His figure has ended up imposing itself to lead the meringues again over other names that had sounded these days such as the subsidiary's coach, Raúl González, the Argentine PSG coach, Mauricio Pochettino, or the Italian Antonio Conte.
Faced with the firmness of the latter, a dressing room as full of figures as Real Madrid, will welcome the arrival of a coach known for his tranquility and left hand when treating his players.
The Italian coach returns to a club, where players and fans remember him fondly, especially after being the architect of the much sought after 'Tenth' Real Madrid Champions, which he won in 2014, precisely with Zidane as his assistant.
Now, after a season without titles in the white giant, Ancelotti, who during his time at Real Madrid won, in addition to the Champions League, a King's Cup, a European Super Cup and a Club World Cup, returns to rebuild the merengue team and aim for trophies next season.
