Zidane preparing for pre-season

Zinedine Zidane has already started his pre-season preparations as the Frenchman held a meeting at Valdebebas to organise Real Madrid’s training schedule.

The season begins with a familiar encounter as they take on Sevilla on August 9 in a repeat of 2014’s European Super Cup.

The club have planned a North American trip that will be divided into two parts with the first being in Canada where they’ll focus on fitness and training before taking Los Blancos to the United States.

Real Madrid play Paris Saint-Germain in Ohio on the July 27 before travelling to Michigan to face Chelsea three days laters.

Their final test in the United States comes against Carlo Ancelloti’s Bayern Munich on August 3 in New Jersey.

Zidane has had to cancel a game against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley as the unexpected task of playing the European Super Cup now has to be fit into the schedule.
