Zidane's new wage at Real Madrid revealed

Zidane returns to Real Madrid's training grounds as new wage is revealed

March 13, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The French boss returned to Las Rozas Training Complex for his first training session in nine months.

Zidane's return to Real Madrid has brought all sorts of attention back to Los Blancos despite their exit from the Copa del Rey, the UEFA Champions League and their slim chances of winning La Liga.

Even with all of that in mind, the French boss' arrival has everyone on their toes for any move he makes. Added to that, the coach's wage made headlines today, mainly because he will be earning quite a bit of cash, but not as much as you would expect.

According to reports by the Daily Mail and The Mirror, Zidane went from earning over $8.4M all the way to a $13.5M wage. There are a number of clauses that would increase the amount of money Zizou will earn, depending on how the team performs in the league and in the UEFA Champions League.

Even if Zidane earned himself a raise, it is not the highest amount of money earned by a coach in Europe. That honor belongs to Diego Simeone, who earns a bit over $26M yearly after signing a contract extension with Atlético. The Argentine boss if followed closely by Pep Guardiola, who earns over $20M yearly at Manchester City.

Compared to other bosses in European leagues, Zidane's wage surpases the earnings of Jurgen Klopp ($9.2M), Mauricio Pochettino ($11.2M) and Massimiliano Allegri ($9.1M), the man who he was supposed to replace at Juventus.

Speaking about the team's workout session, Zidane decided to make his team work on a reduced-sized field, while adding pressing exercises to the mix. Regarding those players who had picked up injuries before his appointment, Marcos Llorente is the one with the best chances of returning to the pitch, as he worked with the ball right next to the team.

Here'a token of what happened today at Real Madrid's training complex.
