Less than a year after walking out of the job in the summer, Zinedine Zidane has returned to Real Madrid to replace Santiago Solari on Monday.
As ever, with a major, out-of-the-blue story such as this, the Twitter faithful have some strong opinions they are all too happy to share, and we’ve thrown the highlights together here.
The general vibe was one of celebration…
Despite a long, hard season, there was some love for Solari.
Thank you for all you’ve done solari, but it’s time to moooveee on

Some were skeptical about Zizou’s decision.
Zidane is a good for going back to Real Madrid. Wouldn’t touch that club with a barge pole right now.
