Zinedine Zidane, who guided Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League triumphs, has decided to wait until the summer before considering the job again.
Real Madrid are reportedly in crisis mode after they were dumped out of the Copa del Rey and Champions League in the span of a week and former club President Ramon Calderon feels that they have already reached out to Zinedine Zidane in an attempt to coax the Frenchman back to the club.
However, Calderon reveals that Zidane, who is currently without a club, has turned down the offer to replace Santiago Solari now but has still left the door open for a summer return.

“I know that this morning the president [Florentino Perez] called Zidane to ask him back, he said not now.
“He has left open the possibility of coming back in June,” he said.
Calderon also criticized Real Madrid approaching another former manager in Jose Mourinho as he feels that he’s got a completely different footballing ethos as compared to Zinedine Zidane.
They are talking of the possibility of Zidane or Mourinho – they are completely different coaches with completely different ideas of football.
“It is an erratic and whimsical president who has brought us to this situation,” he said, further piling the pressure on the club president Florentino Perez.
