At an extraordinary press conference, Zinedine Zidan announced his decision to withdraw from Madrid’s technical leadership just days after winning the third consecutive Champions League. The French technician finally took the decision to leave Real, which he confirmed at an extraordinary press conference Thursday (31/05).
His future was uncertain during the season, and he had stressed that at the end of the year he would make his decision. Eventually “Zizhou” after the third consecutive win of the Champions League decided to say “goodbye”.
“I made the decision not to continue as coach of Real Madrid. It’s a strange moment, but this team needs a change to keep on winning. Another method of work, and that’s why I made this decision, “was the first words of Zidan, who announced his decision.
“Following the conquest of a European Cup was something we did not expect, but all we can do is respect the decision. It surprised me when I learned the decision. I want him to persuade him to stay, but I know how he is. I would like to thank him for everything he did for Real. It’s not a “goodbye.” But if a break is needed, it is something he is entitled to, “said the president, Florentino Pereth.
The French technician is leaving Real Madrid having won three Champions League, a Spanish league, a Spanish Super Cup, two European Super Cups and two World Cups since January 2016.
