Zidane turns to coaching

Zinedine Zidane will shortly begin training as a soccer coach while at the same time helping out at Real Madrid's youth academy, the La Liga club said on Monday.

The 40-year-old former France international, who played for Real between 2001 and his retirement in 2006 and was World Player of the Year three times, has been working as a director of football with the Spanish champions since last year.

“This year he will complete his team management qualification,” Real said in a statement on their website (www.realmadrid.com).
