Zinedine Zidane's Record As Real Madrid Manager Is Seriously Out Of This World

Zinedine Zidane's Record As Real Madrid Manager Is Seriously Out Of This World

Real Madrid have officially decided to appoint former player Zinedine Zidane as their new boss, 10 months after the Frenchman opted to leave the club following a third consecutive Champions League title win.

In his time as Los Blancos manager between 2016 and 2018, the 46-year-old only lost an incredible 16 out of 149 games during his time in charge, with his team scoring 393 goals in that time frame.

It really isn't a surprise that Florentino Perez wanted him back at the Bernabeu with this record.

To put his time at the La Liga giants into further perspective, Zidane won 104 out of 149 games, picking up 2.3 points per game.

And as well as his unprecedented three Champions League title wins, he walked away with a La Liga winners medal, two Club World Cups, one Spanish Supercopa and a single UEFA Super Cup - and that's only the start of it.

Zidane only lost 16 times as the Real Madrid manager, something that will encourage those behind the scenes as Los Blancos as they try and regain their title as the biggest and best team in European football following defeat to Ajax last week.

For the past three years Real Madrid have looked almost unbeatable in the Champions League as they won Europe's biggest competition for the 11th, 12th and 13th times in their history.

Zidane and co. will be looking to improve in the coming weeks, months and quite possibly, years.

Do you think the appointment of Zidane is the right one?

Let us know in the comments.
