Zinedine Zidane has famously returned to Real Madrid as coach on Monday, 9 months after leaving the post. The club shared the Frenchman’s first day back. Check it out!
It is said that Zidane replaced his replacement’s replacement but the club has called on the enigmatic legend to restore the Spanish giants to its former glory.
Zidane had a hugely successful spell at the helm of Real, guiding the club to 3 successive Champions League triumphs, in what was his first stint as a manager.
Real Madrid took to their Twitter account to show Zidane’s first day back at the club.
Zidane and his assistants David Bettoni as well as Hamidou Msaidie took a stroll around the club’s posh facilities including the training field and the club gym. A huge smile adorned the face of the Frenchman as he returned to a place he calls “home”.
Los Blancos have been bundled out of the UEFA Champions League as well as the Copa Del Rey, with La Liga honours seemingly out of reach. Rivals Barcelona have maintained a considerable gap at the top and Zidane will be expected to hit the ground running in his second stint at the Santiago Bernabéu.
What do you make of Zidane’s return to the club?
