Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says will leave club

Zinedine Zidane has shockingly resigned as Real Madrid manager, days after guiding the Spanish giants to an unprecedented third successive Champions League title.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane called a surprise press conference on Thursday, 1pm Spain time.

Los Blancos were runners up on the SPanish League table in his first year, but stepped up in his second season by winning the La Liga and the Champions League title.

"I'm not going to coach any other team next season".

Zinedine Zidane has quit as Real Madrid manager.

With Wenger now available and suggesting he wants to continue working in the game at the age of 68, his appointment may be viewed by Perez as the ideal stop gap with some of the likely contenders for the job seemingly unavailable. "It's a club I love and I love the president too, he brought me to this huge club and I will always be grateful, but I think a change is needed so I will not be here next season". How can I ask more from the players? We always want more from the players, and a moment comes when I can not ask them for more. "He respects my decision and he wished me luck".

"This team has to continue winning and has to change".

Zidane led the Galacticos to claim the 2016 UCL title after beating their city rivals Atletico Madrid in his first season at the club.

Zidane's shock announcement was made at a hastily arranged press conference on Thursday lunchtime, with the French legend confirming his intention to step aside from his role in an announcement few predicted.

"I suppose the President knew [Zidane was leaving] before today, so he has for sure been getting in touch with possible coaches and getting their opinion of coming to Real Madrid".

Zidane has clearly seen the signs and believes it is the right time to walk away, with his head held high, while he revealed he will now take a break from coaching. "I'm not here to talk about the future of this team".
