Considered one of the all-time greats as a player, Zinedine Zidane was lauded with similar respect as a manager Sunday after making more Champions League history with Real Madrid.The Spanish giants' 3-1 win over Liverpool on a dramatic evening in Kiev meant Zidane became the first coach ever to win the Champions League in three consecutive seasons.Incredibly, Zidane has broken new ground in less than three full seasons in charge after being promoted from his position as coach of Real's youth team to his first managerial role at the highest level in January 2016 .Zidane is expected to one day manage France himself, but will be in no rush to move on after drawing level with Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti as the only men to oversee three European Cup triumphs.
