Zidane



"Zizou" as Zinedine Zidane is popularly called is the current manager of Real Madrid, he faces a fine from the Spanish FA after criticising Cristiano Ronaldo's five-match ban. Ronaldo was shown a second yellow card for simulation during Real's 3-1 Spanish Super Cup first-leg win over Barcelona on Sunday night and reacted by pushing referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea. Last night Madrid won 2-0 in the return leg at the Bernabeu without Ronaldo. 

Moments after the first-leg, Zidane claimed he has a spectacular squad. As a player, he won the La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, two Serie A league championships with Juventus and an Intercontinental Cup and a UEFA Super Cup each with both aforementioned teams. 

Remember his 2002 UEFA Champions League Final left-foot volley winner considered one of the greatest goals in the competition's history. On the international stage with France, Zidane won the 1998 FIFA World Cup. He was named the FIFA World Player of the Year three times, in 1998, 2000 and 2003, and won the 1998 Ballon d'Or.

As a coach, he won the UEFA Champions League in his first season as manager. He became the first coach to win it back to back and Real Madrid the first club in history to achieve that feat, he won a La Liga title, the UEFA Super Cup twice and a FIFA Club World Cup.

The big question is can he replicate the same feat elsewhere. Is Zidane a superb coach or was just fortunate to have inherited a team that is at its peak.
