The 46-year-old Frenchman was re-instated as Real's manager for his second stint at the club on Monday.

Yet despite speculation over the future of players such as Gareth Bale and Marcelo, the Madrid boss stressed he does not see the end-of-season run-in as an audition for those who may be on their way out.

"Knowing him well enough, he must have thought it was the best thing to do".

With Madrid already out of the Champions League and 12 points behind LaLiga leaders Barcelona with 11 games to go, Zidane seemingly faces a rebuilding job in the close-season.

Zidane's departure and sudden return reminds one of a flawless relationship ending due to timing and other circumstances and now the Frenchman returns to his one true love having seen them take a massive fall from grace and will be hoping to rekindle the love affair between the manager, club and most importantly the fans.

"Why would they need to give me an explanation?", Mourinho responded to a question if Real Madrid offered him an explanation after missing the managerial role.

"I think it is flawless and fantastic", the former Chelsea boss said, even as he was quick to add he was never disappointed by Madrid's decision not to hire him.
