Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon said, “It's a good choice. The other one was Mourinho,

“But I think in the last few days the leaders of the dressing room have pushed to reject that possibility.

“He left here with a lot of problems. I think he would have been another problem added to the ones we already have. First of all, it's good to have him (Zidane) back as a coach.”

Calderon has been the main advocate of Mourinho,  the ex-president made it clear that he is the only manager Perez respects.
