The football legend resigned as Real Madrid manager in May 2018, citing the club’s "need for change," despite winning the Champions League three times in a row.

Former manager for Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane has announced that he wants to return to his coaching career in an interview with TVE. The football star has justified his desire to get back into management "soon" by saying that football is what he likes and what he has done all his life.

It is unclear so far what club will hire Zidane, but according to The Independent, the odds are good that Manchester United, which has had a weak start this season, could hire the football legend. The suggestion comes at odds with recent statements by Manchester United's Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward's statements, who said that current manager Jose Mourinho will be given a chance to remedy the situation.
