Reactions have continued to trail the Monday sacking of Rafa Benitez as manager of Real Madrid after just seven months in charge in a deal that was supposed to last three years.
A former Galactico, David Beckham has reaction to the appointment of club legend Zinedine Zidane as the 14th manager of Los Blancos since the beginning of this century.
Beckham played with Zidane for three years at Real after making a switch from Manchester United in 2003.
In an Instagram post, the Englishman said: “Does it get any better than this?? A man that has been the best at a game we all love taking over a club that myself and many more people love.
“Someone with drive, passion and also doesn’t accept failure on any level taking over from a manager that has huge experience and respect in the game, but taking on a position that he will relish.
“The best person for the job.”
Zidane, the former coach of Real Madrid Castilla, was signed on a two and half year contract to turn things around at the club that sits in third place on the Spanish La Liga behind bitter rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
