Zinedine Zidane gets tearful watching old interview with his father

The Real Madrid manager showed his lesser-spotted tender side after seeing a clip of Zidane Snr. professing love for his son

In this tear-jerker of a clip, Real Madrid manager Zidane watches some archive footage of his father Smail expressing affection for his son.

Zidane's father said in an interview originally broadcast on Telefoot: "I am not ashamed to tell him I love him; the grandchildren, too.

"When I phone them I tell them 'I love you'. I said it before, I say it now, and I’ll say it again."

Zidane is currently on a short break from his managerial duties, with virtually his entire squad taking part in international matches across the globe.

Real Madrid return to La Liga action against Levante on Saturday.
