Fernando Hierro is back at Real Madrid, after being appointed as the successor to Zinedine Zidane as assistant manager to Carlo Ancelotti.

Hierro spent 14 years as a Real player, between 1989 and 2003, winning La Liga five times, three UEFA Champions League titles and a Copa del Rey, amongst others, before leaving in 2003, at the age of 35.

After a short spell at Al Rayyan, in Qatar, the former Spain captain joined Bolton in the summer of 2004 and spent one season at the Reebok Stadium, scoring once in 35 appearances.

The 46-year-old recently admitted he would be 'honoured' to be approached over a coaching or management role at Wanderers, but he now has bigger fish to fry after taking over the role as assistant manager at the Santiago Bernabeu.

His appointment comes after Zidane stepped down from the position, after agreeing to take over the management of Real's reserve team, Castilla, from next season.
