Real Madrid have announced the appointment of Zinedine Zidane as coach for the first team until June 30, 2022


A statement issued by the club said on Monday: The contract that linked Santiago Solari was terminated as coach of the first team.

The club said it appreciated loyalty and commitment to the work shown by coach Solari in the previous period. The former player was offered the opportunity to stay at the club.

Zidane will lead the team immediately, and club president Florentino Perez and Zidane will appear at a press conference at 8 pm (10 pm GMT) at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Zidane wrote glamorous historical pages in Madrid when he came as substitute for Ravenna Benitez in early 2016, winning the Champions League for three straight seasons, as no one has ever done before.

The announcement of Zidane's return came at a difficult time for the club to be out of the Champions League by Ajax Amsterdam and the Spanish Cup by Barcelona and losing the opportunity to compete for the league "logically."

Zidane was disengaged from Real Madrid on 31-5-2018, and Loptegui, who did not finish the season, came in.

In his first term, Zidane led Real Madrid in 149 games, winning 104, drawing 29 and losing 16 games. His winning streak was 70%, with 9 titles.
