Real Madrid may have ended the year badly, but Zinedine Zidane has been named French coach of 2017 for leading the club to a Liga and Champions League double.
“I want to show that I can also be a good coach in tough circumstances,” Zidane said in an article published on Tuesday (yesterday) in France Football magazine, which gives the award.
Real are going through a bad run. They are fourth in La Liga, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, and they ended 2017 with a crushing 3-0 defeat at home in the Clasico.
On Sunday, they were held to a 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo.
