Zinedine Zidane returning as manager of Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho, Portuguese football coach, rejected by 4 players at Real Madrid

Real Madrid have made the first move in their bid to sign Eden Hazard, by approaching Chelsea about a summer deal, with the Belgian's idol, Zinedine Zidane, making a spectacular return to the Bernabeu.

So much had happened in such a short amount of time but Zidane, having won the Champions League and La Liga last season, found himself in the firing line a year later.

They were three consecutive Champions League titles, one La Liga title, two European SuperCups, two Club World Cups and one Spanish Super Cup.

Solari took over from Lopetegui as an interim coach and eventually was given a full-time job - with a contract until 2021 - after putting the team back on track.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has taken to Instagram to respond to a series of issues now dogging him and the club. "And I want to get to work".

Ramos, who was also suspended for Sunday's 4-1 LaLiga win at Real Valladolid but travelled with the team nonetheless, has now sought to explain his side of the story on recent topics while also lending support to under-fire head coach Santiago Solari.

Wernick called her December 19 and said: "I think (the prime minister) is gonna find a way to get it done one way or another". On Wednesday, the Liberal MPs on the committee, who have a 5-4 majority, blocked an opposition call for her return.

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

Barca beat Real 1-0 in the league at the Bernabeu on March 2 just three days after winning 3-0 in Madrid to knock their arch-rivals out of the Copa del Rey in the semi-finals. The Wales worldwide fell out of favour with Zidane during the Frenchman's final season in charge, and his return may force Bale to consider his future should he get the impression that he'll once again be on the peripheries of the starting XI.

That's not the club Zidane left behind.

Almost 10 months after he resigned, Zidane returns to a club in disarray.

Ramos also addressed his deliberate yellow card in the Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Ajax which saw him miss defeat in the second leg.

Being the son of the coach, young Luca Zidane could be given a more prominent role at the club, but potentially the most interesting case if that of Isco, whose time in the Spanish capital has been patchy at best. "I'm happy to be here and I have to think about Saturday's game".
