FOOTBALL NAMES: Real Madrid President FLORENTINO PEREZ believes that former French footballer ZINEDINE ZIDANE "could become first-team coach at the club." Perez said that Zidane "had all the attributes a Madrid boss would need." Perez: "He has the qualifications and he is a madridista. We have not yet thought about it because we have been very scrupulous with the steps. But he fulfils all the requirements, for sure" (ESPN, 6/5). ... La Liga Real Valladolid has reportedly offered its vacant manager position to DIEGO MARADONA. Neither the club nor the former World Cup winner "have publicly responded to the report," but Maradona "has been known to frequent Valladolid during times of festivals, so the notion may very well have some momentum" (INSIDE SPANISH FOOTBALL, 6/5). ... Romania coach VICTOR PITURCA "has been handed a suspended one-year prison sentence for aiding and abetting controversial" Romania side Steaua Bucharest Owner GEORGE BECALI in a "high-profile corruption case in the Balkan country" (REUTERS, 6/5).
