Zidane The Next Real Coach?

Zinedine Zidane is rumoured to replace Carlo Ancelotti as Real Madrid coach in 2016.

According to Canal+ and German media, Zidane will succeed Ancelotti at Bernabeu in 2016, when the Italian’s contract expires.

The 1998 World Cup winner, who also excelled as a player at the Los Blancos, is currently Ancelotti’s assistant and technical advisor to the Madrid board.

He has confirmed he wants to coach in the near future, but could also replace Didier Deschamps as France coach in the future.

Zidane, who won the La Liga title and the Champions League with Real Madrid, two Seria A titles with Juventus and the UEFA Super Cup with both aforementioned sides, insists his future sides will ‘fight for titles’.

“I’ll be an ambitious Coach, as far as the system, and we’ll fight for titles,” the 41-year-old said.

“I was a bold player and I’ll be the same as a coach.”

On personal level, Zidane won the FIFA World Player of the Year three times and the Ballon d’Or once, and many of the current Real players heap praises on Zidane’s involvement in the coaching set up.
