Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has the full backing of the club’s board despite exiting two Cup competitions within a space of a week, it has emerged.

The Spanish giants were knocked out of the Spanish Super Cup by Athletic Bilbao on Thursday before being shockingly-eliminated by third tier side Alcoyano from the Copa delRey, much to the disgruntlement of their ever-demanding faithful on social media.

Among the Alcoyano players was a 40-year-old goalkeeper and the midfielder who scored the winner in extra time, Juan Antonio Casanova Vidal, is believed to be a part-time plumber.

Despite all that, the Florentino Perez-led administration still considers Zidane to be the right coach for Los Blancos.
