After leaving Real Madrid in 2021, coach Zidane almost “disappeared” from the football world. He did not accept any job offer, despite receiving many offers.
Many sources said that Zidane waited until after the 2022 World Cup to apply for the position of coach of France. However, the fact that coach Deschamps continued to stick with the French team made Zidane’s plan impossible.
According to information from AS, president Perez of Real Madrid is considering the possibility of inviting Zidane back to the Bernabeu. Real’s leaders want the French coach to take the position of sports consultant of the team, supporting coach Ancelotti.
Even the president of Los Blancos also anticipates the possibility of appointing Zidane to the position of Real Madrid’s head coach for a third term. With coach Carlo Ancelotti’s contract expiring in June 2024, Los Blancos can completely appoint Zidane to the position of head coach in case this team cannot find a quality option on the chair.
AS also said that Zidane’s return to Real Madrid will bring positive effects to this team. Accordingly, Zidane’s appointment as a sports consultant will bring advantages to Real in the process of negotiating to recruit Kylian Mbappe.
In the past two terms as Real Madrid coach, Zidane has achieved countless successes. He led the team to three consecutive Champions League titles in his first term. Zizou continued to prove his mark when helping Real to the throne in the turbulent 2019/2020 La Liga season.
