Once again,Zinedine Zidane returns to Real Madrid.Former Real midfielder Zidane, 46, who left in May after leading the club to a third straight Champions League trophy, has agreed to take over until 2022.
“The best manager in the world has rejoined the club,our destinies once again united,” Real president Florentino Perez said.
Zidane stepped down following the Champions League final victory over Liverpool, and Julen Lopetegui was hired as his successor just before the World Cup where he had been due to lead Spain, who promptly sacked him.
The Frenchman replaces Santiago Solari, who was sacked after less than five months in charge.
“Real Madrid thanks Santiago Solari for his work done and the commitment and loyalty he has shown to what is his home,” the club said.
