new role has been found for the French ex Real Madrid player, Zinedine Zidane, who will now act as a go-between between the players and the management of the club. His role was confirmed in a meeting on Wednesday between the club chairman, Florentino Pérez and manager José Mourinho.
Zidane takes over his new job straight away and joins the team on their trip to Milan next week.
