Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he turned down offers from other clubs to seal a shock return to Real Madrid.
The Frenchman، who won three Champions League titles in a row before quitting just days after last year's final، has replaced Santiago Solari on a deal until 2022.
Zidane insists he is excited to be back at the Bernabeu just nine months after quitting - a decision he maintains was the right one. Speaking to the media on Monday evening، Zidane said: 'When I left it was the right time to leave، I think the players needed a change.
It wasn't just because I wanted to leave. I actually thought after two-and-a-half years of winning almost everything، they needed something else to maintain that momentum.
'There were things that happened during the course of the campaign. I know what this club is about and I gave it much thought but I know this is the right decision.
'I had other offers but I knew I didn't want to take charge of other clubs.
'We have to accept what happens but I carry a love inside for this club that noone can take away from me.
