New Real Madrid role for Zidane

Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane has revealed he will become the club's director of football next season.

The former Los Blancos player has been working as a special advisor to president Florentino Perez to create a link between the first team and the Bernabeu management. But the 39-year-old will now work closely with manager Jose Mourinho.

Speaking about his new role, Zidane told AS.com: "I will be director of football for the first team."

"Mourinho influenced this decision, but also Florentino," Zidane said. "We will see [what the new role entails], but I will begin from Monday until the end of the season."

Former France international Zidane helped Real sign Les Bleus Under-21 defender Raphael Varane in June and said: "He has a tremendous future, and it's a good thing to arrive at Real Madrid so young. Varane liked the coach, so that is why he is here."

Santos starlet Neymar has long been linked with a move to Real and Zidane thinks the tricky forward could follow in the footsteps of Brazilian compatriot Robinho, who made the same move in 2005.

Zidane said: "He is similar to Robinho, but he scores more goals. Neymar is a player who could interest Real Madrid."
