Real Madrid announced the signing of French fitness coach Gregory Dupont, who will replace Antonio Pintus in Zinedine Zidane’s coaching staff.

Real Madrid C. F. wishes to announce Grégory Dupont has joined the club’s coaching staff as head of fitness for the football first team.

Dupont takes over from Antonio Pintus, to whom Real Madrid are extremely grateful for his exemplary work and commitment during his many seasons at the club and we wish him the best of luck in his new position with FC Internazionale Milano.

Dupont was the fitness coach for France during the past 2018 FIFA World Cup, meaning that he is part of the world champions. He’s 46 years old and had worked with Lille and Celtic before signing for the French National Team.

The fitness coach is a very important job in modern football and Antonio Pintus had done a very good job during Zidane’s Champions League threepeat. Can Dupont be as successful as Pintus was?
