Real Madrid have been successful under Zinedine Zidane because 'he puts himself at the same level' as his players, says Claude Makelele.
Zidane has led Real to successive Champions League titles, making them the first side to do so in the competition's current format.
He has now extended his contract until 2020, and former team mate Makelele says his success comes down to understanding his players, despite his own stellar playing career.
