Zidane Returns to Real Madrid with Three-Year Deal

Zinedine Zidane has been reappointed as manager of Real Madrid on a three-year contract after the club had sacked Santiago Solari.

"Real Madrid appreciates the work done by Santiago Solari and the commitment and loyalty he has always shown to this house," Real Madrid said in a statement on Monday, adding that Solari has been offered the opportunity to remain at the club in an alternative role.

"The Board of Directors has also agreed the appointment of Zinedine Zidane as the new coach of Real Madrid with immediate incorporation for the remainder of the season and the next three, until June 30, 2022."

Zidane previously served as Real Madrid coach in January 2016 and left two years later after leading the club to three consecutive Champions League titles.
