Recent managers at Real Madrid have had a relatively short shelf-life regardless of their success, but Perez suggested that he wants to keep the former France international at the club for the long haul.
“We’re going to renew his contract when he returns from holiday. Until whenever he wants. There’s a great union between Zidane and the club,” he told reporters.
The Frenchman led the club to back-to-back Champions League titles and the club’s first La Liga crown in five years during his two-year spell at the helm, quickly establishing himself as one of the leading managers in world football.
He is also the first manager to be crowned European champion in consecutive seasons since Arrigo Sacchi in 1989 and 1990.
