Zinedine Zidane has revealed why he rejoined Real Madrid in a new deal that will see him manage the club till 2022.
Zidane was re-appoint by the club as replacement for Santiago Solari who has had difficulty managing the club.
He rejoins the club just 9 months after he left just shortly after winning a thrid consecutive champions league trophy for them.
Speaking on why he accepted the deal:
“I know this is a special day for everyone. I’m very happy to return here and that’s the most important thing. I will be starting work tomorrow to put this club back where it deserves to be.
“It’s great to be back – not that I’ve been that far away.
“It’s a massive responsibility. I’m just one more member of the team, this club. I love football and I haven’t forgotten what we have won – but I also haven’t forgotten all the things that we did badly. I know where I am.
“I’ll put everything I have within me to make the team better.
“Things are going to change – they need to. But that’s not a priority right now. We have 11 games left, and the idea is to finish the season well.
“The first thing that entered my head when I got the phone call asking me to come back? I’ll come back – and here I am.
“I don’t have any debt to pay with Real Madrid, I don’t owe the club anything. I’m here because I want to be.
“I’ve spent [the last] nine months living here in Madrid, recharging my batteries. Now I’m ready for new challenges with this great club – the club I love,” Zidane told a press conference on Monday night.
