He also equals the record of Paisley and Ancelotti for number of titles won as coach.
After the final in Kiev, Zinedine Zidane is now a coaching legend in the history of the European Cup. With the victory against Liverpool, the Frenchman became the first coach to win the continental competition three times in a row. Real Madrid’s Champions League record under Zidane is spectacular, having won the nine knockout matches played and claiming the title in the three finals disputed.
Zidane has also equalled the coach's record for European Cups. The Real Madrid technician has already matched Paisley (1977, 1978 and 1981) and Ancelotti (2003, 2007 and 2014), who also won three as coach, but not consecutively. The English coach won them all at Liverpool, while the Italian won the first two at Milan and the last at Real Madrid.

As for the history of the club, in 2016 Zidane became the seventh coach to win the European Cup. With this new victory, he is already the most successful ahead of Villalonga (two), Carniglia (two), Miguel Muñoz (two), Del Bosque (two), Heynckes and Ancelotti.
