Madrid: Zinedine Zidane has insisted that he does not have any problems with Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, before adding that he has learned a lot from the Portuguese trainer.
A number of recent reports suggested that Zidane had left Madrid after falling out with Mourinho, but the former France international has made it clear there is no truth in the reports saying the duo have a troublesome relationship.
"I do not have a problem with Mourinho. On the contrary, I have learned a lot from him," Zidane was quoted as saying in an interview.
"It is my passion to stand on the pitch on a daily basis. That`s why I opted to return to France to form myself as a coach."
Zidane, 40, made over 200 official appearances for Real Madrid between 2001 and 2006.
It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
