Zinedine Zidane will return to be coach of Real Madrid

The tasks facing Zidane as he returns to Real Madrid

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.

After his first appointment as coach in January 2016, he oversaw one of Real Madrid's most glorious eras, in which it won three UEFA Champions Leagues, two FIFA Club World Cups, two UEFA Supercups, one La Liga title and one Spanish Super Cup in two-and-a-half seasons.

Julen Lopetegui was sacked after three months and Santiago Solari's team self-combusted in six days, as defeats to Barcelona, twice, and Ajax rendered their season dead before the middle of March.

"You can't help but admire what he has done", France manager Didier Deschamps, who won the World Cup as a player alongside Zidane in 1998, told France's TF1 after they beat Liverpool in Kiev.

I left because I needed it personally and thought the squad did too.

I don't think that. The former midfielder stated his reason behind the move was "because the president called me, and I love the president and the club very much". "I want to put this club back where it belongs".

Following Zidane out of the door of the Bernabeu is Portuguese forward Ronaldo.

The deal is for a reported €112 million (Dh462.3m), but they are losing a man who scored 311 times in his time at the club, and predictably filling that void is always going to be a tall order. He has achieved European history at Real Madrid.

He replaces Santiago Solari, who was in charge of the Spanish giant for just four-plus months. We should only think about the 11 games and not about next season.

Rules in Spanish football mean that a club can only have someone in a caretaker role for no more then two weeks.

Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Valladolid on Sunday couldn't preserve Solari's job.

Results have begun to dip for Solari after an initial resurgence, and there is talk of disharmony in the dressing room, particularly around Welsh striker Gareth Bale.

He joins the club with Los Blancos 12 points off of LaLiga Santander leaders Barcelona and having been eliminated from the Copa del Rey and Champions League.

Zidane revealed that Perez was an important reason as to why he returned to the club, despite resigning less than a year ago.

His first game back in charge will be on Saturday against Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu.
