Zinedine Zidane quits Real Madrid five days after Champions League win

Zinedine Zidane quits Real Madrid five days after Champions League win

Cape Town - The football world was left stunned by Zinedine Zidane's sensational decision to leave Spanish giants Real Madrid after an unprecedented successful spell at the club.

# Zidane averages a trophy every 16.5 matches as Real Madrid boss.

But Zidane won the confidence of players and the rest is history. He has signed a new five-year deal at Spurs and Daniel Levy is notoriously hard to deal with as Real Madrid know too well, after the struggle in 2013 to bring Gareth Bale to the club.

"I suppose the President knew [Zidane was leaving] before today, so he has for sure been getting in touch with possible coaches and getting their opinion of coming to Real Madrid". And I had to do this for everyone.

"This club deserves to continue to win and needs a change" he said, adding that he believed the "moment has come".

"This is a very hard and demanding club; I always said it is like a grinder, it is very exhausting to be there".

'I'm not going to coach another team right now, ' he said at a press conference on Thursday. I'll always be thankful.

"I am not the best coach tactically, but I have other things", he said ahead of the final. Perez constantly speaks about the values at the club and mentioned during the news conference about Zidane's ability to work with them in mind. He knows that I wanted to sign him more than anyone as a player, as well as a coach. They need another voice, to return to winning again. "I'm not here to talk about the future of this team". "With me it would have been complicated to keep winning". "This is a good moment to end it well". I do not forget that.

Ronaldo posted took to Instagram and posted: "I'm just proud of being your player".

"There are many reasons for this".

"Only one coach has been in charge of Madrid longer than three years in the last 48 years". But it is the moment to [leave] here.

The Frenchman revealed he told president Florentino Perez of his decision on Wednesday, with captain Ramos the only player he informed prior to the announcement. We take a look at a few of the contenders.

"It might be a "until soon" as Madrid have given everything to me".

Zidane is one of the only three managers, along with Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisely, to have won the UEFA European Cup three times having guided Real Madrid to Champions League glory in 2016, 2017 and 2018. This comes just five days after he won the Champions League with Madrid for a third season in a row.

Zidane has achieved unrivaled success in his first-ever major coaching role and could safely be called the greatest "rookie" manager.

Although Real lost only two of their first 15 league matches in the recently concluded Spanish championship, Ernesto Valverde's Barca were able to run away with the league following their vital 3-0 El Clasico win at the Bernabeu in December.
