Madrid, March 11: Zinedine Zidane is heading back to Real Madrid, just 10 months after stepping down as head coach.

The former France star emerged on Monday as the surprise choice to take over from Santiago Solari, who has paid the price for humbling defeats to Barcelona and Ajax, and his appointment was duly confirmed later that day.

Zidane delivered huge success in his first spell as Madrid boss between January 2016 and last May, when he stunned president Florentino Perez by deciding to walk away.
