ZINEDINE ZIDANE has resumed his role as Real Madrid manager.
The former Real Madrid midfielder left the Bernabeu last May after guiding the club to their third Champions League trophy in a row.
Zidane has penned a three-year deal with the Spanish giants, who were dumped out of the Copa del Rey and Champions League last week.
The Frenchman was initially sceptical of taking charge of the club again due to long-standing issues with president Florentino Perez.
Zidane’s initial reluctance to manage Real again would suggest he’s been given a mega-money contract.
But how much will the legendary midfielder earn for his second stint in charge of Los Blancos?
At this moment in time, the finer details of Zidane’s new contract with Real are currently unknown.
But going by his last deal with Los Blancos, which saw him earn £7.2million a year, he will pocket £21.6million if he sees out the entirety of his deal.
He’s now in charge of all the big decisions at Real Madrid.
That equates to £415,384 a week and £59,340 a day.
Again, those figures are based on the contract he signed in September 2017.
So it’s likely he’ll actually earn more money during his third stint in the Spanish capital.
It’s been reported Zidane was convinced to return to Madrid as he’ll be given more freedom to operate and a greater say in club matter
During an appearance on Eleven Sports, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague said: “As you said, there’s a board meeting where basically everybody will say, ‘Yeah, okay.’
“Because that has been decided by Florentino Perez and Jose Angel Sanchez – the two men who are in charge of the side. So there’s a bit of protocol so the board has to know about it.
“But what is interest is the moment that Real Madrid went through their worst week in history – and there’s no other way to put it, everything was lost in one week – Florentino Perez decided that a big decision had to be taken.
“And that meant ringing around to see who was available, what possibilities there were.
“Getting rid of Santi Solari, that was decided very early on.
“And they were a little bit surprised and taken aback when Zidane said, ‘No, I don’t know. I’m not so sure. Maybe in June, we’ll see.’
“But the way to convince him was to guarantee him the authority he demanded in the summer and that he was not given. So he’s now in charge of all the big decisions at Real Madrid.”
Zidane’s first game back in charge of Real will be against Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon.
