Cape Town - Real Madrid right-back Alvaro Arbeloa has lauded the impact Zinedine Zidane has made as a coach after the Frenchman recently came under criticism.

Zidane, a former Champions League and Primera Liga title-winner with the Galacticos during his playing days, is currently in charge of Real Madrid Castillas, the club's reserve team, who play in the Spanish second division.

Zidane was unable to avoid defeat in his first three games in charge this season, leading to suggestions he is unfit to coach, especially considering he is lacking the necessary certificates.

However, after joining in a training session with Castillas this week, Arbeloa had nothing but praise for the former World Cup winner's impact as a tactician of the beautiful game.

“It’s a pleasure to work and learn from such a great coach. Zizou (Zidane), a genius!”, Arbeloa posted on Twitter.
