Zinedine Zidane Steps Down As Real Madrid Coach After Champions League Treble

GETTYZinedine Zidane QUITS Real Madrid Claims are circling in Spain that the boss is going

Speaking after Real Madrid's Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year, captain Sergio Ramos hinted that he wouldn't be surprised if coach Zinedine Zidane departed.

"That's why I chose to take this decision".

"I am doing this for the good of this team, for this club", Zidane explained in a hastily arranged press conference at Madrid's Valdebebas training ground.

Hinting at differences in summer planning Zidane said: 'If I don't think clearly that we are going to keep winning then it is best to leave rather than continue with silly things'.

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.

"I will always be close to this club, I know many people here and that relationship won't change".

Earlier this month, a vehicle in autopilot mode crashed into a stopped firetruck near Salt Lake City, Utah, injuring two people. Cota also said that a year ago, there had been another incident involving a Tesla colliding with a semi-truck in the same area.

I have No words to thank you for everything you've done for this shirt, Real Madrid and the Madrid fans.

Madrid's search for a replacement will, of course, begin as soon as possible.

TV presenter Josep Pederol revealed on La Sexta the last conversation Zinedine Zidane had with Florentino Perez before telling him he was resigning as Real Madrid coach. "I thank him for the work he has done".

Madrid's third-place LaLiga finish is likely the major factor in Zidane's departure, as Los Blancos ended the season 17 points adrift of bitter rivals and champions Barcelona.

"I have thought a lot about this decision and I can't go back on it."
I think it would be hard to keep winning if I stayed. "After three Champions Leagues in a row, and titles he chose to leave". In the very next year, Zidane upped the ante with another European Cup victory against the mighty Italian side Juventus. Perez also didn't talk much about the club's search for a new coach, although several names are being talked about in local media, including Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Joachim Loew and Arsene Wenger.

Being a star player himself, Zidane was the ideal manager to handle the big players of the club. "He would like one day to coach the French national team".
