Zidane pushing Blanc name at Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane is pushing Laurent Blanc's name at Real Madrid as they consider an end-of-season replacement for coach Manuel Pellegrini. Blanc, who won the World Cup with Zidane for France, is regarded among the brightest young coaches in Europe after his success with Bordeaux.

Don Balon says Zidane, who joined Real's football staff this season, has been pushing Blanc's name during talks with president Florentino Perez.
