The return of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid is being widely discussed, many are wondering how he could return to Madrid in a short time. One answer revealed was that there was a figure who played an important role in this matter, she was Veronique.
In this moment, Zidane asked his wife’s permission before returning to the Santiago Bernabeu. Veronique did have an important role in Zidane’s household which was known in detail by Giovanni Agnelli as the former president of Juventus.
In her confession, Agnelli had revealed the process of moving Zidane from Juventus to Real Madrid in 1999. Where Zidane was officially in uniform in Madrid with the title of the world’s most expensive player at that time.
“I want to keep Zidane. The problem is that his wife is the boss. I can’t do anything because Zidane is in charge,” Agnelli said.
Veronique’s figure in Zidane’s life is understandable, because both of them have long been in touch and interestingly the relationship is far from the word of gossip. They met in 1989 at a French nightclub and during that time Zidane was only 17 years old.

The inauguration of Zidane returned to Madrid to issue a long-term contract, in which the two officially established relations until the next 2022. The Madrid dare to bring Zidane back because of the historical achievements of Zidane who until now still remember, where the 52-year-old coach managed to deliver Madrid won the Champions League 3 times in a row.
