Zidane: I want to manage Real

France legend Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he would one day like to manage Real Madrid, and praised the impact of the club's current star turn, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Zidane, now working as an advisor to Real president Florentino Perez, admitted in an interview with Iznews in China that he has enjoyed life back at the Bernabeu since re-joining the club seven months ago.

"It is a great pleasure to work alongside Florentino Perez, who wants to make another team make history," Zidane said. "Right now, I am learning and Florentino has given me great freedom to learn all the aspects of Madrid. My dream, some day, is to be manager of the club."

The 1998 World Cup winner hailed the impact of world record signing - a tag the Frenchman garnered himself after moving from Juventus to Real for €78 million in 2001 - Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He fascinates me as a player and it surprises me that he adapted to the Spanish League so quickly," Zidane said. "I feel that is a special player, because with his belief, he has infected the rest of the team. It is almost inconceivable all that Cristiano has achieved already, at his age."

Zidane, widely considered the best player of his generation, was also happy to heap praise on Real's bitter rivals Barcelona, and the current FIFA World Player of the Year, Lionel Messi.

"I really like Iniesta, for his collective sense of play," the Frenchman added. "But Messi is special, there is only one. When he gets the ball, everyone knows what is sure to happen: that the ball will finish in the opponent's goal."

Former playmaker Zidane played a pivotal role in France's World Cup victory in 1998, scoring two goals as Les Bleus beat Brazil 3-0 in the final. But 'Zizou' believes that 2008 European Championship winners Spain will be the team to beat at this year's finals in South Africa.

"I have always thought that they will be the champions" Zidane added. "I love how they play. It reminds me of France in Euro 2000, who came out champions. It will be difficult to stop them and it will be great if they come up against Portugal or Brazil in the second round.
