French newspaper L’Equipe has crowned Zinedine Zidane as the world’s best manager, beating Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola to the title.
The 48-year-old, won a La Liga title, three Champions Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups, two Club World Cups, and a Spanish Super Cup in his first spell at Real Madrid, before he surprisingly left the club in 2018.
However, he was re-appointed within just ten months, and went on to win another La Liga title and another Super Cup this season to continue his remarkable record with Madrid.
L’Equipe said there was no room for Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho in the top three which is joined by Klopp, Guardiola, and Zidane for their remarkable achievements.
Jose Mourinho is also described by L’Equipe as having a “fading image and magic.”
They wrote on Zidane: “He’s a coach who’s only experienced one club, and quite hardly ever defeat.”
“A coach who did what none of his predecessors did, won three Champions Leagues in a row (2016, 2017, 2018), who was able to return to the footsteps of his own glory and question everything with Real Madrid last month to become a new Spanish champion.”
