|Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez|
At the conclusion of this season Zidane will think about his future. While his true vocation is to coach and gain experience from the base (he has not hidden his desire to start in a youth team), the new electoral period in the club makes him to stay in Florentino Perez's plans, in some ways. Maybe also for the benches.
Zidane is one of the trusted men of the current president of Real Madrid. If Florentino is re-elected, he would start his fourth stage of mandate. The club chart will change and on it, Zidane is going to have a new role. Last season he served as Director of Football for the first team, to be close to Mourinho and players. Among his duties, being the nexus between the club and the coach together with the squad. At that time he spent much time with the younger and, above all, with Karim Benzema.
He decided to travel with the team in the away games in the Champions League, but there was a time when he requested to take time to start studying that course of General Manager and go on with the course for getting the football coach license. He left to travel and be close to Mourinho to focus on studies, but he kept in touch with Florentino Perez. Zidane advises and listens to him when the president asks for his opinion. He has also been working with the youth to not lose touch with youth football and has attended matches of veterans.
At Real Madrid, a new phase will start this summer and at the end of the electoral process, the continuity of Florentino Perez would mean the back of Zinedine Zidane, a person who since leaving football has preferred to remain in the background , but has not lost the relation with the man who signed him in the summer of 2001. Since then both maintain the illusion to build a sports project, to build a better Real Madrid, the best team of the world. Zidane will have more training in subjects related to sports economics and marketing. Tomorrow, we will face a new Zidane.
