Zinedine Zidane promises to make up for his lack of coaching experience by inspiring Real Madrid to play with the same attacking flair he displayed during his playing career.The 43-year-old Zidane, a three-time world player of the year and former Real Madrid star, coached Real Madrid's reserve team in Spain's third division for the past year and a half.Zidane's first game as coach will be on Saturday against Deportivo La Coruna in the Spanish league. Zidane previously served as assistant to Madrid coaches Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti. Zidane said he would continue to play star forwards Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale, although he said Bale was not happy with Benitez's firing.Zidane was named manager on Monday when Benitez was fired midway through his first season.That means Zidane must find a way to topple Barcelona as either European or Spanish champion.
