With a father like Zinedine Zidane, son Enzo was always like to be something a bit special - and it seems he is well on his way to the top after he made his debut for Real Madrid B yesterday.

Zidane Sr is currently assistant manager of the Real Madrid Castilla team, and it seems as though his 19-year-old could well match his achievements on the pitch and turn out for the Real Madrid seniors.


He took his bow for the B team in their 2-1 win over Conquense in Spain's Segunda B on Sunday having made his way up through the youth ranks. Enzo isn't the only one of Zidane's sons to be climbing the football ladder however; Luca, Theo and Eliaz are all currently in Real Madrid's Academy.

It hasn't all been smiles in the Zidane camp of late though. Zidane was banned for three months from coaching Castilla after he was found not to have the requisite qualifications to take up his spot on the sidelines. However that has been put on hold pending his appeal. Fellow reserve team coach Santiago Sanchez also received the same punishment.

Coaching role

Zidane, who joined Real Madrid from Juventus in 2001 for a then record fee of £45.8 million and helped win the Champions League in 2002, had previously assisted Carlo Ancelotti foe a season before being named reserve team boss.

Meanwhile there was some bad news from Real Madrid following the first round of games in the international break, with Luka Modric staring down the barrel of a spell on the sidelines.


The Croatian midfielder was injured while playing for his country against Italy after 27 minutes of the match which ended in a 1-1 draw, and reports in Spain claim he could be out for the next five weeks.

The match had to be stopped after Croatia fans threw fireworks onto the pitch at the San Siro.
