Zidane, the 3-time 'World player of the year' who retired from professional football after 2006 World Cup final, is a legend at the Bernabeu after his famous goal for Real Madrid at the 2002 European Cup final against Bayer Leverkusen. He has been working as a special adviser to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez since June 2009.
Mourinho is pretty sure he can convince the former French soccer icon Zidane to join him as a part of the Portuguese’s coaching setup at the Bernabeu. He believes Zidane's ample experience could possibly be a beacon of guidance for the players. Mourinho is hoping that his desire to join hands with the playmaking hero on the training ground will come true soon.
Zidane, however, has been repeatedly saying he does not want to be a manager. He believes reckons Mourinho is exactly the type of coach Real Madrid required. He said 'with a great coach and star palyers Real Madrid can bring home the cup'.
