Previous France midfielder and chief, Zinedine Zidane has been reappointed as mentor at Real Madrid, after the Spanish La Liga side sacked Santiago Solari on Monday. Zidane won a remarkable three successive UEFA Champions League titles with the Spanish monsters before leaving in May a year ago. Julen Lopetegui, who supplanted him was sacked in October, with Solari his substitution enduring a little more than four months in control.

It included that the 46-year-old would be in control for whatever remains of the period and three additional seasons until 2022.
