If it seems like yesterday that Zizou stepped down after winning a third Champions League title in three years, that’s because it practically is. The look of bemusement and bereavement on Florentino Pérez as the news was announced proved prescient; Real have been a total mess since that day in late May. Remember Julen Lopetegui and all the fuss that caused for Spain’s World Cup? And how about Santiago Solari? He has proved no Ole Gunnar Solskjær. The big man is back, to paraphrase Wayne Rooney. And José Mourinho, constantly linked with the gig since he was sacked by Manchester United, may now have to start learning Chinese or Russian, or at least dust off that rusty Italian of his. And Gareth Bale will probably needs to get used to playing golf in chillier climes than his back-garden three-holer.
