Zinedine Zidane Confirming his decision to resign as real madrid coach

After a disappointing season in Real Madrid, which ended the season without winning a single trophy for the first time in 11 years, Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane resigned from the Club.

According to media report Zidane has resigned with immediate effect, just days after his club lose the La Liga tittle to Atletico Madrid in a fiercely contested league season.

Real Madrid the 13-time European Champions also lost to Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals as they failed to proceed to the finals.

An official announcement of his departure, said Romano, would be made “in the next hours/days”.

Only 10 days ago Zidane, who has a contract until 2022, denied media speculation that he had already told his players that he would be leaving at the end of the season.

“How am I going to tell my players that I am going now? It’s a lie,” he said after a 1-0 win at Athletic Bilbao.


But, perhaps tellingly, he added: “The rest, we will see at the end of the season.”

If confirmed, it marks the end of Zidane’s second spell in charge of the Spanish giants.

The 1998 World Cup winner first took the helm in January 2016 and guided Real to the 2017 La Liga title and an unprecedented hat-trick of Champions League titles before abruptly quitting on May 31, 2018.

He returned in 2019, winning a second La Liga crown in 2020 and the Spanish Super Cup.
