Zidane return Home as Real Madrid manager
Zinedine Zidane will be reappointed as Real Madrid manager, according to Spanish Media.
The Frenchman, who left Real just last summer after leading the club to three straight Champions League titles, will replace Santiago Solari.
According to sources in Spain, Real’s board of directors will meet with Solari to dismiss the Argentine and rehire Zidane.
Real saw their season fall apart in the space of a week with back-to-back defeats in the Copa del Rey and La Liga, leaving them 12 points behind rivals Barcelona.
A surprise 4-1 home loss to Ajax in the Champions League followed, leading to Real fans staging a protest outside the Bernabeu in which they called for Solari to be sacked and for Jose Mourinho to replace him.
Former president Ramon Calderon told Sky Sports News last week Mourinho was the first choice to take over and was approached by the club, but Zidane look set to return.
