Zinedine Zidane is the right man for the job of Real Madrid coach, former team mate David Beckham said on Monday after the Spanish club sacked Rafa Benitez and replaced him with the French World Cup winner.

“Does it get any better than this??,” the former England captain, who played with Zidane at Real after joining from Manchester United in 2003, declared on Instagram.

“A man that has been the best at a game we all love, taking over of a club that myself and many more people love... Someone with drive, passion and also doesn’t accept failure on any level,” added Beckham.

“Taking over from a manager that has huge experience and respect in the game, but taking on a position that he will relish... THE BEST PERSON FOR THE JOB.”
