Zidane rejects chance for Real Madrid return

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane reportedly rejected the chance to move back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Zidane resigned as the Los Blancos boss this past summer, just days after they had won their third consecutive UEFA Champions League title.

Zidane had rejected the chance to re-sign with the club, following Julen Lopetegui's sacking some days ago, Spanish Calciomercato reported.

The players reportedly wanted him back and were eager to work under him again, but the Frenchman rejected the chance, with an eye on other challenges elsewhere.
