Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane takes charge of first training session

Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane takes charge of first training session

Spain

Zinedine Zidane took his first training session in charge of Real Madrid today and was given an immediate insight into what life is like as coach of the world’s biggest club.

Around 6,000 Real Madrid fans turned out to watch the Frenchman in action with his squad for the first time.

Cristiano Ronaldo and his fellow galacticos were put into their paces as they watched the new coach begin a new era.

Zidane, a legend at Madrid from his playing days, was named the new manager on Monday when Rafael Benitez was fired midway through his first season.

His first game will be on Saturday at home against Deportivo La Coruna in the Spanish la liga.

Madrid trails leader Atletico Madrid by four points.
