Real Madrid hero Zidane: I want to be president
Zinedine Zidane admits he wants to be a Real Madrid director.
Zidane has returned to Real this season to be part of president Florentino Perez's team in an advisory capacity. The Frenchman is learning the ropes and admits he wants to eventually take an official role within the club.
He told France Football: "I am an ambassador for Madrid. I am an advisor to the president. My purpose in returning to Madrid was to discover how a great club works from the inside.
"I wanted to know what happens behind the scenes and, above all, wanted to know the fate of the president every day. He authorized me to go to meetings to watch, listen and learn.
"I'm in marketing meetings, in training of the junior teams and also the first team to discover aspects that I still did not know.
"My goal is to be a leader, but I have some way to go."
