Spanish football morning headlines for 17 February.

Zidane promotes son to squad

Real Madrid news on Wednesday has seen Zinedine Zidane promote his son Theo to the first-team squad at the club, as per Marca.

Luca and Enzo – who have both subsequently left Los Blancos – have featured in Madrid’s squad under Zidane and an injury crisis has prompted the club to promote 18-year-old Theo.

Theo has been at Madrid for 11 seasons and is tipped to have the highest potential of the coach’s three sons.

Unsurprisingly, Barcelona news is dominated by the club’s Champions League defeat against Paris Saint-Germain at the Camp Nou last night.
