Real Madrid to announce Zinedine Zidane return as Santiago Solari replacement on Monday

Zinedine Zidane will return to Real Madrid and the club will appoint him as Santiago Solari’s replacement in the coming hours, according to an exclusive report from La Sexta.

The club has decided to part ways with current coach Solari after a meeting between the Real board of directors.

Marca has revealed Zidane, who departed just 10 months ago, has always been the preferred choice for president Florentino Perez as the next manager in favour of Jose Mourinho.

After elimination from the Copa del Rey and the Champions League, as well as slipping too far behind in LaLiga Santander, Solari’s time at the club is up and Spanish TV programme Jugones claims that Zidane will be named the new coach of Los Blancos at 19:00 on Monday.

Zidane, who led Real to three straight Champions League titles, one of them a part of a historic Liga-Champions double, will assume first-team coaching duties as early as tomorrow morning.
