Real Madrid coach Zidane furious over FIFA transfer ban

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is furious over FIFA's transfer ban.

On Thursday, Real and city rivals Atletico Madrid had their appeals against the one-year transfer bans for breaching rules governing the transfer and registration of players aged under 18 rejected by FIFA.

The Frenchman said: "I don't understand the punishment, my children were born here, have lived here all their lives and it is absurd that they can't play football.

"I'm annoyed that it's happened and I hope it can be fixed quickly.

"I'm very happy with the squad, they're happy here, and if we have to be two or three years with this team, no problem."
