ZIDANE WAS ACTUALLY THE SECOND CHOICE AS MANAGER AT REAL MADRID.
Actually Chelsea were very keen to appoint the sacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as the manager of Real Madrid.
But Jose Mourinho was very keen to stay on in England and try to get the job as the manager of Manchester United club.
But it now looks like Louis Van Gaal will not be sacked soon, and even if he is sacked the job would o to Ryan Giggs instead.
After Jose Mourinho rejected the Real Madrid job, then president Florentino Perez appointed Zinedine zidane as the manager of Real Madrid.
