Real Madrid Coach Responds To Comparisons With Zidane

New Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari has responded to comparisons with former coach Zinedine Zidane following a good start to life at the club.
 
 
Following the departure of Julen Lopetegui, Solari took over an interim basis and led the club to four successive wins all competitions.
 
As a result, Solari was handed the job on a permanent basis, signing a deal until 2023.
 
However, Solari, who played alongside Zidane at Real, has played any comparisons between himself and the Frenchman, who won three straight UEFA Champions League titles during his reign.
 
"Zidane is incomparable with anyone," Solari told reports, according to FourFourTwo.
 
"He is a legend, he had a fantastic level. He was an exquisite player, with whom I was lucky to play.
 
"But as a coach he will probably be the most successful in the history of Real Madrid. I admire him as a human and we must admire him in his greatness. He is unique."
 
 
Do you think Solari will be a success at Real Madrid? Let us know in the comment section below.
