Returning hero Zidane reportedly set to replace Solari at Madrid

Zidane's close relationship with club president Florentino Perez is clear for all to see and he has returned to dig Real out of a huge rut.

There is controversy as Real appoint Spanish national team manager Julen Lopetegui to replace Zidane, just three days before the Fifa World Cup is scheduled to start in Russian Federation.

Madrid return to action on Saturday, when they host Celta Vigo in La Liga.

Solari failed to pick up the pieces after a disastrous start to the season from new manager Julen Lopetegui who lasted just three months.

The main condition on which Zidane's return hinged upon was power. He takes over a team with nearly nothing to play for in La Liga, 12 points adrift of leaders Barcelona and 10 ahead of Alaves in fifth. I haven't given interviews in these nine months. The former Argentina and Madrid player had been the "B" team's coach before taking over the main squad in October.

Shortly after Zidane left, Cristiano Ronaldo announced he was leaving to join Juventus, and Madrid has endured an up-and-down season which led to the humiliating losses to Barcelona and Ajax at the Bernabeu. "He's calm, a great coach, and nobody can compare to him". I came back because the president called me.

May's third straight Champions League triumph came at the end of less than three full seasons in charge and after he was promoted from his position as coach of Real's youth team.

"The board of directors also agreed on the appointment of Zinedine Zidane as head coach of Real Madrid with immediate effect for the remainder of the season and the next three campaigns, until 30 June 2022".

"Already as a player he was extraordinary".

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.

"Real Madrid's board met today and made a decision to end the contract linking Santiago Solari to the club as first team coach and, at the same time, have offered to keep him at the club", Madrid said in a statement. Real Madrid is expected to sell midfielder Luka Modric and forward Gareth Bale this summer in order to facilitate Zidane's revolution.
