The Galacticos have struggled in recent times and were beaten twice at home in the period of one week by their biggest rival, Barcelona.

These results and the Champions League mauling at the hands of Ajax, led to the sack of Solari by the board and the reappointment of Zidane as head coach of the club where he made his name both as a player and manager.

Zidane returns less than a year after his shocking departure from the Bernabeu on the back of winning three Champions League title consecutively, two Club World Cups and UEFA Super Cups apiece, one LaLiga title and a Spanish Super Cup.

His departure from the club along with Ronaldo joining Juventus was one of the most shocking transfer last summer.

The Frenchman who has been involved in Madrid's last five European triumph both as a player and coach, has signed a deal until 30 June 2022.
