Zinedine Zidane Sensationally Quits As Real Madrid Coach!

In a turn of events, less than a week after guiding Real Madrid to a historic UEFA Champions League treble on the trot, head coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to quit his post as manager.
The 45-year-old Frenchman called an unexpected press conference on Thursday afternoon to reveal that he will be leaving after two-and-a-half years in charge.

Appearing alongside Real president Florentino Perez, Zidane said:

“ I have taken the decision to not continue going into the next season. For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived. It was not an easy decision.”

“I love this club, I love the president,” he said.

“He gave me the opportunity to come as a player and now manager and I am eternally grateful. But we have to change.

“I will be close to this club for the rest of my life. I want to thank the fans, who always supported me both as a coach and a player. There were tough moments during the season and although I was sometimes whistled at, I want to thank the fans.

“This is a beautiful moment as we have just won a third straight Champions League and I have now reflected and made this decision. Even the players need this change, I must thank them too.”

Zidane won nine trophies at the Bernabeu outfit in less than three years in charge as manager.
