The return of the prodigal Zidane

The return of the prodigal Zidane

On Monday evening it became known that Zinedine Zidane has officially returned to Real Madrid eight months later. Los Blancos’ president Florentino Perez convinced the Frenchman after the second call to the decorated coach.

Only yesterday we talked about Zidane being of interest to Juventus Turin and the Italians had sent an official offer to their former player, when it became known in the evening about the Frenchman’s return to Santiago Bernabeu. A streak of losses in the championship and revolting game became the reason for Perez to urgently sack Santiago Solari and put all the effort to retrieve Zinedine Zidane.

Last week, the President called the former/new Real manager, but he responded with a refusal to request to return. Zidane stated that he wanted to wait until June at least. However, the uncertain game against Valladolid in the latest match with a positive outcome made the functionary concede.

Together with Zidane, Real Madrid won the Champions League three times in a row, the UEFA Super Cup twice and the club world cup and also the Spanish Super Cup and the championship once each. During that time, Zidane achieved 104 victories in 149 matches at the post of Los Blancos manager.

The former Juventus and Real Madrid footballer signed the agreement with the club until 2022. If we talk about usefulness of this return, then this is a similar case to the return of Jardim to Monaco. One cannot deny that Perez convinced Zidane not only with a good contract, but also the sum on transfers, as Real need quality strengthening, purchase a leader to the team and generations change.

Considering the possibilities, which will open before Zizou, it is quite possible that next season he will continue his victorious procession in the Champions League. The second question is how will Zidane cope with the horror, which is happening in the team’s locker room and where will objectionable for him Bale go. It is only clear that Isco will not go anywhere now and tsunami awaits Real in the summer, which will wash away the objectionable ones for him. As judging by the events, he is the main king of Santiago Bernabeu now.
