Zinedine Zidane has signed a new contract with Real Madrid, which will economically promote his as ‘Real Madrid manager’, claims Eurosport UK. The legendary midfielder was the coach of Real Madrid youth team, Real Castilla until Rafael Benitez was sacked in the start of this year.

But the sacking of Benitez saw Zidane raised to the manager of the Real Madrid, but the deal for the Frenchman was his earlier that running upto 2018. The new deal will see Zidane the same time period, but considerable increase in the salary, although that has not been clarified yet.  

The 43-year-old was the crucial part of the Los Blancos from 2001 to 2006, and was appointed as the Real Madrid Assistant coach in 2013, before taking up the helm at Real Castilla. 

Zidane had an incredible start to his life as the manager, and has greased the out-of-form players to perform up to their potentials. Pundits and fans are equivocally spoken plenty of praises for their former talismanic player, whom they believe could equally shine in his new capacity as his old days. Players also took social media to express their gratitude and happiness in having Zidane as the manager.

Zidane is expected to bring Real Madrid into the glorious days of past. He has won an array of accolades with Real Madrid and has also won the FIFA World Cup in 1998. He has also won the FIFA Player of the Year award three times, in 1998, 2000 and 2003. The footballing world is analysing the new manager very keenly, with high hopes pressurizing him.
