Sergio Ramos: Real Madrid captain takes blame for ban and defends club

Real Madrid have sacked Santiago Solari and replaced him with Zinedine Zidane, the club confirmed on Monday.

Zidane, who left Real last summer after two and half years in charge, has signed a contract at the Bernabeu until June 2022 and says he is looking forward to managing the Spanish giants for a second time.

They crashed out of the Copa del Rey in the semi-finals to Barcelona, their tenuous La Liga title challenge finally came to an end and then to top it all off they relinquished their Champions League crown, after falling to Ajax in the last-16.

"What I think is that this team needs to continue winning but I think it needs a change, a different voice, another methodology", he said at a news conference explaining his resignation past year.

The mood in the Los Blancos camp appears to be boring at the moment, with Real having crashed out of both the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League in the last week and a half.

Zinedine Zidane has agreed to return to Real Madrid as head coach, according to widespread reports in Spain.

"Real Madrid appreciates the work done by Santiago Solari and the commitment and loyalty he has always shown to this house".

Real Madrid's solution to the current crisis is the man whose departure led to it. Madrid hired Solari in November, giving him a contract through 2021.

It has been widely reported that out-of-favour Marcelo and captain Sergio Ramos clashed during a training session in the build up to Real Madrid's LaLiga clash on Sunday night. The former player could remain with the club despite of Zidane's arrival, but in a different position.

Jose Mourinho looked like the initial front-runner for a return to the club, but it's thought that there's too much difference of opinion within the club about the Portuguese.

During his first spell with the club, over the course of less than three seasons, he managed to win nine trophies.
