Zinedine Zidane wants Real Madrid glory days to return

It is widely reported in Spain that Zinedine Zidane has agreed to go back to Real Madrid to replace Santiago Solari.

The only silverware still on offer for Real Madrid is the league, and Barcelona holds a 12-point advantage in the table with 11 matches to play, so it would take an epic collapse by the club's biggest, bitterest rival.

Real crashed out of the Champions League in the last 16 with a 4-1 loss to Ajax last week, their fourth straight home defeat.

When he first took over from Rafael Benitez in 2016, Zidane won nine trophies at Madrid and was considered one of the most successful managers of the club.

On Solari's position, Ramos said: "It's a decision that's not ours to make and in which we never interfere. But it will not be easy and I predict it will be very hard over the next three months".

Zidane, 46, left the job in May after leading Madrid to the third Champions League title during his tenure. "And I want to get to work".

Real Madrid's solution to the current crisis is the man whose departure led to it.

In a series of posts on his Twitter account, the Real Madrid captain also launched a passionate defence of the club amid mounting speculation over the future of coach Santiago Solari.

Zidane has a long history with the club, even before managing the giants. Madrid hired Solari in November, giving him a contract through 2021.

Ramos was reportedly engaged in a heated argument with club president Florentino Perez after the game, in which he countered accusations of unprofessionalism by attributing Madrid's problems to bad planning at the top of the club.

"I understand Mourinho will sign a deal for the remainder of this season and for another three years, with a net salary of £17m per year", he wrote in the i newspaper.
