Zidane, 46, left the job in May after leading Madrid to the third Champions League title during his tenure.

"The board of directors also agreed on the appointment of Zinedine Zidane as head coach of Real Madrid with immediate effect for the remainder of the season and the next three campaigns, until 30 June 2022".

Ramos also addressed his deliberate yellow card in the Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Ajax which saw him miss defeat in the second leg.

Spanish television channel La Sexta said on Monday the former France great has accepted an offer to replace Santiago Solari.

On Zidane's return to Real Madrid on a three-and-a-half year deal, Calderon added: "The players loved him and he was able to change the ideas of coaches like Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho who managed with a strong hand".

Solari led the team to a 4-1 win at Valladolid on Sunday and was in charge of practice on Monday.

Real Madrid now occupy the third spot in La Liga and will be looking forward to improving their performances when they host Celta Vigo in their next La Liga game.

That 4-1 home defeat and 5-3 aggregate loss to the Dutch side was the final straw for Real president Florentino Perez.

And the Daily Mail now report the defender has told Madrid chiefs that he is preparing to leave the capital.

"Recent events have been disastrous and I'm not hiding. We the players are primarily responsible and I, as captain, more than anyone".

The incident between long-time defensive colleagues Ramos and Marcelo took place towards the end of Saturday's session at Madrid's Valdebebas training ground. On Solari's position, Ramos said: "It's a decision that's not ours to make and in which we never interfere".

"It's our obligation to carry on, to work and to evolve".
