Zinedine Zidane Leaves Real Madrid Training Camp
Zinedine Zidane has left Real Madrid’s pre-season training camp for personal reasons, the club have announced.
The club confirmed in a short statement that head coach Zidane will be absent for an unspecified period of the trip.
“Our manager Zinedine Zidane will be absent from pre-season training camp because of personal reasons,” the statement released on Friday said.
“Until his return, the sessions will be led by the second coach, David Bettoni.”
Real are training in Quebec ahead of their first pre-season fixture against Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup in Houston on July 21.
Madrid will then take on Arsenal on July 23 outside of Washington, D.C. before completing their ICC run against cross-town rivals Atletico on July 26 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
