Zidane: Mourinho ideal Real Madrid appointment
Zizou remains close to Real and has worked with president Florentino Perez since his return as president.
"Mourinho is the best we could have brought to Madrid, this is what was missing. It is true that Barcelona is there, and they are playing very well.
"Still, I am convinced that Real are going to do important things and is going to win titles," he said.
