Zinedine Zidane is back! And he has marked his return with a win over Celta in the Spanish La Liga.
The Frenchman was reappointed Real Madrid coach earlier this week and marked his return with a 2-0 win over Celta.
Isco and Gareth Bale celebrated their Real Madrid returns under Zinedine Zidane by sealing a 2-0 LaLiga win over Celta Vigo.
Santiago Solari gave Isco a minimal role in his plans but, after Zidane was reappointed to end the Argentinian’s ill-fated tenure, the Spain international returned to the starting XI alongside the similarly ostracised Bale, Marcelo and Keylor Navas.
Bale hit the crossbar and was fortunate not to be sent off, while Navas brilliantly prevented Maxi Gomez from putting relegation-threatened Celta ahead amid an all-action showing from Marcelo.
Madrid may not have played particularly well – they were dreadful in the opening 30 minutes – but that was hardly the point, as they grabbed all three points.
