Real Madrid hero Morientes: Zidane success down to man-management

Real Madrid hero Fernando Morientes has hailed the man-management of Zinedine Zidane.

Morientes is back at Real as a coach and ambassador.

"His way of understanding football, his way of being, is closely linked to the philosophy that Madrid exports to people," Morientes said to MARCA Claro.

"A simple guy, a normal guy, who uses a lot of common sense.

"He gives the team peace of mind and I think that is what Real Madrid needs from the bench.

"Someone who, before any outbursts, pauses, takes his time and is calm.

"Anything that is said to the staff is done at the right time and in the right place and, apart from being a good coach - who has already demonstrated it with the many strategies he's used in games - the best thing about Zidane is that he is a great group manager."
