Zidane returns as Real Madrid manager

Giggs insists training at United is ‘the best way’ for Wales to prepare

Giggs insists training at United is ‘the best way’ for Wales to prepare

The news of Zidane's reappointment was broken by Spanish football expert Guillem Balagué this afternoon, with the World Cup victor returning to the Real Madrid training ground on Tuesday.

Only 10 months after leaving the Santiago Bernabéu, Zinedine Zidane has been reappointed as the Real Madrid manager on a three-year contract. However, they've had problems without him too and now he has returned to fix them.

Julen Lopetegui was sacked after three months and Santiago Solari's team self-combusted in six days, as defeats to Barcelona, twice, and Ajax rendered their season dead before the middle of March.

The main condition on which Zidane's return hinged upon was power.

If Madrid want to win again, they need to make those changes and the right man to administer them. The former Argentina and Madrid player had been the "B" team's coach before taking over the main squad in October. In addition to the three Champions League titles, he also led Madrid to the 2017 Spanish league title, the club's first since 2012.

"He's one of the greatest people we've ever had at this club", Solari said, at his first press conference in November.

However, he walked away last May reportedly due to differences with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez over the future direction of the squad.

Asked about Juve icon Zidane on the eve of Atletico's clash against the Italian champions, who trail 2-0 in the last-16 tie, coach Simeone dismissed the question.

Real had won the Champions League for three straight seasons under Zidane but lost 4-1 at home to Ajax to go out 5-3 on aggregate, their earliest exit since 2006. "He's had a second life as a coach and he is now an extraordinary coach". Zidane, who won the World Cup with France as a player, is expected to take charge of training on Tuesday.

The 42-year-old Solari was in charge of Real for 22 games in all competitions, losing eight and drawing two, and helped the Spanish giants claim the FIFA Club World Cup in December.

It is why Madrid so wanted him back. The former midfielder stated his reason behind the move was "because the president called me, and I love the president and the club very much".
