CAS allow Zinedine Zidane to continue as coach of Real Madrid Castilla

Zinedine Zidane served as Carlo Ancelotti's assistant during Real Madrid's Champions League-winning season.
Zinedine Zidane was one of the world's best players in his prime.

Zinedine Zidane has been cleared to continue in his role as assistant coach of Real Madrid's reserve team after the club successfully appealed to the Spanish Administrative Court for Sport.

Zidane was last month banned from coaching for three months -- along with the man he assists, Santiago Sanchez -- after he was found to have taken the role without the necessary coaching qualifications.

Zinedine Zidane's son Enzo makes Real Madrid Castilla bow vs. Conquense

Enzo Zidane has opted to play for France's under-age sides ahead of Spain's.

Zinedine Zidane's eldest son made his debut for Real Madrid Castilla on Sunday.

Enzo Zidane, 19, came off the bench in the final minutes of the Segunda B clash against Conquense as Los Blancos recorded a 2-1 win.

Zinedine Zidane banned 3 months as coach of Real Madrid Castilla

The Spanish football federation says Zinedine Zidane lacks the credentials to coach Real Madrid Castilla.

Real Madrid say they are in "absolute disagreement" with the suspension handed out to Zinedine Zidane for supposedly coaching their B team without the necessary qualifications.

According to reports in Spain, Zidane on Monday was handed a three-month ban by the Spanish football federation (RFEF) for coaching Real Madrid Castilla -- who play in the third-tier Segunda Division B division -- without having the level three coaching licence required in Spain.

Carlo Ancelotti backs Zinedine Zidane over Castilla coaching badge issue

ESPN FC's Fernando Palomo analyses Iker Casillas' role and future with Spain following the scrutiny the goalkeeper has come under due to his recent form.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says the coaching badge issue which could see Zinedine Zidane banned from taking charge of Real Madrid Castilla for three months is unfair.

Zidane is managing Madrid's B team this season, although he is officially listed as an assistant as he has yet to complete the UEFA Pro Licence required by the Spanish authorities.

Rayo Vallecano coach Paco Jemez has called the situation "shameful," while former Barcelona boss Johan Cruyff has played down the issue, saying that...
