Zinedine Zidane is back at the helm of Real Madrid, a mere 284 days since they parted ways. He is back and his priority is to rescue and revitalise a struggling squad that has been on a downward spiral ever since his departure on May 31 2018. After being presented as the new coach at 20:00 CET on Monday evening, Zidane will take charge of his first training session on Tuesday morning. He will take over for the rest of the campaign and then be in charge for another three seasons. Zidane was the standout favourite for Florentino Perez and the Real Madrid president was willing to do whatever it took to get him back on side. He made his decision to re-appoint the Frenchman after his team's Champions League hoped were dealt a huge blow when they were dumped out of the competition by Ajax. The only stumbling block was convincing Zidane to return to his former club. It seems it only required two conversations to twist his arm and Zidane is now back at the club that he has called home … [Read more...] about Official: Zinedine Zidane is back as Real Madrid coach after 284 days

With Santiago Solari's future up in the air, Zinedine Zidane could return to manage the club he left last summer. The Frenchman resigned at the end of last season after winning his third consecutive Champions League title in his third year with Los Blancos, but is a candidate to come back and if he does then he'll join a select list of coaches that have managed Real Madrid on more than one occasion. Here, we take a look at how these coaches fared during their second stint. Having taken charge of Real Zaragoza and the Spanish national team, Quincoces was appointed as manager of Real Madrid in 1945. The former defender finished fourth in LaLiga and secured the Copa del Generalisimo with a 3-1 win over Valencia in the final.

With just five wins in the first 17 games of his second reign at the club, Quincoces was dismissed as Real Madrid eventually finished … [Read more...] about How did former Real Madrid coaches get on in their second stint in charge?

Jose Mourinho has been linked heavily with a return to the Spanish capital in recent days, not least by man himself as part of his punditry duties, however despite the incredible respect Perez has for the Portuguese coach, he's not deemed to have the right profile at this time. Perez has been stung by the disaster of the 2018/19 campaign, especially with it he who made the choice not to directly replace Cristiano Ronaldo, instead placing his faith in players already at the club. The list of potential candidates to take the top job at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu isn't a large one, and it will likely come down to one of Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino or Massimiliano Allegri. All three have differing styles and experience, but have each achieved … [Read more...] about Who will be the next Real Madrid coach?
