Zidane resigns as Real Madrid head coach in shock announcement

Zinedine Zidane leaves Real Madrid just days after leading club to third successive Champions League victory

Zinedine Zidane's abrupt departure from Real Madrid could spark a managerial merry-go-round that would send shockwaves through the Premier League.

"Pochettino is a good coach, no doubt he could be one of the candidates".

Arsene Wenger has revealed he turned down Real Madrid on multiple occasions and says he wants to be "tested" in his next role. I enjoy what is happening and what has to be will be.

"The players have nothing to do with my decision, it is about what I think". I know this president likes him and he was trying to offer him all the power of the club a few years ago.

Zidane was understood to be under contract at Madrid until 2020. "Neither written nor verbal".

It comes after Zidane quit as boss of Real Madrid after leading them to a third successive Champions League triumph.

He added: "All managers feel a type of loneliness when doing this job". But when he takes a decision, the only thing we can do is respect it.

According to Jack Pitt-Brooke and Miguel Delaney of The Independent, Tottenham Hotspur manager Pochettino is Real president Florentino Perez's No. 1 choice to be the new Los Blancos boss, and he "is not thought to be considering any other choices".

Asked if he'd be ready for the challenge of managing Madrid, he said: "I'm ready now for getting lunch with friends!"

"Chelsea will be doing everything they can to keep him there for at least another year, but Real Madrid were linked heavily last year and could come back in for him again". For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived.

Zidane's retirement as a Real Madrid player in 2006 also came as a surprise, when the then-33-year-old made a decision to hang up his boots in the aftermath of that year's World Cup final despite having another year on his club contract.

"That's the passion that translates to everyone. I am so happy in Tottenham and I'm so proud that Tottenham showed the commitment and trust in the way that Daniel Levy (Spurs chairman) showed me, and of course, we have a lot of dreams, we have a lot of objectives".

The Tottenham boss, fresh from signing a new, lucrative five-year contract at the end of last month, is obviously a busy man and likely to scout at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
