Report: Zinedine Zidane under investigation regarding Real Madrid coaching role

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly under investigation following concerns that the retired footballer is coaching Real Madrid's reserves without the right qualifications.

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly under investigation by the Spanish Federation after questions were raised about his coaching role with the Real Madrid reserves.

The former France international is currently the head coach of Real Madrid Castilla after spending a stint as Carlo Ancelotti's right-hand man at the Bernabeu.

According to Marca, a complaint was made about Zidane by Spain's national association of coaches CENAFE, raising the possibility that the 42-year-old does not have the right qualifications to hold the role.

The Spanish newspaper has claimed that video footage of Zidane working as head coach has been sent to the Federation's competitions committee.

It is believed that if Zidane is found guilty of breaking the rules, he could receive a match suspension ranging from four to 20 games or a ban of between one and six months.
