Zidane really wants to train in Italy

Zinedine Zidane has not currently coached again after leaving Real Madrid. One day, Zizou wants to try out coaching a club in Italy.

Zidane was trusted to become the head coach of the Real Madrid senior team in 2016. He previously spent time as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant and coached the Castilla team.

Zidane’s achievements as Madrid coach were very good. The French football legend has won two LaLiga titles and three Champions Leagues.

Zidane is currently still not coaching after completing his second period at Madrid in 2021. Zidane has been linked with many top clubs as long as there is no new boat.

The 51 year old man is currently in Italy. Zidane came to attend the premiere of Marcello Lippi’s documentary. The famous Italian tactician was the figure who established Zidane as a top footballer at Juventus.

Italy is also a familiar country for Zidane. The winner of the 1998 World Cup title really wants to have a career in the world of coaching in Italy.

“Why not, anything can happen. I want to train in Italy one day,” Zidane told DAZN.

“I’m not coaching at the moment, but why not? I like Italy and I like football in Italy,” he stressed.

Massimiliano Allegri’s future at Juventus is currently still a question mark. So, it is not impossible for Zidane to return to the Bianconeri as a coach.

Indonesian National Team Starting Goalkeeper: Ernando, Nadeo or Riyandi?

There are three goalkeepers in the final squad for the Indonesian national team at the 2023 Asian Cup. Who will be the starter: Ernando Ari, Nadeo Argawinata, or Muhammad Riyandi?

Of the three names, Nadeo was the last name to enter the Indonesian national team squad. He replaced Syahrul Trisna who was injured.

The Indonesian national team itself will face Iraq in the first match of the 2023 Asian Cup. After that, it will be Vietnam’s turn to face four days later. In the final match of the group phase, the Garuda Squad challenged the Japanese Blue Samurai.

Indonesia’s schedule for the 2023 Asian Cup

Indonesia vs Iraq schedule
Time: Monday 15 January 2024, 17.30 local time, aka 21.30 WIB
Venue: Play at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, Al Rayyan

Vietnam vs Indonesia schedule
Time: Friday 19 January 2024, 17.30 local time, aka 21.30 WIB
Venue: Play at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium, Doha

Japan vs Indonesia schedule
Time: Wednesday 24 January 2024, 14:30 local time, aka 18.30 WIB
Venue: Play at Al Thumama Stadium, Doha

For these matches, one of the things that Indonesian National Team Coach Shin Tae-yong will really take into account is the selection of the main goalkeeper. In the last five matches, the Garuda squad conceded a total of 17 goals.

A number of goals were born from blunders by defenders. And of course the goalkeeper cannot be responsible alone when a goal is scored in the net. But careful selection of a goalkeeper as a starter is still important in order to provide a “feeling of security” for the team — especially in a tournament.

Three Indonesian national team goalkeepers in the 2023 Asian Cup

1. Ernando Ari

Summarized from Indsport, Ernando Ari is said to have the greatest chance of becoming the main goalkeeper for the Indonesian National Team in the 2023 Asian Cup.

One of the reasons is of course the fact that the Persebaya Surabaya goalkeeper has also started the Indonesian national team’s last two matches — and three times in the last four matches, according to Soccerway’s records.

So far Ernando has six caps with the Indonesian National Team.

2. Nadeo Argawinata

Nadeo Argawinata was called up to the final squad for the Indonesian National Team in the 2023 Asian Cup to replace Syahrul Trisna who was injured.

The 26 year old goalkeeper who plays for Borneo FC has so far won 24 caps for the Garuda Squad. The highest number among his two colleagues in the squad this time.

The last time Nadeo appeared in goal for the Indonesian national team was in the World Cup Qualification match in November 2023. At that time the Garuda Squad lost 1-5 against Iraq, the Indonesian National Team’s first opponent in the 2023 Asian Cup.

3. Muhammad Riyandi

Muhammad Riyandi is the next name. This 24 year old goalkeeper appeared with Persis Solo this season and so far has 5 caps in the Indonesian National Team.

Compared to Ernando and Nadeo, Riyandi has been absent from defending the national team for quite a long time. Indsport noted that his last appearance in goal for the Indonesian national team was on November 25 2021 in a 4-1 win against Myanmar in a trial match.
