PARIS - Former France great Zinedine
Zidane should be closer to the pitch at Real Madrid, coach Jose
Mourinho said on Sunday.
Zidane, the three-times world player of the year who retired
after being sent off in the 2006 World Cup final, is a special
advisor to Real president Florentino Perez.
"I would like to have him more with me and less with the
president," Mourinho, who joined Real during the close season,
told French TV channel TF1.
Zidane, however, has repeatedly said he does not want to
become a manager.
"I don't think he wants to become a coach but I would still
like to have him with me," said Portuguese Mourinho.
