Real Madrid ace dupes Zidane with amazing no-look nutmeg

Published 3 Comments

It takes a brave man to show up Zinedine Zidane but that's exactly what Xabi Alonso has done during a training session with Real Madrid.

The experienced midfielder is working his way back to full fitness after a spell out through injury, but appears to have lost none of his sharpness if this video is anything to go by.

Taking part in some Barcelona-esque Rondo training drills with Zidane in the middle, the ball comes round to Alonso who pulls off an amazing no-look nutmeg on the French great.

Zidane, now assistant coach to Carlo Ancelotti at the Bernabeu, doesn't seem to mind too much - perhaps because it is a trick even the great man himself would be proud of. 

Check out the video above!
