Zidane the right man for Real Madrid, says Morientes

The club's former striker has backed his ex-team-mate to be a success at the Bernabeu and says his experience of playing at the very highest level can help him as a coach.

Zinedine Zidane is the right man to lead Real Madrid forward, according to former Spain striker Fernando Morientes.

The Frenchman took over as Madrid coach at the start of January following the sacking of Rafael Benitez, who lasted just seven months in the role.

The Frenchman had spent time as Carlo Ancelotti's assistant on the Madrid bench before taking over the Castilla side in the Segunda Division B.

Morientes, who played with Zidane between 2001 and 2005, believes the 43-year-old has what it takes to succeed as a manager.

"I think he was the best player I've seen, or that I've had the opportunity to play with in a team. And not just that, but when I played against him, when I played against him for Spain against France," Morientes told  Omnisport.
