Court lifts Zinedine Zidane’s coaching ban
MADRID (AP) — A Spanish court has lifted Zinedine Zidane’s coaching ban, allowing the Real Madrid great to manage its reserve team.
The same court had already suspended the ban this month while it considered its ruling. On Friday, it ruled in favor of Madrid’s appeal of the three-month ban.
The now-voided ban had resulted from a complaint lodged by Spain’s national training center for coaches that Zidane did not have the required qualifications.
Zidane served as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant last season, when Real Madrid won the Champions League.
