Real Madrid coach Zidane not pining for playing return

Zinedine Zidane says he's happy in his role as Real Madrid assistant coach.

Zidane insists he doesn't harbour any notions of a playing comeback.

"I train with the players occasionally and only when there are missing players. Otherwise, I do not train. I stay in my place.

"There are young players coming to train with us. I am an assistant coach and I want to remain an assistant coach. I was already a player.

"The relationship that I have with the players is very close, and I try to help as I can every day."
