Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has been officially unveiled after landing a surprise new role in Formula One.

The Frenchman, a three-time Champions League winner as Madrid manager, has spoken out after being unveiled as a new ambassador for Apline.

“I’m very happy to be here today and spend a great evening with you,” Zizou said.

“I have seen great things and I am ever so happy to be part of this team, to be part of the Alpine team.

“Why? It’s always a meeting that starts something and I had the opportunity of meeting Laurent and the whole Alpine team for a Grand Prix and I think we had a good exchange.

“We shared everything together and I think Alpine and Laurent had the project to give to young people, to have their opportunities for all the young talent. I was very interested in this project.”

Zidane had been linked with the France national team job, but it remains to be seen when we’ll see him back in football management.
