Zinedine Zidane quits as Real Madrid manager after third Champions League crown

In January this year, Zidane confirmed he signed a contract extension at Real to keep him at the club until 2020 but just a month later said "when I feel there is nothing more to give, I'll walk away".

Speaking to a news conference today, Zidane said, "Everything changes" which " is why I took this decision".

"After winning a European Cup it is an unexpected decision", club president Florentino Perez commented.

A three-time Fifa World Player of the Year, and Ballon d'Or victor, Zidane has played more than 150 times for both Juventus and Real Madrid.

"It's a unusual moment, but this team needs a change to keep winning, it needs another speech, another work methodology and that's why I made this decision". "After three years, (the club) needs a change in speech, a new work methodology". But (Zidane) knows I wanted him as a player and as a manager. For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived.

Zidane said his decision had nothing to do with Real icon Cristiano Ronaldo hinting that he will also leave the club following the Champions League triumph on Saturday.

At the press conference, Zidane said: "This is my decision".

Zinedine Zidane next team odds: Where could Real Madrid legend go? "For many people, this will not make sense, but it does for me".

Zidane surprised the football world by resigning as Real Madrid coach just days after winning the Champions League. He knows there is always an appetite for him to return, that the bridge hasn't been burned.

The former World Player of the Year also won the Champions League in 2002 as a player with Los Blancos, scoring an emphatic volley against Bayer Leverkusen in the final at Hampden Park.

"If I was the manager here next season, it would have been tough for us to win trophies".

Luis Enrique did similar after his hugely successful three years in charge at Camp Nou between 2014-17.

"Madrid has given everything to me and I will be close to this club for the rest of my life". I'm not looking for another team.
