Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says will leave club

31 May, 2018, 20:46 | Author: Ellis Copeland

Zidane was brought in to replace Raphael Benitez in January 2016, and has led the Madrid side to the three Champions League titles in the two and a half season he has been in charge.

Flanked by Perez, Zidane said: "I have taken the decision to not continue next year". I know it's a unusual moment for everyone involved, but I think it's the right decision. "After three years it needs another voice, another method of work, for this I took this decision". I will be around, close to this club all my life but the decision, maybe for many doesn't make any sense, for me it makes sense. After doing three years, it's the right decision.

"I want to thank the fans". And this is the right moment. "I had to do this for everyone", he said. "But everything changes and that's why I've taken the decision to leave". "They are one of the teams I loved as a kid but I felt it was a very sensitive period for Arsenal", he told beIN sports. After three years, it's what I have made a decision to do. But it is the moment to [leave] here. I love this club, I love the president, he's given me the chance to come as a player and a manager. "About what comes next, is not for me to say", said Zidane.

Zidane became the first coach to win a third straight European Cup when Real beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday, capping a remarkable period in his first job in senior club management.

Zidane plunged his Real Madrid future into doubt this morning by calling a shock press conference for 12pm [BST].

Whether something behind the scenes has occurred to change Zidane's mind is unclear, perhaps winning a third Champions League seemed a fitting conclusion to him, yet Los Blancos have now been left in an unenviable position.
