Zidane Beats Pep Record

Zinedine Zidane Beats Pep Guardiola Record

By Kurt Buckerfield - Oct 03, 2017 07:51 AM @KurtLaduma

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has beaten a La Liga record belonging to former FC Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.

Pep Criticises Barca's Decision

With Los Blancos' 2-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday night, Zidane achieved his 50th La Liga victory since he took over from Rafael Benitez in 2016.

The Frenchman reached the milestone in just 65 league matches – two games less than it took former Barca manager Guardiola to reach the half century of wins, according to Marca.

The duo are often compared to one another due to the success they brought to the teams they once represented professionally as players, despite having very different managerial styles.

Like Guardiola did at Barca in the 2008/09 campaign, Zidane won the league in his debut campaign at Real, and has already won two UEFA Champions Leagues in two years.

The current Manchester City manager also won the European competition twice with Barca, although it took him four years to achieve that triumph.

Zidane has already won seven trophies since taking charge of Real.

Madrid is my no1 team abroad. Man c is 3rd after man u. But I like pep more that zizou n mou. His team play beautiful football no compromise. Used to despise him @ barca cause of what they dd to my favourite teams. Bt yeah, zizou is going to break every coaching record there is. His madrid team is amazing..

Such a stupid question editor, we all know the answer is YES and we also know that all Barca coaches become useless after leaving Barca (you can do your own research)

Zjdane has done well but he is not at Pep G level. No other coach except the dutch barca legend late Johan has won with style like Pep. Zidane just continued with Madrid counter attack that mourinho set. No style.
