MADRID (AP) - A Spanish court has temporarily suspended a ban that had stopped Real Madrid great Zinedine Zidane from coaching the club’s reserve team.

Spain’s Administrative Court of Sport on Friday provisionally suspended the three-month ban pending further investigation.

Judge Francisco Rubio had ruled Monday that Zidane and fellow Madrid reserve team coach Santiago Sanchez should be suspended because they did not have the required qualifications to coach. The ruling was in favor of a complaint lodged by Miguel Galan, president of Spain’s national training center for football coaches.

The French Football Federation on Tuesday disputed the ban, saying UEFA rules allowed him to coach while studying for his coaching badge.
