All you need to know about Real Madrid's new boss Zinedine Zidane!

HE’S A LEGEND!

Zinedine Zidane is one of the most respected men in the modern-game. He’s a club hero at Real Madrid having played 155 times for them and managed their reserve team for two-years!

HE’S A WINNER!

Zizou’s trophy cabinet is rammed full of medals for two Serie A titles, one La Liga championship, a Champions League, World Cup and European Championship win. Oh and just the three World Player of the Year Awards!

HE’S A PROMISING COACH!

In 2010 he became special advisor to then Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho. Three years later he became Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant at Real, then took charge of their reserve team Castilla in 2014. They play in Spain's equivalent of League 1!

HIS LAST GAME AS A PLAYER WAS A WORLD CUP FINAL!

He was sent off in the 2006 final against Italy for headbutting Marco Materazzi during extra time! France lost on penalties!

HE’S ONLY IN CHARGE UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON!

Real Madrid are testing the water with him. If he does well he will get a bumper deal to continue after the summer!

HE’S MATES WITH BECKS!

They played alongside each other in Madrid for three seasons! When Beckham heard Zidane was Real’s new manager he said "Does it get any better than this?? A man that has been the best at a game we all love taking over a club that myself and many more people love."

HE HAS TALENTED CHILDREN!

His four sons are all at Real Madrid too! Enzo (20) plays No.10 like dad, Luca (17) is a keeper, Theo (13) is a tricky midfielder while Elyaz (10) plays left mid!

HIS FIRST GAME IS AT HOME THIS SATURDAY!

The team play Deportivo who are ten points behind Real Madrid in seventh place!

AGUERO! Went goal crazy against Leicester – netted four times!

ADAM! Missed a last minute pen that would have netted Stoke valuable survival points!
