Zinedine Zidane reappointed as Real Madrid manager again

AKIPRESS.COM - Zinedine Zidane said he is "very happy to be home" after returning as Real Madrid manager just 10 months after leaving the Spanish giants, BBC Sport reports.

The Frenchman replaces Santiago Solari, who was sacked after less than five months in charge.

Former Real midfielder Zidane, 46, who left in May after leading the club to a third straight Champions League trophy, has agreed to take over until 2022.

Real are currently third in La Liga, 12 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Zidane stepped down following the Champions League final victory over Liverpool, and Julen Lopetegui was hired as his successor just before the World Cup where he had been due to lead Spain, who promptly sacked him.
