Zinedine Zidane returns to Real Madrid, just 284 days after he resigned as Madrid,s manager.
Real re-appointed Zidane with the priority to revitalise a now struggling squad he left barely 8 moths ago as champions. Despite winnig their game against Real Valladolid, the club’s authorities decided to part ways with Santiago Solari from his post and bring back Zidane to oversee the remaining three months of the season
left and 11 LaLiga games and beyound.
Santiago Solari who replaced Julen Lopetegui was shown the back door after an abismal run of form. A 4-1 loss at home to Ajax brought to an end their three years raign as Europian champions and a back to back El Classico loss which summed up their missery.
The hopes of winning trophies this year is all gone for madrid, unless Zidane as a miracle worker performs a miracle. Although there isn’t much astake even if he wins nothing this season, but Zinedine Zidane return to Real Madrid means next season will be up a prolific one.
AS a player Zidane had vision on the game, now as a coach his vision never left himstill remains unblinded. He saw it coming last year before he left the club after winning his third Champions league in a row. Madrid were so dependent on ageing players and the most prolific of them all, Cristiano Ronaldo, was on the exit.
Real Madrid have arguably struggled to cope with the post Cristiano Ronaldo era. Their all-time goal scorrer left for Juventus in the summer, to get an improved contract which he failed to get at Madrid. The hunt for a suitable replacement for Ronaldo has seen them linked with the likes of Chelea’s Hazard and Paris Saint-Germain stars Mbappe and Neymar.
Zidane won nine trophies during his first spell as madrid coach, which are as follows: Three Champions League, Two European Super Cups, Two Club World Cup, One LaLiga Santander, One Supercopa De Espana. He is the second most successfull manager at the club behind Miguel Munos, with 14 trophies to his name.
However, with Zinedine Zidane return to Real Madrid, Fan are hoping to see the glory days restored at the club. Zidane is a legend at the club and will always remain a legend.
