I would love Real Madrid return-Zidane


Zinedine Zidane has reiterated his desire to work for Real Madrid, but ruled out becoming a coach or a club director as he only wants an ambassadorial role at the moment.

The French superstar is tipped to make a return to the Bernabeu in some capacity if Florentino Perez enters and wins the club's presidential elections this summer.

Working in a role where he would represent or advise the club would be fine for Zidane, but he has no plans to replace Juande Ramos at the helm or take a seat on the board.

"I would love to be an ambassador," he told L'Equipe. "There is a possibility that he could return and we will have to see what happens.

"When they want me to do things, and if I can, then we can do them. I want to return to football.

"But just because someone has been a great player, that does not mean that they will then automatically be a great coach or director."

Zidane has been reportedly asked by Perez to help persuade a number of transfer targets to join the club, including Franck Ribery.
