Bulgaria: Zidane Returns to Real Madrid

Real Madrid's leadership at a special general meeting today officially appointed Zinedine Zidane as a coach, replacing Santiago Solari. The contract of the legendary Frenchman is until June 2022.

In recent days, it was said that the president of the Royal Club, Florentino Perez, nominated Jose Mourinho for the post, but the other members of the Board of Directors disagreed. So surprising this afternoon, the information came out that Zidane would return to the head of the "white ballet", and only 10 months after he left.

According to unofficial information, Zidane has agreed to take on Madrid again because his management has promised 300 million euros for summer selection, with goal number 1 being Chelsea Eden Hazard. Renowned journalists like Guillaume Balagi have reported that Zidane's desire was to have the role not only of a coach but also of a sports director to make the final decision on all sports and technical issues pertaining to the club.

Real Madrid's official site recalled that Zidane kept a club coach record for results in his first 70 games - 51 wins, 14 draws and 5 losses. Under his management, the "white ballet" set a record for the most consecutive matches with a goal scored in Spain - 73, as well as the most consecutive matches without defeat (40).

In Italy, immediately speculated that Zidane would replace Massimiliano Allegri after the end of the season in Juventus and England was also said to be among the potential heirs of Maurizio Sari in Chelsea.

For three seasons of Santiago Bernabeu, Zidane won 9 trophies, leading the team in a total of 149 fights (105 wins, 28 draws, 16 losses) and triumphed in La Liga in 2017 and three times in the Champions League.
