Rafa Benitez was unceremoniously given the sack by Spanish giants Real Madrid after a 2-2 draw against Valencia, and his replacement will be none other than former Galactico Zinedine Zidane.
Alongside the likes of Luis Figo, David Beckham, Ronaldo de Lima and Raul Ganzalez — Zinedine Zidane was a part of one of the most legendary sides ever assembled in football history, the Galacticos. The French midfielder had a storied career at Real Madrid before taking on a managerial job at the club.
Now, after coaching Real Madrid’s B-side since 2014 as well as serving as Sports Director and assistant coach at the Santiago Bernabeu, Zidane or ‘Zizou’ as he is fondly referred to is taking over the reigns as manager of Real Madrid.
Check out the video of his official unveiling below.
