Zinedine Zidane banned from coaching for 3 months

The Spanish LFP have banned Zinedine Zidane from coaching for 3 months after it emerged that the former French international had yet to fully validate his coaching diploma despite being the Head Coach for Real Madrid’s reserve team ‘Castilla.’ 

Zinedine Zidane is expected to be able to validate his coaching licence this spring but the aforementioned ban would only last until the end of January, raising questions as to what role exactly Zidane will be undertaking when he is free to coach again in 2015.

Instead of continuing his coaching duties, Zidane will now be temporarily part of the panel of a Canal + football show on Sunday nights called Equipe du Dimanche for six shows, the first of which aired last Sunday. Zidane had recently been linked to many high-profile coaching jobs, but he will have to wait to continue his progress.
