With Santiago Solari after a disastrous week that saw their season end, Real Madrid president, Fiorentino Perez is said to have called Zinedine Zidane to return to the club, though the chance was rejected.

46-year-old Zidane, left the club last summer five days after winning a third straight Champions League title. He shocked Real by walking out just days after a famous win against Liverpool which made him the first manager to win three European Cups in a row and only the third to win three in total – along with Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti.

Speaking on a possible return of the club legend to the helm of affairs, Calderon told BBC Radio 5 Live:

“I know that this morning the president [Florentino Perez] called Zidane to ask him back, he said not now.

“He has left open the possibility of coming back in June.”
