France coach Deschamps happy to see Zidane back at Real Madrid

France coach Didier Deschamps is happy to see Zinedine Zidane back at Real Madrid.

Zidane surprised many in the game with his decision to return to Real this week after the dismissal of Santiago Solari.

But Deschamps says: "Surprised by his return? I do not know...

"Knowing him well enough, he must have thought it was the best thing to do.

"But it is a very good thing as a Frenchman and for football in general that he finds a place on the sidelines which he knows very well."
