Zidane promotes son to Madrid reserves

ENZO-ZIDANEMADRID, November 16- Real Madrid reserve team coach Zinedine Zidane has drafted his 19-year-old son Enzo into the side for a league match on Sunday, the club have announced.

An attacking midfielder already called up by the French under-19s, Zidane junior has until now been playing with Real Madrid’s third team. 

But on Sunday fans will be licking their lips to see if the old man gives his eldest son a run out for the second team, known as Castilla, against UB Conquense of Cuenca in Spain’s third tier.

Zidane has four sons and Enzo, the eldest of them, has been on the books with the Madrid giants since 2004, while Luca (16), Theo (12) and Elyaz (8) are also on the books at Real.

Zidane senior, now 42, joined Real Madrid as a player in 2001 for a then record fee of around 75 million euros 9$93m). 

He had an immediate impact, scoring a wonder goal that delivered the 2002 Champions League in a 2-1 final win over Bayer Leverkusen.

He was appointed coach of Castilla in the summer but was last month banned for three months for not having the necessary qualifications to coach in Spain, only to be allowed to continue while he appeals the decision.
