Zinedine Zidane has won as many trophies as he has lost matches as Real Madrid manager. Let that sink in. The Frenchman has lost only seven matches in his 20 months in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu, and won as many titles.
The latest in his enviable collection is the Spanish Super Cup, where Real Madrid shrugged off the absence of the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo, and benched Isco and Casemiro to cruise past rivals Barcelona 2-0 in the second leg to cap a 5-1 aggregate win. A 5-1 win in an El Clasico is as good an indication as any of just how dominant Madrid have been under the Frenchman.
In an incredible run, Madrid has now won back-to-back Champions League trophies, La Liga, two Uefa Super Cup titles, the Club World Cup, the European Super Cup and now the Spanish Super Cup.
Here’s a look at the astonishing stats from the Real Madrid’s rampant run, capped by a splendid win over their archrivals at Santiago Bernabeu.

Sir Alex [Man U]: 90
Wenger [Arsenal]: 70
Ancelotti [Milan]: 69
