Being reported he is on his way back. He’ll need some good fortune to sort them out.
Interesting if true. There have been rumours of Mourinho going back so it does seem they have been looking at bringing back a former boss.
Surprised at this honestly, not a fan of the club and thought ZZ would have more self respect than go back there.
He isn't the sole reason their form has slumped. They have allowed the squad to grow old and never planned suitably for the loss of Ronaldo who was single handedly transforming them from a great team into an exceptional one. They also have a player power problem IMO.
Will be interesting to see what they do in the summer window.
That club needs a massive overhaul, on an unparalleled scale. Whether he gets the funds remains to be seen ....
They always find the money.
I really dislike that club, had to watch them every week to get my ZZ fix. My favourite ever player
Wow, is that for real!
They should just go and get Poch. He'll sort their squad out and leave them with a legacy of good, younger players which is exactly what they need. Needs an overhaul.
Poch will go to United.
Thank god for that
I'd heard nuno was going there if we won the next 3 games and scored 5 or more goals
Zinedine Zidane: Real Madrid reappoint Frenchman to replace Santiago Solari
Strange but he did have an excellent record tbf
Not going to the Albion then
Next summer when Ole has tried and failed, perhaps.
I loved ZZ too, especially when he dropped the nut on that Italian.
The news Hazard has been waiting for.?
Don't remember the name.
Can't believe they didn't go for Stale Solbakken with his Champions League experience and beautiful passing, attacking football.
ZZ basically said when he left that it was going to go to pot; that the right investment would have to be made, inferring that was not the plan as things stood.
Him going back suggests they've told him they'll make that investment.
Either that, or they wheeled out several yachtloads of cash.
Me neither but I bet he still feel it. He must have said something so bad to provoke Zidane to that extent and on the world stage.
I think most viewers felt innately that Zidane,although guilty of the head butt, felt that the Italian was at least equally to blame.
I think Zidane grew up in one of the toughest ghettos in south of France....so be careful what you say to a bloke.
One would have thought that he would have given immense thought before he resigned from Real. It’s not a position you surrender casually.
And now, a brief 10 months later, he wants to come back? Are you kidding me?
Red flags, Real, red flags.
If I was Real president Pérez, I would offer Zidane an expense account only and his contract to be paid only on completion of the contract, 2022.
Of course, I know that won’t happen just emphasizing a point.
I read that it was a derogatory comment about his sister.
Yeah but FIFA and all parties seemed to keep this close to their chest... kinda left it all ambiguous, imo. The truth is probably with Hoffa....lol
If I recall correctly, it was technically the opposite of a derogatory comment... he said she was a good ****....
regarding Zidane - i just read this on his wiki:
"As the playmaker at Juve, Zidane played just behind forward Alessandro Del Piero, with Del Piero recalling, "Zidane had an extraordinary talent, which contributed to his sole interest in helping the team. He was not a selfish player. He had a unique ability to be a great and to be a team player. I was lucky to play with him." He lost in the 1997 UEFA Champions League Final 3–1 to Borussia Dortmund when he was unable to make an impression against the close marking of Paul Lambert."
I remember it being about calling his mother a terrorist.
Lambert played in the Champuons League final?! Why did he never mention it?
It's professional football, players are constantly winding each other up to try and get an advantage. Zidane was entirely at fault for reacting.
Did you not realize I knew that? Really?
And that Zidane, after many years coming up through the ranks and playing at the highest levels of football, probably had heard it all before?
Don’t misread me....I never did and am not condoning his choice of actions but if somebody insults me or somebody I love, then I most likely will want to ‘have a talk with you’...it depends on the intensity and/or animosity of the remark.
Are we clear?
And got sent off and gave Italy the cup? Yeah, I love him too.
Thanks for getting back....you just answered my next question.
Lucky that he didn't get decked in response. His ego matched Real very well.
And in Germany too, who'd have thought it..
Self-indulgent rubbish just like Zidane. Your ego could cost your team dear, just like Zidane's did France, but you just have to indulge it. The ultimate in putting yourself ahead of your team. Pathetic.
Looks like Gareth Bale could be the biggest loser. Seems like Real will break several banks to bring players in this summer (at least one of Hazard, Eriksen or even Mbappe spring to mind). Love Bale as a player but can see him being stranded - high wages and an iffy injury record.
If they can offload Ronaldo they will have no hesitation in doing so with Bale.
Hazard, particularly if Chelsea don't qualify for the Champions League and the transfer embargo is enforced, seems highly likely. Chelsea will doubtless resist though, particularly if they can't get a replacement...
I'm sure they'd love to offload him - it's a case if they can find anyone to take him. Ronaldo was still going strong, incredibly fit for a 33-year-old and has arguably the greatest commercial potential of any footballer in the world. Bale's been out of form and has missed a lot of football through injury over the past few years. You'd think money would rule Spurs or Arsenal out, Man United and Man City are well stocked in that position and I just couldn't see him at Liverpool or Chelsea (maybe the latter as part of a deal for Hazard - who knows?).
Bale always was injury prone. Takes longer to come back as he gets older.. .
Looks like Zidane has got his wish from last summer and convinced Real to spend big on the squad. They've signed highly-rated 21 year old Eder Militao from Porto for a "big buyout clause".
