Zidane however is putting his reputation on the line, with the Real Madrid job now resembling something of a poison chalice: An ageing squad under-performing since Zidane's departure, with two managers receiving huge career reality checks after succumbing to the failure to meet utopian expectations at the Bernabeu.
Zidane could take training as early as Tuesday and be in charge for Madrid's La Liga game at home to Celta Vigo on Saturday. Before their 3-1 success against Liverpool, there were several calls from the Madrid faithful for Zidane to be replaced.
Madrid have struggled in recent weeks, after exiting the Champions League to Ajax and suffering back-to-back defeats to arch rivals Barcelona - one to dent their La Liga title hopes and one to knock them out of the Copa del Rey.
Zidane returned to the club for his second stint as manager, despite resigning from the role after winning a third consecutive Champions League title in May 2018.
Zinedine Zidane spoke to the media after returning to coach Real Madrid. We have enormous respect for the position and we always support the Real Madrid coach.
Zinedine Zidane rejects Real Madrid offer after call made
The Spanish giants suffered a shock European exit to Ajax last week and are now 12 points behind Barcelona in La Liga. "First of all it's good to have [Zidane] back as a coach".
As for Solari, after almost four and a half months in charge, he says goodbye to Madrid with a record of 21 victories, two draws and eight defeats.
Solari led the team to a 4-1 win at Valladolid on Sunday and was in charge of practice on Monday. He lasted only a few months at the helm.
Solari was handed a contract until 2021 after overseeing an improvement following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui in November. Other names mentioned included Juergen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, Joachim Loew and Antonio Conte, who was highly touted to take over from the fired Lopetegui.
The squad hasn't changed all that much and it's foreseeable that Zidane can reinvigorate Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, who have looked shadows of themselves this season.
