Why Real Madrid Appointed Zidane Instead Of Mourinho

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon says the club refused the option of Jose Mourinho as the manager because he was rejected by the players.

However, Real Madrid have returned Zidane as manager of the club for a second spell.

Mourinho had been tipped to replace Santiago Solari, but Zidane was named coach on another dramatic day at Real.

Calderon said, “It’s a good choice. The other one was Mourinho.

“But I think in the last few days the leaders of the dressing room have pushed to reject that possibility.

“He left here with a lot of problems. I think he would have been another problem added to the ones we already have.

“First of all it’s good to have him (Zidane) back as a coach.”
