Zinedane Zidane the manager of Real Madrid is already outperforming Zidane the footballer with his amazing record of 6 trophies with Los Blancos in 19 months.
Back in 2016, he said: “Winning everything,” when asked about what would make Real Madrid successful.
He had just taken over from Rafa Benitez who was sacked as results were poor and players in disagreement with the Spaniard.
Following his appointment Zidane has won two European Cups, the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup and the league title – Madrid’s first in five years all in less an two full seasons.
His first trophy was the 2016 Champions League won following a penalty win over city rivals Atletico Madrid.
He followed that up with a UEFA Super Cup win over Sevilla and then a FIFA Club World Cup win in December 2016.
He followed that early success with a Madrid’s first La Liga title in May of 2017 and added a UEFA Champions League to end Madrid’s 59 years wait for a league and European Cup double.
