Zizou Can't Manage Real

Zinedine Zidane does not have the requisite qualifications to manage Real Madrid, according to an article in Wednesday’s AS newspaper.

The French icon has been touted as an emergency manager, should Los Blancos fail to land their primary target, PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti.

But while ‘Zizou’ has been hard at work acquiring his coaching badges, he is yet to attain a level high enough to enable him to manage a side in Spain’s top-flight.

Madrid will now have to expand their search for a new manager following the exit of Jose Mourinho, in a process former club president, Ramon Calderon, has described as increasingly “desperate.”

Andre Villas-Boas and Guus Hiddink are the latest names to be linked to the vacant Madrid hot seat.

But without a manager at the helm, Madrid are in limbo instead of cracking on with their planning for the season ahead.

Zidane is still tasked with his director of football responsibilities, and he and Real president Florentino Perez are set to meet to discuss the club’s transfer agenda.

All of Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Robert Lewandowski and Marco Verratti have been linked to Los Blancos of late.

But it is hard to seeMadrid signing anyone until they know who will manage them next season.

The longer there is uncertainty regarding who will be their manager, Real Madrid’s rivals will take heart.

It seems as if the Spanish giants are ready to spend big to double their efforts to conquer Spain and Europe, and every day that their work is delayed is a day for their rivals to push ahead of them.
