked back since.
