Zinedine Zidane steps down as Real Madrid manager

"After three years it's hard to continue coaching, even more so after winning three Champions Leagues".

Thursday afternoon saw Real Madrid rocked by the announcement that Zinedine Zidane had resigned as the club's coach, yet it appears as though this decision has come as a complete surprise to what the Frenchman had previously suggested. But I feel it's time.

Flanking Zidane at the press conference, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said the decision was "completely unexpected".

"It might be a "until soon" as Madrid have given everything to me. And that's why I took this decision".

"This is the moment to make a change, also for the players, after three years it is the right decision".

"Madrid has given everything to me and I will be close to this club for the rest of my life". It would have been hard for me to win again next year. How can I ask more from the players?

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is a strong contender to take over at the Bernabeu, but he signed a new long-term contract at Tottenham earlier this week. "I had to do this for everyone", he said. I tried to convince him but I know how it is.

"I want to thank Zizou for his dedication to the job, his passion and his affection".

He won the Spanish league title in his second season, then became the first manager to win the Champions League in his first three seasons when Real defeated Juventus in the 2017 final, and Liverpool this month.

"I am doing this for the good of this team, for this club".
