Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is certain that the reappointment of Zinedine Zidane is perfect for European champions Real Madrid.
French football legend Zidane is back as the Real Madrid manager just nine months after he resigned from the post.
Zidane had stunned the footballing world last summer when he left the Real Madrid managerial job shortly after leading the Los Merengues to an unprecedented third successive Champions League title via a 3-1 victory over Premier League giants Liverpool in their final clash in May 2018.
The 1998 World Cup winner has signed a three-year contract at Real Madrid until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Reacting to his appointment, former Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed that Zidane is a perfect fit for the club.
Mourinho talked about Zinedine Zidane in an interview with media outlet El Chiringuito.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez initially wanted Mourinho to return to the club but the players including skipper Sergio Ramos were opposed to his appointment.
Jose Mourinho spent three years at Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013.
The Portuguese tactician won the 2011/12 Spanish La Liga title with the Los Merengues and also led them to three successive semifinal outings in the Champions League.
