Real Madrid make shocking Zidane announcement

Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez after Champions League victory has confirmed that Zinedine Zidane has a job for life at the club.

Zidane who took over from Rafael Benitez in January 2016 became the first manager to win the Champions League two years in a row with a dominant 4-1 win over Juventus.

When asked about Zidane's refusal to discuss his future, Perez made it clear Zizou will be handed a new deal.

"Zidane can stay at Real Madrid for the rest of his life. Every Real Madrid fan is so grateful to him, he lifted our level of talent when he arrived in 2001 and was the best player in the world.

"Now he is the best coach in the world. He has been our coach for 17 months but he has done everything possible." Perez told radio station Cadena Ser as quoted on the Daily Mail

Real produced a ruthless second-half display after an evenly matched first 45 minutes. They put more goals past Juventus in 90 minutes than the Italian champions had conceded in their previous 12 Champions League games.

The impressive win crowned a remarkable first full season in charge for former Real midfielder Zidane, who led the team to a first La Liga title in five years, delivering the club's first European Cup and league double since 1958.
