Zidane named Real Madrid coach

Zidane named Real Madrid coach

Real finished third in La Liga during Zidane's last season at the club, finishing a sizeable 17 points behind winners Barcelona. "I will be starting work tomorrow to put this club back where it deserves to be".

'Zidane back at Real, Solskjaer nailed on for United. and breathe. all is well, ' wrote one Spurs fan upon hearing the news. Before their 3-1 success against Liverpool, there were several calls from the Madrid faithful for Zidane to be replaced. Part of the reason Zidane left in June was that he could only make minor tweaks to the squad rather than drastic changes.

"I think it's the right time".

What seemed like the ideal option for the club has become a reality, but the great respect and relationship that Perez and Zidane have is not the only reason the latter was convinced to take the job once again.

Diego Simeone was not interested in discussing Zinedine Zidane's return to Real Madrid ahead of Atletico Madrid's Champions League showdown with Juventus. This angered the Spanish Football Federation who promptly sacked Lopetegui.

Following Zidane out of the door of the Bernabeu is Portuguese forward Ronaldo.

It's reportedly their old man. He has achieved European history at Real Madrid. We should only think about the 11 games and not about next season.

The Spanish giants acted promptly to replace him with a new man.


Rules in Spanish football mean that a club can only have someone in a caretaker role for no more then two weeks.

Solari led Madrid to 22 wins, eight losses and two draws in all competitions, and helped the team win the Club World Cup in December.

Results have begun to dip for Solari after an initial resurgence, and there is talk of disharmony in the dressing room, particularly around Welsh striker Gareth Bale.

Zinedine Zidane resigned as Real Madrid manager in May 2018, following his third successive Champions League title in charge of Los Blancos.

With all hope of further trophy success in the 2018/19 season effectively gone, Real Madrid choose to act.

Zidane's name was a unanimous choice within the club but few thought he would accept returning so soon after deciding to take a break.

His first game back in charge will be on Saturday against Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu.
