Real Madrid have appointed former player Zinedine Zidane as a presidential adviser to the first team. Oooh, advisor to the prez… get him!

The idea is for Zizou to assist and advise both president Florentino Perez and head coach Jose Mourinho. He will take part in first-team training sessions and have meetings with Mourinho ahead of Champions League games.

A statement on Real’s website read: “The reasoning for his appointment is to assist in optimising first-team working conditions.

“Zidane will be readily available to the president and coach for all matters concerning Real Madrid’s first team, with whom he will keep in frequent contact.

“The former player will participate in Champions League events and functions. He will also travel with the team on a regular basis for said competition and will participate in the pre-match gatherings, training sessions and meetings with the head coach.”

I wonder how the famously precious Mourinho will take his – will he see Zidane’s appointment as undermining his position?
