You're probably well aware by now: Zinedine Zidane has replaced Rafa Benitez as the new manager of Real Madrid. 

The legendary midfielder, who has been learning his trade as boss of Real Madrid Castilla, is finally set to take to the Santiago Bernabeu dugout as the main man. 

Zidane certainly has a job on his hands as he goes in search of overhauling the duo of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at the summit of La Liga.

Of course, Zidane more than anyone will be well aware that he has to claim silverware in the Spanish capital sooner rather than later. 

But with Luis Enrique and Barcelona around, it won't be easy. Zidane, of course, has quite the history with the boss of the Catalans.

In fact, the duo were involved in a scrap back in 2003. Zidane raised his hand to Enrique after the Barcelona man suggested that the former France international had elbowed defender Carles Puyol. 

Zidane has to wait 

But Zidane will have to wait patiently for his opportunity to come up against Enrique once again. Barcelona, who secured a remarkable 4-0 victory against Real Madrid earlier this season, will play host to their rivals on April 3. 

El Clasico is never one to be missed, but the next fixture could have an added edge to it as the two legendary figures rekindle their rivalry. 

Who will win La Liga? Have your say below!
