Former French and Real Madrid midfielder, Zinedine Zidane, has told espana.net that he learned a lot from Real Madrid coach, Jose Mourinho, during the time they worked together in Madrid.
There had been insinuations that both men were not friends, and that a fall out with Mourinho led to the departure of the French World Cup Winner.
Zidane has dismissed such notions:
- I’ve never had a problem with Mourinho. On the contrary, I learned a lot from him and now I’m learning to become a good football Coach. Zidane said
- At Real I learnt what it is like to be inside a big club, but my passion is to be involved in the day to day activities on the pitch. That is why I have come to France, so I can continue to learn, he said.
The French legend recently left his post to pursue a new episode in his professional career as he looks to qualify as a Coach in his own right.
