The Frenchman replaces Santiago Solari at the helm of the Galacticos amidst their disastrous campaign this season.
Finally some good news for the Real Madrid fans as their former gaffer Zinedine Zidane has officially taken charge at Santiago Bernabeu as the new manager. The Frenchman comes back to replace Santiago Solari, under whose stewardship, the Galacticos faced a disastrous time in all competitions this season. They were knocked out of the Champions League by Ajax in a shock 4-1 defeat in the second leg of the Champions League tie after being defeated twice in the span of four days by arch-rivals Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey semi-final and the La Liga El Clasico.
The Frenchman has had a prolific record during his last tenure with Los Blancos. He won the La Liga and the Copa Del Rey once but the main highlight of his managerial career was winning the Champions League three times in a row with Real Madrid. He has been one of the best managers in the history of the club and is known for his attacking mentality. The distraught Real Madrid fans would hope for an end to their miseries and a much better outing in the next season once the former World Cup winner takes over the reins at the Spanish club for a second time.
