Three-time Champions League winning manager, Zinedine Zidane, has made a sensational return to Real Madrid as manager, just 10 months after he quit from the same position.
During his two-and-half years tenure at the Bernabeu, the Frenchman guided Madrid to three consecutive Champions League titles.
He will now replace Santi Solari, whose contract was terminated after recording a string of poor results both in the domestic and continental scene.
Zidane's reappointment has been characterised by fanfare and hue among football fans, with many contending the tactician will restore Madrid's fading glory.
@PlatinKr8s joked Zidane's return will see Madrid thrash Ajax Amsterdam in the third leg of the Champions League.
Apparently, it was the Dutch side that dumped the La Liga giants from the European competition in the round of 16.
@MansoorCh18 joked Barcelona will now have to win this season's Champions League as it will be their last with the return of Zidane.
@NonyeBiko and @nyannthiery asserted Eden Hazard deal Madrid is now imminent as the Belgian has previously acknowledged his adoration for Zidane and the Spanish side.
Several others resolved to send the 46-year-old messages of goodwill as he seeks to turn around Madrid's fortunes with 11 La Liga matches to go.
