Real Madrid: The best replacement for Zinedine Zidane
With Zidane handing in his resignation, RealSport look at the candidates to replace him.
In one of the surprises of the summer, Zinedine Zidane has resigned as manager of Real Madrid less than a week after becoming the first manager in history to win the Champions League three times in a row.
His third -and Real Madrid’s 13th- European title was the ninth trophy the Frenchman had won in his three-year stint at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Zidane won everything as a player with Real Madrid, retired and joined the backroom staff before returning to the fore as a manager and winning everything available… again. He leaves on a high with his legendary legacy completely intact.
With Los Blancos now managerless, they’ll be searching for the ideal candidate to help usher in the new era of success, especially at a time when both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are reportedly leaving the club.
RealSport examine their options.
