MADRID: Zinedine Zidane said he had no doubt that he had returned to Real Madrid after taking the Santiago Solari as coach on Monday (March 11).

"When the president called me my first thing I thought: go," said Zidane at a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu. "I couldn't say there wasn't, I had no doubt about returning."

Solari was due to be killed after three homes in succession – to Barcelona, ​​twice, and Ajax – to consider the Madrid radar by the middle of March.

But Zidane is back, with just 11 games remaining in La Liga, and nothing else is played for it, not surprisingly, especially after leaving it at a high level of other European advantage.

"I left it, because I had to change at the end of the last season, for everyone to enjoy, after much of it was won," said Zidane.

"I came back because the president called me. I love him and I love this club, so I'm."

Zidane gets a team that has even come through in his short time away, with Cristiano Ronaldo away and people like Thibaut Courtois, Vinicius Junior and Sergio Reguilon all get more of this season. T .

The challenge for Zidane will be to change over time in the summer, when older musicians may be transformed and introduce younger talent.

“I don't want to forget what we've won but I don't forget the things we did badly last year,” said Zidane.

“We lost in the league and the cup, we won the Champions League, but I know where I am.

“We will be turning things around for the future. But now it's not about that – I'm a very important thing. We will have time to talk to the president, the club, about what we do. "


Most of the players are in high demand, and it is almost certain that Zidane will build confidence in the dressing room, after a week in which Sergio Ramos has argued with a president. Florentino Perez club and be involved in a spat by Marcelo.

Gareth Bale was one of the few people who lost at the time of the Zidane voyage before and the pair had only short of speech terms in the run up to the Champions League final.

There is no question about the future of Bale if their relationship cannot be repaired quickly.

Instead, Ronaldo had gone to leave and Zidane is now taking over a team that needs to lose Portugal's goals and needs restoration.

According to Ronaldo's ability to return to Madrid, Zidane said: "It's not the case today. We have 11 games for play, and we see. We all know Cristiano, and it's his history of this club one of the best, but today he doesn't want to talk about these things. "

In the absence of Madrid in the Champions League, La Liga has the same level of league league title for Barcelona in 11 years.

Madrid sits 12 points in the table though they win 4-1 over Real Valladolid in the Sunday, which was Solari's final game in charge.

Famous problems, including lack of visits and strict defense, brought the cover back in February so that he was quickly defeated at Girona at home and lost in Barcelona and a league cup, and Ajax's embarrassment in the last 16 of the Champions League.

"I don't blame anyone," said Zidane. (Julen) Lopetegui and Solari wanted to do the best for the club.
