Zinedine Zidane ripped his trousers during tonight’s Champions League clash between Manchester City and Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium - the second successive European match in which his trousers have split.

In what was arguably the most entertaining moment of this evening’s drab clash in Manchester, the television cameras caught Zizou with a rip in the upper corner of his left trousers leg.

It’s unclear how the French coach ripped another pair of trousers - but you can see the video of the aftermath by scrolling down this page.
