Figo: “I just didn’t see Zizou as a coach”

Real Madrid legend Luis Figo admits he’s surprised seeing ex-teammate Zinedine Zidane thrive as a coach.

“You never know what can happen in life, but the most normal thing in football is the transition from player to coach,” he said.

“But I did not believe so much so that Zizou would become a great coach, he has always been a shy and reserved person.

“But everyone does the job he likes and he is doing it in the best way, ” Figo added.
