Just ten months after he left the Santiago Bernabeu behind him, Zinedine Zidane is now set to retake the reins at Real Madrid.
The Frenchman left the world of football in shock when he decided to leave the helm at Madrid after a hugely successful two-and-a-half years in which he won the UEFA Champions League an unprecedented three times in a row.
Zidane was in many ways able to replicate his successes as a player over the course of his time in charge of Real – driving his talented squad to their most impressive European run in history.
Since his departure, however, all has not been well in the time since with both Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari having been sacked in less than a year.
Fans of the Spanish side will be no doubt delighted to see the iconic former player return and one would have to assume that things are about to get a lot cheerier around the Santiago Bernabeu.
