Having won only 17 out of 25 matches with Los Blancos, Benítez’s last match for Real Madrid ended in a 2–2 draw to Valencia in an away match on Sunday; they are 3rd in the La Liga table, 4 points behind league leaders and local rivals Atlético Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane is a former Real Madrid legend and coach of Real’s reserve team, Real Madrid Castilla. Real’s president Florentino Pérez appointed the Frenchman and said Zidane “knows better than anyone just what it means to lead the Real Madrid first-team squad.”
Real Madrid has had 11 managers in the 12 years that Pérez has been president. Zidane, expressing his gratitude to Pérez, said “I’m going to put my heart and soul into this club”.
Zidane was assistant manager to Ancelotti when Real Madrid won their tenth European Championship. Back in 2001, Real Madrid paid Turin-based club Juventus FC the equivalent of £45.8 million to sign Zidane. Pérez said to Zidane, “This is your stadium and your club and you have all our confidence and trust to make the fans excited once more. It makes me proud because I know that for you the word impossible does not exist.”
