Zidane reaches landmark game number as Real Madrid coach

Zinedine Zidane completed his 250th game in the Real Madrid dugout in the win against Éibar.

At the end of the match, Real president Florentino Pérez presented the coach with a commemorative shirt.

The team is currently riding an 11-match unbeaten run (W9, D2) and has won each of the last four games.

Zidane's time in charge has been full of success. He has a trio of Champions League triumphs, secured in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Zidane has also guided the team to a further eight pieces of silverware: two Club World Cups, UEFA Super Cups, LaLiga titles and Spanish Super Cups apiece.

The side's two goals against Eibar, mean that Real Madrid have reached the 400-goal mark in the league competition with Zidane at the helm. Only with Miguel Muñoz as coach, have Real Madrid scored more goals in the league: 809 in 424 matches.
