"Zidane is the perfect example of how a former player can grow into a coach as he's shown that he's prepared to learn and his still growing and evolving. Just because one has been an excellent player doesn't guarantee success as a coach", added Kahn, who will be at the Calderón this Wednesday to cover the Atlético-Bayern game for his network.
