Zinedine Zidane has resigned as the manager of Real Madrid today.
The Frenchman made the announcement after calling for an impromptu press conference following a meeting with club President Florentino Perez.
Zidane enjoyed sensational success with the Los Blancos in two and a half years, winning the Champions League thrice and the LaLiga once apart from the Club World Cup.
According to Florentino Perez, “Zinedine Zidane communicated to me yesterday the unexpected decision that he will leave as coach.”
Zidane said, “I love this club and the president who gave me the chance to play for this club and manage the club of my dreams. But everything changes and that’s why I’ve taken the decision to leave.”
“What I think is that this team needs to continue winning but I think it needs a change, a different voice, another methodology and that’s why I took this decision.”
Madrid are currently searching for a world class coach to take up the position of Zidane.
